Air Heat Recovery Apparatus

An air heat recovery apparatus is a device used to recover and reuse the heat that is generated from various sources, such as industrial processes or building ventilation systems. The apparatus works by extracting the heat from the air that is being exhausted and transferring it to the incoming air stream. This process helps to reduce the amount of energy required to heat or cool a space, resulting in cost savings and a more sustainable approach to heating and cooling. Air heat recovery apparatuses can be used in a variety of settings, including commercial and industrial buildings, as well as residential homes. They are particularly useful in buildings that require a constant supply of fresh air, such as hospitals and schools, as they can help to maintain a comfortable indoor environment while also reducing energy consumption. There are several different types of air heat recovery apparatuses, including heat exchangers, which transfer heat between two fluids without them coming into contact with each other, and rotary heat exchangers, which use a rotating wheel to transfer heat between the incoming and outgoing air streams. Other types of air heat recovery apparatuses include plate heat exchangers, run-around coils, and heat pipes. Overall, air heat recovery apparatuses are an effective way to reduce energy consumption and promote sustainability in buildings. By recovering and reusing the heat that is generated from various sources, these devices can help to create a more efficient and comfortable indoor environment while also reducing the carbon footprint of the building.
