(Section from the Passive House estate at Hannover trip of the 10th Conference on Passive Houses, Sunday, May 21st 2006) This is how a counterflow heat exchanger works: The warm air (red, extract air) flows through a channel and delivers heat to the plates. This air will leave the exchanger cooled (orange, then called exhaust air). On the opposite side of the exchanger plates the fresh air (blue) flows in separate channels. This air will absorb the heat and it will leave the exchanger with a higher temperature (but still unpolluted), then called supply air (green). The counterflow principle allows for almost 100% recovery of the temperature difference, if the exchanger is long enough. In practise, systems with 75% to
