Heat Recovery Ventilation (HRV)


You need a specific set of expertise if you have an HRV in your home

Heat recovery ventilation systems are becoming popular in family homes across Cornwall because of the many benefits that they offer. This green technology will help your boiler and other heating systems to work more efficiently in your home, which means that you will save on your energy bills each month, as well as have warm air circulating in your house in the colder months of the year and remove indoor air pollutants. What could be better?

So, how does a heat recovery ventilator in Cornwall work? Well, it is pretty simple and this device can do a lot for your family home. It works by exhausting the air from inside your home, as well as bringing in the cool and fresh air from the outside. These two air streams will mix within the device to produce a comfortable living temperature inside your home, with any harmful particles removed. The end result is pre-treated, lovely air that can circulate freely in your home. This is especially helpful if anyone in your family has allergies, as excess duct is removed and this will ventilate the air and make it cleaner. In addition, if you have condensation on your windows and surfaces, a Cornwall heat recovery ventilation system will take away this moisture.

You can have a heat recovery ventilation system installed in your home before you know it. This should not be attempted by yourself. The process requires you to use tools and without the skills and knowledge that you need to have it up and running properly, it is not safe to take on this job by yourself, no matter how DIY you are. The best way to make sure that you have your heat recovery ventilation in Cornwall installs properly and ready to go is with a professional. This is a fairly new device for homes but a professional that has training and experience will know what they need to do to have your new heat recovery ventilation up and running ready to make your home even better.


Of course, you will have to make sure that your heat recovery ventilation system is properly maintained to make sure that it working as efficiently as it should. After all, what is the point in investing money into heat recovery ventilation in Cornwall if it is not working as well as you thought it would? A professional like Houde Mechanical offers maintenance services that can make sure that your heat recovery ventilator is in good order. It is just like the other appliances in your home and servicing it regularly means that you get more out of the system and make sure that it lasts longer. For example, the filters on your heat recovery ventilation should be replaced annually to make sure that they don’t become clogged and to improve the airflow performance. If you have bad filters and they have become blocked, this will affect the efficiency of your whole system. In addition, the grilles should be cleaned on a regular basis to that fresh air can be distributed into the rooms in your home. The heat exchanger will need to be cleaned too and this is usually replaced every 10 years.

The best way you can have your heat recovery ventilation in Cornwall at its best is by choosing a professional for servicing. They will have the skills and experience that you need to make sure that your system is working efficiently and your home is enjoying clean and refreshing air.

Steve was great to deal with. He came to my house and sat down with me to show me options on exactly what I needed, not just what they wanted to sell me like others. Despite the millions questions I had, he answered every one of them kindly without hesitation.

Houde Mechanical Heating and Cooling Ltd. were able to set up my pool heater when no other company was willing to take on the job and fit me into their busy summer schedule. I would not hesitate to recommend this company for your heating and cooling needs.

Thank you Houde Mechanical for your prompt and professional service. Because of you, we are enjoying a fantastic fall in our newly “heated” in ground pool.

Lianne Chaput | Residential Project

Punctual, clean and efficient job. Did not go above quoted price. They also looked after filling out energy rebate application.

Mr. Leger | Residential Project

Hot water tank, furnace and A/C installed.

Excellent service they service all my equipment once a year. No problems setting up an appointment always on time.

Patrick King | Residential Project

I have hired Houde Mechanical more than once and I keep going back to them. They do what they say they will, when they say the will and within the budget set. Steve and his crews have always been there to help and have no hesitation in recommending different options regardless of what I have asked. They have put in my furnace, A/C, two natural gas fireplaces, reworked the ducting to help save us time and effort. I like the service and always feel like a valued customer. That means a lot in today’s market. I have no problem recommending Houde Mechanical and in fact, have done so. Keep up the great work!

Monique Stevens | Residential Project

It first began at the home show in Cornwall. Steve was very knowledgeable in his presentation of the work to be performed at my house. Estimates were performed and starting date was zeroed in. The schedule of work was firmed up as an ancient boiler had to be removed. Minimum of disruption was respected and clean up was prompt.
Installation of the new system was performed by very knowledgeable technicians in a continuous process with attention given to cleanliness and efficiency.
Bravo to the Houde Team.

Paula Joncas | Residential Project

Our experience with the Owners Steve & Lynn and technicians (Joey) has been most satisfactory professionally. Although sub contractors of the General Contractor, Houde has been outstanding in its quality of work and ethic. They are knowledgeable, experienced and most of all polite and caring. So much so that we have engaged Houde’s services for annual maintenance of HVAC equipment in newly completed duplex & triplexes… a total of 8 units from basic furnace / AC to radiant heating, HRV & everything in between.

Mrs. Rashid | Portal Custom Homes Ltd.

I have had three separate installations by Houde Mechanical, all with exceptional installation and service. In 2006 a wall AC was installed, serviced several times and is working well; in 2016 a gas furnace was installed then two years later an AC unit was added requiring some retrofit. The installations were clean and neat (looks good), the installers were efficient and courteous.

I would not hesitate to recommend Houde Mechanical.
