The challenge of prioritizing IAQ and using high ventilation rates is to cost effectively treat the fresh outdoor air for temperature and humidity. For the past 15 years, Drury Southwest has utilized rotary energy recovery wheels manufactured by Airxchange Inc. in new hotel constructions and HVAC system renovations.
Selling end-users just an energy recovery ventilator (ERV) without realizing the options or wheel’s long-term performance benefits cheats a facility out its full energy-saving potential, which is ironically the premise for energy recovery in the first place.
Properly Matched Components Will Provide a Quiet System and Smoother Installation

Zehnder America announced it is now locally sourcing in the United States both its new ComfoFlex ducting and register boxes as part of its comprehensive approach to providing a heat recovery ventilation (HRV) or energy recovery ventilation (ERV) system with properly matched air distribution components.
An alternative to belt-driven energy recovery ventilators (ERV) is the GreenCube™, an energy recovery ventilator that, except for the air movers, has no moving parts. It is an enthalpy plate energy exchanger that recovers both sensible (heat) and latent (moisture) energies from one airstream and transfers it to another.
