Reduces Heating and Cooling Tonnage by 33%
IN SUMMER … The outside air is hot and humid – the inside air is cool and dry. Thermowheel rotates through the opposing airstreams and transfers energy contained in Thermowheel optimizing heat and moisture exchange – recovering exhaust air energy (up to 90%) to precondition outdoor supply air.
IN WINTER … The opposite occurs. The outside air is cold and dry – the inside air is warm and somewhat humid. The wheel transfers energy in the return air to the supply air, making it warm and wetter, reducing the need for heating capacity. Return air to the supply air, making it cooler and dryer. The cooled, dry air is now the supply air that enters the cooling coils – and lowers the need for cooling capacity.
In both cases, Thermowheel Energy Recovery Ventilation enhances indoor air quality (IAQ), while dramatically lowering energy costs.
Thermowheel’s special desiccant coating on the wheel and its rugged construction assures optimum energy recovery and low maintenance operation for a minimum of 25 years.
