According to the author, a building’s heating and cooling load can be lowered by recovering energy to and from the building exhaust air with an energy recovery exchanger. This energy exchange comes with an energy cost, static pressure loss across the exchanger that can add to the power required both by the fans supplying conditioned air to the space and the fans exhausting air. The added fan power can be significant and may lead one to ponder: is the cooling or heating recovered really worth it? This article explores the issue by covering topics such as energy recovery placement and performance.
