Heat Recovery Ventilation Units are products designed to replace utilised air with outdoor air that provides an option to recover (or salvage) waste heat from the exhaust air stream from a building ventilation system and use it to heat the incoming air stream to the same building ventilation system. Heat Recovery Ventilation Units use heat exchanger technologies to recover heat from the exhaust air of building ventilation systems that would otherwise be lost to atmosphere.
