Heat recovery

Heat recovery means making use of thermal energy that is readily available. A common example is controlled mechanical ventilation. In order to save energy and make optimum use of the thermal energy that is already available, a heat exchanger extracts thermal energy from the stale extract air, which is then used to heat the incoming fresh air.
