A heat recovery ventilator is used to recover some of the warmth or coolness of air being ventilated from the home while also bringing in fresh air from the outdoors. As you can imagine, these units and the corresponding ductwork can accumulate a lot of dust and bacteria over several years of constant use. That’s why Sunny Carpet and Air Duct Cleaning offers HRV cleaning to Victoria, Duncan, Nanaimo, and all our service areas.
Why You Should Have Your HRV Ducts Cleaned
While HRVs are marvels of modern heating and cooling systems, they also accumulate dust, allergens, bacteria, and other pollutants coming in and out of your home. Over time, this accumulation can not only impact your indoor air quality, but can lessen the effectiveness of the HRV system itself. When properly serviced, an HRV should be able to recover up to 85% of the energy from the stale air exiting your home.
How We Clean HRV Ducts
To ensure properly cleaned HRV ducts, our technicians start by removing the core and filters of the heat recovery ventilator (these are cleaned last to avoid recontamination). We then set up an air line and use vacuum-powered negative pressure to pull contaminants out of the duct works. Next, all vents and fresh air supply runs are brushed, blown out, and sterilized. We then clean and sterilize the HRV unit itself, including the core, motors, and filters.
After our technicians have re-installed the core and filters, we then power up the unit to ensure it is cycling as it should.
