Indoor Air Quality — Air Exchangers - HRV, ERV,
Custom Air Filtration - Hepa Filters and UVG

Clean air is essential for good health, and this is especially true when it comes to indoor air quality. Healthy Home Heating & Air Conditioning Ltd. makes Indoor Air Quality our top priority.

An air exchanger is a device used to improve air quality using the principle of air exchange. Fresh air is drawn in from a port open to the outside of the building, and passed through a chamber surrounded by indoor air. Highly conductive materials remove the energy (heat) from the warmer air and send it to the cooler air. Fresh air is then channelled into the house, and the indoor air is expelled outside.

Cleaning the Air in an R-2000 Home

R-2000 homes are built to be extremely airtight. This limits the uncontrolled flow of air in and out of the home and greatly reduces heat loss and moisture damage to the building structure. To complement this air tightness and ensure a healthy living environment, R-2000 homes use a mechanical ventilation system to remove pollutants from the home by replacing stale indoor air with fresh outdoor air. These pollutants come from a wide range of sources — household contents and materials, people and their activities as well as family pets.

In most R-2000 homes, a mechanical ventilation system is used. This system allows fresh air to be distributed throughout the house. A properly installed system, operated and maintained exhausts indoor air pollutants and excess humidity to the outdoors while distributing fresh air throughout the house.

The essence of proper ventilation is a continuous flow of clean, fresh air as well as the removal of stale, polluted air. These are also key factors in optimal indoor air quality and GOOD HEALTH. There are two types of systems available, depending on your needs: Heat Recovery Ventilator (HRV) and Energy Recovery Ventilator (ERV).

Air Exchanger with Energy Recovery Ventilator (ERV)

Healthy Home Heating & Air Conditioning Ltd. Toronto, Newmarket, Peterborough, Ontario, Canada Installs vanEE HRV & ERV's

Transfers heat and moisture from one airstream to another, and is the ideal system to maintain proper humidity levels. Excellent for year-round use and ideal for homes with air conditioning and high outdoor humidity. Filters outdoor pollens and expels indoor pollutants to the outside, exchanging the air in the home.

Air Exchanger with Heat Recovery Ventilator (HRV)

Moisture-proof propylene core expels excess humidity that occurs, especially during the heating season, preventing potential health problems, as well as moisture damage to window frames and surrounding walls. Replaces stale indoor air with fresh, clean outdoor air. Filters outdoor pollens and expels indoor pollutants to the outside, exchanging the air in the home.1

Hepa Filters (High-Efficiency Particulate Air)



"High-Efficiency Particulate Air" or "HEPA" is a type of air filter. Filters meeting the HEPA standard have many applications, including use in medical facilities, automobiles, aircraft, and homes. The filter must satisfy certain standards of efficiency such as those set by the United States Department of Energy (DOE). To qualify as HEPA by government standards, an air filter must remove 99.97% of all particles greater than 0.3 micrometre from the air that passes through. A filter that is qualified as HEPA is also subject to interior classifications.2


Ultraviolet Germicidal Irradiation (UVGI)

"Ultraviolet germicidal irradiation (UVGI)" is a disinfection method that uses ultraviolet (UV) light at sufficiently short wavelength to kill microorganisms.

UVGI utilizes short-wavelength ultraviolet radiation (UV-C) that is harmful to micro-organisms. It is effective in destroying the nucleic acids in these organisms so that their DNA is disrupted by the UV radiation. This removes their reproductive capabilities and kills them.2

UVGI Air Purification Technology — Ozone and worry free! Your green solution for air purification.

Most indoor air quality products merely trap pollutants, but a UV light actually kills mold, viruses, and fungus in your indoor air. UV Air Treatment systems use proven technology and expose your re-circulated indoor air to UVC light which kills/deactivates micro-organisms and sanitizes your air.

An air conditioning coil is a prime location for bacteria and mold growth which can become airborne. Particularly in the summer months when your air conditioning is running to keep you cool.

A UV light can be mounted on your return air duct where it will kill most of the micro-organisms passing the lamp, and they will be trapped in your replaceable dust/allergen furnace filter. You can also mount the UV light above your Air Conditioning coil or Cooling Coil where it will kill 99.9% of the mold and bacteria growth there.3
