How can I determine the best location for my energy recovery system in my home?

If you’re looking to install an energy recovery system in your home, finding the right location is key. An energy recovery system helps reduce the cost of cooling and heating your home by recovering heat from the air that is leaving your house and using it to pre-heat or pre-cool air entering your home. This means you can enjoy a comfortable indoor climate while also reducing your energy bills.

When deciding where to install an energy recovery ventilator (ERV), there are several things to consider. Firstly, you need to identify any areas of the house that may need additional ventilation. Kitchens, bathrooms and laundry rooms are usually the areas most in need of extra ventilation due to moisture build-up. You’ll also want to look for any locations in your home that will ensure adequate airflow for the ERV – for example, near a window or door that is regularly used, or near a return air register.

Next, you’ll want to think about how much space you have available for installation. ERVs come in different sizes and capacities so it’s important to make sure you have enough space in the chosen location for whichever model you decide on. You’ll also want to consider whether it will be easier to service or maintain the ERV if it is installed in an easily accessible area such as a hallway or basement.

Finally, when choosing a location for your ERV, it’s important to remember that it should be kept away from sources of dust and dirt such as windowsills or radiators as this could interfere with its performance. It’s also worth noting that some models require power outlets nearby so make sure you keep this in mind when selecting a location too!

By considering these factors carefully, you should be able to determine the best spot for your energy recovery system and start enjoying all its benefits!
