Fresh Air Ventilation Control

The FAVC (Fresh Air Ventilation Control) intelligently manages the central fan to provide fresh air ventilation all year long while meeting the ASHRAE 62.2 2016 standard for ventilation.
Why Do You Need A Fresh Air Ventilation Control?

Homes built today are more energy efficient with better insulation and more tightly sealed. As a result, homes trap stale, unhealthy air inside. The ASHRAE 62.2 fresh air ventilation standard was established to ensure adequate air changes and improve indoor air quality. Exhaust-only fans like those in bathrooms and kitchens can create negative pressure and do supply fresh air into the dwelling. Fresh air must come from outdoors. A control manages fresh outdoor air intake and stale indoor air exhaust to provide whole-dwelling ventilation to satisfy ASHRAE 62.2 standard.

Why The Field Controls FAVC?

The Field Controls FAVC (Fresh Air Ventilation Control) is designed to meet the requirements of ASHRAE 62.2 2016 standard for ventilation by delivering fresh air ventilation all year long while conserving energy and providing homeowner comfort.

How It Works

The FAVC continuously monitors indoor relative humidity and outside temperature and uses the fresh air duct to regulate humidity in the winter months and to prevent humid conditions in summer months. In addition to preventing mold, the FAVC will prevent condensation and corrosion of the heat exchanger.

Comes Pre-Set Or Is Customizable

The FAVC comes pre-set from the factory but it can be set to monitor and control up to four appliances (dampers, ERV/HRV, HVAC central blower and various exhaust fans) to evenly balance fresh air ventilation with in the home.

Two Operation Modes

The FAVC has two modes of operation: Standard and Economy. In Standard mode, the FAVC works in conjunction with a forced air HVAC fan system. In Economy mode, the FAVC works independent of the forced air HVAC fan system.
