AbstractThe main objective of the study was to determine the thermal performance parameters of an air-to-air heat exchanger and an exhaust air heat recovery heat pump. The experimentally determined performance parameters were used to estimate the energy savings that would be achieved by using these devices in houses located in various regions of Canada. Using the test house as a model, the predicted energy savings using the heat exchanger were between 2600 and 5000 kW.h and for the exhaust air heat recovery heat pump, between 5000 and 7100 kW.h, depending on the degree-days of the location.
