Residential Ventilation: 3 Simple and Effective Solutions
Yes, they exist!
With homes built tighter than ever the importance of ventilation, and the best way to achieve it, is top of mind for building performance professionals. The ideal ventilation system is easy to install, effective, and simple enough for the average homeowner to use.
AirCycler can help you meet ventilation requirements with these simple set-it and forget-it products:
SmartExhaust Switch – Exhaust-only
Using two simple programmable dials – Ventilation and Delay – the SmartExhaust can be set to run an exhaust fan anywhere from 0-60 minutes per hour, automatically. The Delay dial will set the fan to run after the switch has been turned off. The SmartExhaust is wired to the fan and light so any time the occupant switches the light on, the fan turns on too. This means that humidity, chemicals and odors are addressed automatically. If you want the simplest solution for meeting ventilation requirements, the SmartExhaust is it.
AirCycler g2 Controller – Hybrid (Supply + Exhaust)
The AirCycler g2 is one of the most efficient whole house systems available and is the only hybrid system on the market. Using the home’s already existing heating and cooling system, the AirCycler g2 watches the thermostat and brings fresh air in through the existing ductwork during normal conditioning calls. If at the end of the hour there hasn’t been enough fresh air introduced to meet requirements, the g2 will open the fresh air damper and turn on an exhaust fan to complete the ventilation cycle. Designed for efficiency, the g2 uses every day activity to meet ventilation requirements.
AirCycler g1 Controller – Supply-only
The AirCycler g1 is a supply-only whole house solution. The g1 will watch the thermostat for heating and cooling calls and bring fresh air in through the existing ductwork at the same time. If at the end of the hour there hasn’t been enough fresh air introduced to meet requirements, the g1 will open the fresh air damper and bring on the air handler to complete the ventilation cycle. If hybrid isn’t something you need, the g1 gets it done.
