Fresh Air Ventilation Systems
The Fresh Air Ventilation System is an intelligent, automatic, year-round ventilation system that integrates with an existing HVAC system and thermostat to meet ASHRAE 62.2 requirements.
Our Fresh Air Ventilation System (FAV) features a Fresh Air Damper (FAD) that works automatically with the Fresh Air Ventilation Control (FAVC) to efficiently and effectively distribute air throughout the house.Features:
- Fresh Air Ventilation Control (FAVC) utilizes the central fan to supply outdoor air from a known source through a controlled duct
- Fresh Air Damper (FAD) prevents infiltration during off periods
How It Works
- Delivers fresh air automatically, year round
- Creates uniform temperature and humidity in home
- Reduces heating and cooling costs
- Enhances effectiveness of media air cleaner and UV air purifiers
The Fresh Air Ventilation System (FAV) is a motor driven damper activated by the Fresh Air Ventilation Control (FAVC). When there is a call for fresh air, the control opens the damper allowing fresh air to enter the HVAC return. When the control is satisfied, the damper is closed.Exclusive Fresh Air Ventilation Control (FVAC) Features:
Exclusive Fresh Air Damper (FAD) Features:
- Appliance Ventilation Credit
- Indoor Temperature/Humidity Monitoring
- Plenum Protection & Winter Dehumidification
- 30 Minute Cycle Period
Why A Fresh Air System?
- Quiet positive-seal with Neoprene Seal
- Motorized Power Open, Power Close
- Most reliable motor on the market
- Remains closed when fresh air is not needed
Our Fresh Air Vemtilation Systems are a type of Central Fan Integrated (CFI) Ventilation. CFI Ventilation is better than Exhaust Ventilation like a bathroom fan and more economical than a Balanced Ventilation system like an HRV or ERV system. The Exhaust Ventilations systems are easy to install, have low energy use, but they draw in air from uncontrolled sources and can create negative pressure. HRVs or ERVs capture a nominal amount of energy in the exhaust air, which helps on energy cost, but they are expensive to install and maintain.
Plus, CFI systems are more effective than a bath fan. Bath fans can quickly create negative pressure in the bathroom and ultimately become ineffective, not exhausting the air. The replacement air with a bath fan typically enters from poor air quality sources such as the garage, attic, or basement where automobile fumes, radon gas, and other household chemicals may enter.
Our unique Fresh Air Ventilation Systems automatically and efficiently bring in fresh outdoor air to provide optimal supply ventilation, help manage humidity, and enhance the performance of media air cleaners a UV air purifiers.
