Your home was built to be energy efficient, and Lifebreath’s HRV helps it stay that way. Sometimes stale air can get trapped indoors, causing poor air quality for you and your family. Lifebreath units work to remove stale indoor air and replace with fresh outdoor air, improving air quality and helping to prevent moisture build-up.

How does it work?

A Heat Recovery Ventilator (HRV) is an air-to-air energy exchanger found in modern, energy efficient homes. In winter, the HRV’s patented aluminum core transfers heat from outgoing, stale air to incoming fresh air so that it doesn’t need to be fully reheated. In summer, the HRV works in reverse; removing heat from incoming air, helping your home stay cool. Lifebreath HRVs gives you fresher, cleaner air without adding load to your heating and air conditioning.
