Ventilators bring fresh air into your home without losing heating or cooling energy. Their unique energy exchange system transfers the heating or cooling energy from the stale air being exhausted from your home to the fresh air the ventilator brings into your home.

If your family suffers from allergies, ventilators are a much better alternative for introducing fresh air into your home versus opening your windows. They also do a great job of reducing cooking and pet odors, smoke and other pollutants out of your home. 

How it Works

1. Internal Air Intake

Draws in stale indoor air, directing it through the heat exchanger core.

2. External Air Intake

Draws outside air, venting it through the air filter.

3. Internal Air Exhaust

Vents indoor air outside from the heat exchanger core. Up to 84% of the indoor heat has been removed, helping minimize utility costs.

4. Fresh Air Exhaust

Vents conditioned, heated outdoor air into your living areas.

5. High Efficiency Heat Recovery Core

Extracts heat from stale indoor air and transfers it to fresh outdoor air for maximum comfort with little heat loss. This core also removes excess humidity from recirculated air – lower humidity levels help you stay comfortable at higher temperatures in the summer and lower temperatures in the winter.

6. Ventilator Motor

Moves air through the system efficiently and quietly.

7. Air Filter

Cleans outdoor air of small particles before they circulate through your home.

8. Electronic Circuit Board

Adjusts air circulation modes and motor speeds

9. Damper Defrost

Helps prevent frost from forming within the system, eliminating the need for a supplemental energy -consuming electric defroster. This defroster engages when temperatures drop below 23 degrees Fahrenheit.

10. Briefcase-style Exterior Latches

Allow easy filter changes with no tools required.

11. Simple Wall Control

Makes operating the HRV easy and convenient.
