They work by letting the fresh air mix with the existing room air. Not really heated except by the proximity of the ductwork. And it's a great idea.

You get a heat exchanger (heat recovery ventilator, HRV) that warms or cools the air with the air going in the opposite direction. If you want to keep the humidity where it is as well, you need and ERV, energy recovery ventilator.
