Fantech SHR 1504 - Heat Recovery Ventilator (4 Ports, 50 to 149 CFM @ 0.4" WG, 3 Speed)
Fantech HRV Product Overview:
Heat Recovery Ventilators (HRVs) are recommended for colder areas of the country that have longer heating seasons as well as drier desert areas of the South. Heat Recovery Ventilators are complete whole house ventilation systems that incorporate a supply motor and an exhaust motor in one unit. The supply motor draws fresh air in from the outside and the exhaust motor pushes stale contaminated air out. The two air steams are separated by a heat recovery core which tempers the air making it the most comfortable solution for a healthy indoor environment.
So How Do They Work?
An HRV is designed to bring a continuous supply of fresh air into a home while exhausting an equal amount of contaminated air. HRVs use what is called a “sensible” heat recovery core. This special aluminum core transfers heat from the exhaust air stream to the incoming air stream. Fresh incoming air is tempered by the heat that is transferred from the outgoing air so you save on energy costs. Fantech HRVs are equipped with automatic defrost mechanisms so even if you live in the coldest climates you can use your HRV all year long.
Having said that, it's easy to see that Fantech's Heat Recovery Ventilators truly are the next step in creating a clean, healthy environment for your family. Now, let's find out more about the technical specifications about the unit.
