Learn about Ductless Heat Recovery Ventilator

Ductless Heat Recovery Ventilator

A ductless heat recovery ventilator provides fresh air into a home from the outdoors while recovering heat from the air to save energy. Unlike a ducted heat recovery ventilator, a ductless unit doesn't require ductwork to introduce fresh air into the home's rooms.

Ductless heat recovery ventilators (HRV) are a great addition for homeowners who require an HRV but have limited space or no existing ductwork.

Depending on your needs, ductless heat recovery ventilators can operate independently or as part of a multi-unit decentralized system working together to provide fresh air to multiple rooms. It's important to note that ductless heat recovery ventilators will need to be installed in each room or area of the home that requires fresh air.

Ductless HRVs are available in various lengths, so it's important to consider where the unit will be installed and the ideal unit length. Look for low-profile units that can fit inconspicuously into your home. Many new units are smart-ready, meaning they are wifi or Bluetooth capable and can integrate into an existing smart home setup or controlled remotely with a mobile application. It's also essential to compare units by efficiency, humidity recovery, flow rate, surface sound pressure level, and standard sound pressure level.

Energy savings is one of the most important components of home sustainability. Heat recovery ventilators introduce the ability to manage indoor air quality and moisture while reducing the energy cost of heating or cooling the incoming fresh air.

A ductless heat recovery ventilator requires less energy than a standard LED light bulb to operate
