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

I had my ducts and vents cleaned in March 2021 and I was impressed by how thoughtful Richie was. As he cleaned the ducts, he made sure to not leave a mess when he went from room to room. When it came to the dryer duct, Richie even cleaned up the giant dust bunny that he pulled out, and this was outside! I would definitely be back for my next duct and vent cleaning with Alberta Furnace Cleaning! Thank you to both Xianglong and Richie!

Equipment was new and well maintained. Staff were pleasant to deal with and explained what they were doing. They efficiently dealt with their business. Cleaned up after themselves. No concerns at all.

- Barry Maron

They came early and did an amazing job cleaning all of our vents, making our dryer vent clean as a whistle and making our home safe and clean again! I had my 10 month old at home at time and they were so kind about making sure he was okay with the noise. Cannot thank them enough for their work! Get your services done by them everytime!
