HRV (Heating Recovery Ventilator) Cleaning

If you don't know what that is, keep reading!

An “HRV” or Heat Recovery Ventilator is a feature of your heating system that helps to better capture energy from exhaust air from your furnace and transfer it to the fresh air coming in from outside.

It has two separate air handling systems:

  • One collects and exhausts stale indoor air
  • Another draws in outdoor air and distributes it through the home

HRV’s are often located high on the wall above your furnace and resemble a cold air return grille. 

Since an HRV is part of the HVAC system, we must clean them to guarantee the whole system has been cleaned. We clean the unit itself by removing and cleaning the heat exchange core and fans.

Your HRV will have 2 filters, one on each side, and they should be vacuumed, washed & dried at least every 2 months. Consult your HRV’s owner’s manual for more on how The Heat Recovery Ventilator (HRV) maintains air quality in your home.

What Our Customers Have To Say

Joseph and his partner cleaned my furnace and dryer vent with absolutely no issues! They were efficient and very clean, and so friendly! I am so glad I went with Alberta Furnace as they were professional and so kind. Would highly recommend them to anyone :)

Recently had my furnace cleaning done. The fellas were great! They called ahead of time so I could put the pup outside, they were polite and quick. When they came inside they wore protective booties so they kept the floors clean. They also fixed my dryer lint trap when cleaning out the dryer!! It was missing a screw so the lint was going where it wasn’t supposed to. They also let me know that having both furnace and a/c, my filters should be changed 2x a year - not something I was ever told by furnace install company who “services” my furnace on a paid plan! So Alberta Furnace probably saved me a lot of money and headache down the road. 10/10 would definitely recommend this company and crew. Will definitely use them again.
