Fresh, clean air is essential to good health. However, mold, condensation, and other issues that can have serious consequences for the structure of your home and for the health of its occupants.
Heat recovery ventilator ( also called fresh air system) and air purifiers are useful "weapons" to solve the problem of home air quality.
The Basic Principle
The heat recovery ventilator is an air circulation treatment system consisting of a ventilator, a pipeline, etc. The main function is to filter and purify the outdoor fresh air into the room through the pipeline, while diluting the indoor carbon dioxide content and increasing the indoor oxygen content, and Indoor dirty air is discharged outside to keep indoor air fresh.
The air purifier is an internal circulation system that uses filtration technology to filter or adsorb pollutants and bacteria in the air in the enclosed space to achieve air purification and disinfection, but does not provide fresh air.
The difference between heat recovery ventilator and air purifier
Heat recovery ventilator is expensive, air purifiers are cheaper.
2. Purification speed
Air purifiers can purify indoor air quickly, but purification speed of heat recovery ventilator is relatively slow.
Air purifiers have limitations in use, are more suitable for individual rooms.
The heat recovery ventilator can comprehensively improve the indoor air environment and transport fresh air into the room.
Choose air purifiers or heat recovery ventilator?
Heat recovery ventilator: If your home is a new home, it has not been renovated. Then, you can choose the fresh air system. Because this requires the cross beam, the wall hole, and the pipe, it is a systematic project. Of course, if you think this project is more complicated, you can choose an air purifier to remove formaldehyde and improve the air quality.
Air purifier: If it is an old house, the family has been renovated. Then, the ordinary fresh air system is not realistic and not beautiful. At this time, you can choose a portable air purifier, which is cheap and convenient.
Air purifiers are cheaper and can purify indoor air quickly, but they have limitations in use, are more suitable for individual rooms, and cannot suppress the rise of carbon dioxide in the room.
The heat recovery ventilator can comprehensively improve the indoor air environment and transport fresh air into the room, but the purification speed is relatively slow, the price is relatively expensive, and the installation and maintenance are more complicated. The fresh air system using electrostatic precipitator technology will produce ozone. If the ozone index is too high, it will also cause harm to human health.
As for the choice of fresh air and air purifiers, it is mainly based on the needs of the user's living environment. In any case, improving the quality of life and benefiting your health is the most important thing.
