Everyone deserves to have a comfortable and healthy indoor environment. However, with modern homes, ventilation can be compromised in favor of greater energy efficiency – this can lead to stale indoor air, excess moisture, and mold growth. Air exchangers are installed to solve ventilation problems and improve indoor air quality. At Ravinia Plumbing, Sewer, Heating & Electric, we offer specialized air exchanger services in Chicago’s North Shore and throughout Chicagoland to help homeowners solve their indoor air quality issues.

What Is an Air Exchanger?

A home’s duct system is an essential component of a heating and cooling system. It plays a critical role in maintaining comfortable temperatures in every room of the home. The duct system consists of two types of ducts – supply and return ducts.

Supply ducts are responsible for distributing conditioned air (heated or cooled) from the HVAC system to each room in the house. Return ducts, on the other hand, are responsible for collecting air from the rooms and returning it to the HVAC system to be conditioned again.

An air exchanger is a mechanical ventilation system connected to the home’s ductwork that helps to remove polluted indoor air and replace it with fresh outdoor air. It works by extracting stale indoor air from areas across the home and expelling it outside. At the same time, it brings in fresh outdoor air.

The process involves exchanging the heat energy between the incoming fresh air and outgoing stale air. The heat energy from the stale air is transferred to the fresh air, which is then warmed, thus reducing the amount of energy needed to heat the fresh air. that is filtered and heated or cooled by the HVAC system before distributing it throughout the house.

What Is an Air Exchanger Used For?

Air exchangers are used to provide ventilation in homes, especially in areas where natural ventilation is inadequate. They are beneficial for people with respiratory ailments such as allergies, asthma, or sensitive immune systems. Air exchangers help to reduce the concentration of indoor air pollutants and lower the risk of moisture buildup and mold development.
