Traditional ventilation methods, like opening a window or use of a common bath fan, do not adequate ventilation as they do not provide satisfactory moisture control and indoor air quality. Another disadvantage with the traditional methods is that while they exchange fresh air for stale air, heat is lost in the process.  A Heat Recovery Ventilator system removes the heat from the outgoing air and inserts it into the incoming air and has an 80% efficiency rate.
