How Energy Recovery Wheels Work: The wheel technology is housed on the roof in an energy recovery unit. Energy recovery wheels rotate between the incoming outdoor air stream and the building exhaust air stream. As the wheels rotate, a percentage of the heat and moisture differential is transferred from one air stream to the other. Consequently, the outdoor air is 'pre-conditioned' significantly reducing the capacity and energy needed from the mechanical HVAC system.
