Unraveling the mysteries of Heat Recovery Ventilators…that’s the topic of this month’s Conversations in Conservation event, set for next Thursday (April 25th).

Heat Recovery Ventilators (HRVs) are systems that bring fresh air into buildings. That air is pre-warmed by air that’s being exhausted. HRVs are essential to making our well insulated new and retrofitted homes comfortable, healthy and efficient. They are now required under the City of Whitehorse’s building bylaw and are becoming a common sight in homes across the north. 

But how do they work? What is going on inside?  What do you have to do to keep them running efficiently? Does your home or business need one?

Guest speaker Craig Olsen of Olsen Resource Consulting will be able to answer all these questions and more.  He will also have a few HRVs on hand to show you what’s inside.              

Conversations in Conservation is a regular series held the last Thursday of every month.

All the events take place at the Westmark Whitehorse Hotel from 12 noon to 1 p.m.

There is no cost and everyone is welcome. Cookies and refreshments will be served.

For further information, please contact or call (867) 393-3897.
