Energy Recovery Wheels | HVAC Enthalpy & Heat

As the cost of energy rises engineers are looking for ways to improve and increase energy efficiency. Aside from HVAC equipment with higher energy efficiency rates, improving structures for less heat loss and heat gain, and building automation systems giving the equipment precision control for better efficiency of the equipment, there are other ways to increase energy efficiency inside buildings. One of the ways to increase energy efficiency inside buildings is to add energy recovery wheels to the economizer systems. A US Department of Energy study concluded energy recovery wheels can save over 15% of the energy used in commercial HVAC applications.

Prevent Poor Ventilation in the Home | HVAC and Health


Prevent Poor Ventilation in the Home

You already know that inadequate ventilation in the home can lead to mold, mildew, and poor indoor airflow. This, in turn, can trap pollutants indoors, leading to allergies and other, more serious health risks. So what can you do to prevent this? Fortunately, you have several options, including energy efficient ones. Here are some of them.

Prevent Poor Ventilation in the Home – Install a Ceiling Fan

Ceiling fans help circulate the air around your home. They reduce your cooling bill by drawing cool air upwards on warm days. In the winter, ceiling fans are also efficient, reducing your heating bill. For instance, if you use a fireplace, using a ceiling fan can make it more efficient by distributing the heated air.

HVAC Tips: Helping You Learn

You can add energy savings by placing a blanket wrap insulation around your water heaters. Additionally, for electric water heaters, you can have a timer added to the power circuit to turn the water heater off in times when there is no usage. For example: Set the timer to turn the water heater off from 10 p.m. to 4 a.m. Most timers can be customized and set for different times so that the water heater is turned off for most of the day and night. This, along with the insulation (which will keep the water hotter longer), can save in energy usage and your energy costs.
