The paper goal is to give the short study of the possible energy saving by forced ventilation with integrated temperature recuperation in the living buildings, which must be permanently ventilated. The energy losses by ventilation with better constructions isolation grow relatively up. The basic thermal calculations explain the efficiency dependence on the outer temperature and the saved energy or power. The flow calculations give the principal dimensions of recuperators and the ventilators

The comparison of advertised savings of expensive products with typical temperatures in middle Europe is critical to the price of these devices produced in short series. The results from flow and thermal calculation can help not only in the recuperating unit choice in shopping, but also in DIY hobby realisation of simple counter flow recuperator for house. Only the mass production can reduce the price and bring wider use of this energy saving device.
