Recovery ventilators are notoriously hard to fit into a utility room due to their size, even though it would often seem to make a lot of sense to do so as all the ductwork necessary is usually already in place. Enter the Venmar K series. Designed from the ground up to be both quiet and small, K series recovery ventilators fit perfectly into a niche of space right above a hot water heater or horizontal furnace. An advanced blower design brings operation noise level down, making the K series recovery ventilators perfect for small homes or condominiums.
Polypropylene Heat Exchanger Core
The polypropylene heat exchanger core in Venmar HRVs brings fresh air into your home from the outdoors, pre-conditioning it with the heat energy in the stale air it expels from your home. The end result is a home that is both efficient and well ventilated, keeping you and your family feeling fresh.
Expels Excess Moisture
In colder climates, where HRVs are ideally suited, an HRV will also function as a dehumidifier. Excess moisture in your home's air is vented to the outdoors, keeping basements dry and potential mold and mildew growth to a minimum.
Recirculation Defrost Cycle
Venmar S series units occasionally need to defrost their internal core due to condensation buildup on the heat exchanger surfaces. A separate operation mode is included for this purpose which circulates warm air from your home throughout the unit, melting any frozen condensate in the process.
Equalizes Indoor and Outdoor Pressure
A less well known side effect of a well insulated home is unequal air pressure inside and outside of your home. Both negative and positive air pressure have negative consequences and can lead to increased energy costs and mold growth. Venmar's recovery ventilators solve this problem as well, allowing the air inside your home to exchange naturally with the outside air, easily balancing the pressure difference.
The K series of energy recovery ventilators from Venmar is the perfect shape to tuck into a nook or cranny in your utility room, leaving space for a hot water tank or horizontal furnace below it.
