The Rave’s desiccant impregnated wheel allows homeowners to
remove moisture in the summer or add humidity in the winter.
CARROLLTON, Texas - In an effort to assist the homeowner in
achieving optimal healthy and comfortable air, RSI Rooftop Systems Inc.,
Carrollton, Texas, has introduced the Rave, a residential energy recovery
ventilation (ERV) unit.
According to the company, not only is it more than 80
percent effective, but it also humidifies or dehumidifies a house at the desire
of the homeowner. The product uses patented wheel technology that rotates
between incoming and outgoing air streams to pump out stale air and pump in
fresh air while capturing up to 80 percent of the energy within the exhaust.
In the winter the Rave pre-heats, and in the summer it
pre-cools, incoming fresh air while removing harmful contaminants such as
chemicals, radon, odors, formaldehyde, viruses, and bacteria that build up
naturally in homes.
The desiccant-impregnated wheel also allows homeowners
to remove moisture in the summer or add humidity in the winter. An advanced
frost-control system ensures the Rave will work efficiently even during subzero
Contractors are able to attach the unit to a new or existing
home’s heating and cooling system. Standard pleated filters, that can remove
airborne particles as small as 5 microns, are housed in channels for easy
access. The Rave is self-monitoring and an indicator on its optional control
panel lights up when a clean filter is required. The optional remote control
looks like a thermostat and mounts to a wall. It allows users to switch the
unit on and off, or place it in economizer mode and adjust wheel speeds.
