Abstract
In this study, the performance of ventilation systems with heat recovery in residential buildings with a low energy demand for heating was evaluated. In a completely heated building, the percentage of useful recovered heat will be equal to the nominal effectiveness of the heat exchanger. In the case some rooms are not heated, they will still receive preheated air. This part of the recovered heat will not directly increase comfort, so it does not completely contribute to the energy savings of the building. Simulations were done with TRNSYS to assess the percentage of usefully recovered heat. This value was found to be lower than the nominal effectiveness, but varying with several parameters.
