Increased ventilation is critical for fighting airborne pathogens. Cognizant authorities agree that a primary transmission route for COVID-19 and RSV is through the air. Therefore, increased ventilation is key for removing airborne virus particles and stopping the spread of diseases. This is true for homes and buildings of every size, and in every climate. For more information, read RenewAire’s white paper: Mitigate COVID-19 Transmission via Increased Building Ventilation.
RenewAire EV Series Premium is the best choice for homes: As a residential Energy Recovery Ventilator (ERV) certified for commercial-grade applications, the RenewAire EV Series Premium is the optimal choice for cleaner and healthier air inside homes. It replaces equal parts of stale indoor air with fresh and filtered outdoor air, all while optimizing energy efficiency. This is because RenewAire ERVs use otherwise-wasted total energy from the exhaust airstream to condition incoming outdoor air. This enhances IAQ and energy savings.
Innovative and efficient functionality:
The EV Series Premium ERV has numerous features and benefits:
• Ideal for single- and multi-families, and light-commercial buildings
• High-efficiency EC-motor fans meeting California codes
• Dial-A-Flow controller for maximum comfort
• Boost-mode with MERV 13 filters as an accessory
• Available for simple installation
Fresh, filtered outdoor air, the ERV creates cleaner and healthier indoor air. Such balanced ventilation realizes the highest-quality indoor air possible.
Assist in mitigating the spread of COVID-19: Due to the ERV’s ability to effectively remove stale indoor air, virus aerosols are exhausted out. This helps to safeguard indoor spaces against the spread of COVID-19.
Maximize energy efficiency, sustainability, cost savings: By offering energy recovery, the ERV minimizes energy use. Energy efficiency is optimized and operation costs are reduced.
Simple to install, operate, maintain: This ERV is the easiest ventilation option to install, operate and maintain. Once the short duct connections are made, just plug it in, press a button and periodically change the filters. It’s the simplest and most cost-effective way to enhance IAQ.
Comfortable indoor environment: Because the ERV is so easy to use, maintaining a comfortable indoor environment is a breeze. If more ventilation is needed, boost mode can be activated.
Controlled ventilation: Comprehensive controlled ventilation via the ERV is the most effective way to reduce harmful indoor air contaminants, such as PM2.5 and other internally generated contaminants. Uncontrolled exhaust-fan ventilation falls short.
Builder and Contractor Benefits:
As new energy-efficient homes get tighter to seal weather out, they seal in contaminants, causing deficient indoor air quality (IAQ). Since people spend on average, 90% of their time indoors, and indoor air can be two to five times—and up to 100 times—more polluted than outdoor air, indoor air quality has very real impacts on health and cognitive function.
Increased and balanced ventilation is the premiere strategy to enhancing and improving indoor air quality. With enough outdoor air coming in to replace the stale indoor air via balanced ventilation, IAQ is enhanced. The only downside is that it can increase energy use. However, RenewAire’s EV Premium Series ERVs can provide increased ventilation without increasing energy use because our systems reuse otherwise-wasted energy.
Ideal for single- and multi-family structures, as well as light-commercial buildings, the EV Series Premium ERVs incorporate high-efficiency EC motor fans to meet strict California energy codes. These ERVs also include a new Dial-A-Flow controller that allows users to set airflow for maximizing comfort. In addition, these ERVs have boost-mode capabilities with MERV 13 filters as an accessory to further enhance IAQ.
Helps to safeguard homes against airborne pathogens: Because increased ventilation is an effective disease mitigation strategy, installation of the ERV can help to create healthier environments. This enables builders to offer peace of mind.
Simple and inexpensive installation: The ERV is available for simple plug-in with nominal ductwork, meaning installation ease can’t be beat. This saves the builder all kinds of time and additional installation costs, making the job faster and easier. These significant savings can be passed onto the homeowner.
Most cost-effective ventilation option: It’s assumed that exhaust fans are the cheapest ventilation option, but this isn’t true. When total installation costs of exhaust fans are considered, the ERV is more cost-effective. That’s because it’s available for simple plug-in, and only short runs of one exhaust duct and one fresh-air duct are needed. The only costs are the unit plus minimal ductwork. However, with exhaust fans there are many costs: purchasing multiple fans, hiring a contractor for complex ductwork and hiring an electrician to figure out all the wiring. When looking at total installation costs, the ERV is the best option. Plus, you get all of its advanced features, resulting in enhanced IAQ and major energy savings.
