Coolerado Launches Energy Recovery Ventilator

September 10, 2014 By Karen Henry

coolerado-energy-manageCoolerado has introduced its new Energy Recovery Ventilator (ERV), which supplies ASHRAE Standard 62.1 ventilation rates while reducing energy consumption. It can be installed separately or in series with a roof top unit.

The ERV has a summer enthalpy recovery effectiveness ranging from 70 percent to over 200 percent at full flow. The company’s HMX technology allows the unit to supply fresh air at 65 degrees Fahrenheit, even in the hottest weather and significant dehumidification in humid weather. During the winter months, the unit pre-heats fresh air as a conventional HRV. The unit has a winter heat recovery effectiveness of 70 percent at full flow.

Regardless of season, the exhaust air and the outdoor air never mix within the ERV because the HMX uses different channels for both airflows.
