Energy Recovery Ventilation
“How can we use stagnant building air to do something productive?”
When air is trapped inside a building for too long, it can become unhealthy and stagnant. However, could we possibly use our engineering mindsets to do something productive with this? Well, we know that heat exchangers can be used to make use of any fluids. And oftentimes, incoming air into buildings is suboptimal. So what if we were to use a heat exchanger to cycle the external air with the old interior air to keep our building fresh? This system is known as Energy Recovery Ventilation and holds much promise for the future of the HVAC industry.
