What Is A Home Air Exchanger And Why Do You Need One?

A home air exchanger is a device that exchanges stale indoor air with fresh outdoor air, while recovering heat or energy in the process. An air exchanger helps you keep your home healthy and fresh by removing pollutants, allergens, odors, and excess humidity. It also helps you save energy and money by reducing the heating and cooling load of your HVAC system.

There are two types of air exchangers: heat recovery ventilators (HRVs) and energy recovery ventilators (ERVs). HRVs transfer heat from the outgoing air to the incoming air, while ERVs transfer both heat and moisture. Depending on your climate and your home's needs, you can choose the best type of air exchanger for your situation.  Discover Efficiency installs and services HRV air exchangers, which is what the majority of new homes in Nova Scotia have, according to Efficiency Nova Scotia.

How to Choose the Right Air Exchanger for Your Home?

The right air exchanger for your home depends on several factors, such as the size of your home, the number of occupants, the ventilation rate, and the type of recovery. To help you choose the right air exchanger, we offer a free consultation and quote service. We will assess your home's ventilation needs and recommend the best air exchanger model and brand for you. We can install or replace almost any brand of air exchanger.

How Much Does a Home Air Exchanger Cost?

The cost of home air exchangers will vary depending on the type, size, and brand of the device, as well as the installation complexity and location. Air exchanger costs typically start at $2500, plus installation fees. The installation of an air exchanger requires professional skills and tools, as it involves ductwork, wiring, and venting. Your home will already have to have the proper ductwork ready for our team to install the air exchanger, as we do not offer ductwork services.

How to Maintain and Clean Your Air Exchanger?

To ensure the optimal performance and longevity of your air exchanger, you need to maintain and clean it regularly. Maintenance and cleaning tasks include replacing or cleaning the filters, cleaning the core, checking the ducts, and adjusting the settings.


We offer comprehensive and convenient air exchanger cleaning services. We can service and clean your air exchanger at least once a year, or more often if needed. We can also provide you with tips and advice on how to keep your air exchanger in good shape.

“We had two pumps installed and Cameron was prompt with our initial inquiries and showed professionalism through our entire experience.
Great pricing and transparent communication further added to the positive experience. We are extremely happy with the product, customer service, and reliability that we received from Discover Efficiency HVAC."

"I booked Discover Efficiency for a cleaning of my heat pump and was thoroughly impressed as Cameron who is the owner and operator found some other issues. He took it upon himself to order the replacement parts that were under the manufacturer’s warranty. Once they were received he made arrangements and schedule time to have these changed out. When you have the owner of a company doing the work you can guarantee a quality job. Cheers and thanks"
