Venmar Ventilation Air Exchanger
Home Ventilator Systems
Air Exchanger, Heat Recovery Ventilation
Energy Recovery Ventilation (ERV) Systems
For the past two decades mounting evidence suggests that dependence
on the natural exchange of air between the indoors and outdoors through
air infiltration and exfiltration may not be sufficient for good moisture
control and indoor air quality. It also has become increasingly obvious
that traditional ventilation methods, like opening a window or use of
a common bath fan, are not providing adequate ventilation. A properly
designed and installed ventilation system is the key to positive moisture
control and will help ensure a healthy indoor environment for the occupant.
The solution is an air exchanger, heat recovery ventilator (HRV) or
energy recovery ventilator (ERV). These mechanical ventilation systems
use fans to maintain a low-velocity flow of fresh outdoor air into the
house (incoming air stream) while exhausting out an equal amount of stale
indoor air (exhaust air stream). Fresh air is supplied to all levels
of the house while stale air is removed from areas with high levels of
pollutants and moisture.
Installing a Home Ventilation System
Air exchangers, HRV and ERV ventilation air exchange systems can be
installed in an existing home, as well as a new home, and is an integral
part of the heating and air conditioning system. Air exchange ventilation
systems can be utilized with any forced air system equipped with a blower
and duct system. They can also be used with non-forced air systems (floor
heat coils, for instance) as an independent system. For more information
about how an air exchange works, click
General Design Considerations for an Air Exchange, ERV or HRV Ventilation
The following tips are suggested to improve performance:
- Locate the fresh air intake away from driveways and laundry and furnace
- Install a supply inlet (dedicated inlet or heating register, if connected
to forced air) for each bedroom and one for each common area.
- Install a return outlet in each high moisture area such as the kitchen,
utility room and bathroom.
- Return outlets (pick up points) should be within one foot of ceiling
and ten feet away from an oven or cooktop, as vaporized grease could
clog the energy recovery core.
- Keep duct runs as short and straight as possible.
- Use smooth, round ductwork when possible.
- Insulate intake/exhaust and any ventilation ducts in unheated spaces
and seal all joints.
- Install a drain to catch any condensate, if required.

Get the Ultimate
in Clean Air for Your Home
Combine an Air
Oasis Induct Air Purifier with a Venmar Ventilation System (or any HVAC system)
and get the ultimate in pure air in your home.
The Venmar Air Exchange System is fabulous for recovering
heat or energy, providing fresh air, controlling humidity and removing particulate
(dust, pollen, dander, etc.), but by adding the powerful broad-spectrum pollution
purification abilities of an Air Oasis
HVAC Induct Air Purifier, you get the ultimate in whole-house clean air.
Air Oasis air purifiers destroy bacteria, viruses, pesticides, herbicides,
mold spores, chemical fumes and gases, VOCs, odors and more from your ductwork
and every room served by a vent.
The ONLY Induct Air Purifier with Rotational UV Shield Technology
Since UV lamps were first used in HVAC systems there has been one constant
complaint from HVAC engineers and contractors. UV light can degrade many of
the rubbers and plastics used within an HVAC system causing premature system
failure. Air Oasis has created the perfect solution. With the development of
their proprietary Rotational UV Shield you can control how little or how much
UV light is emitted from the unit, while allowing for a constant stream of
air to pass through the AHPCO Cell for treatment. The Rotational UV Shield
can be rotated 360 degrees exposing more or less of the UVC lamp. (Click
here to read why most induct UV lamps are not as effective as claimed).
The residential and business HVAC (heating, ventilation
and air conditioning) induct models are designed for use with forced-air
heating and central air conditioning systems (HVAC) to purify the air in all
rooms served by ductwork in small to large single-family homes and office buildings.
Turn your central heating and cooling system into an air-cleaning machine
to significantly reduce pollutants and contaminants in your entire home or
business. For more information, see the Air
Oasis Air Purifiers.
