Seven percent of the coal, oil and natural gas burned in the U.S. are used to heat, cool and ventilate commercial buildings. Sadly, nearly all commercial heating and cooling systems are combined with ventilation (HVAC), but these systems are inefficient, costly to maintain and contribute to much of the unclean air we breathe.
We think energy efficiency is of paramount importance. Carbon dioxide from burning fossil fuels is a leading contributor to global warming and that’s not okay with us. At Ventacity Systems, we’re working toward a cleaner, more efficient solution to your heating and cooling needs.
People need fresh, clean air. Not just outside, but inside where they live and work. Ventacity produces dedicated outdoor air systems with heat recovery (HRVs) – the most efficient way to keep a building, and the people in it, healthy and comfortable.
By separating ventilation and applying heat recovery technology along with heat pumps, HVAC energy use can be reduced by as much as 50%. If fully deployed, commercial heat recovery systems could reduce US carbon dioxide emissions by 220 million metric tons each year. That’s the same global warming impact as removing 19% (49 million) of US passenger cars from the road.
Our flagship VS 1000 RT is an intelligent dedicated outdoor air system that combines ventilation with high efficiency heat recovery. Suitable for offices, schools, restaurants, multi-family and assembly spaces, it is ruggedly engineered for commercial rooftop application and provides up to 1000 cfm of fresh outside air indoors.
Fresh air when and where you live and work
Harmful elements diluted or exhausted
Moisture mitigation discourages mold growth
Even temperatures without drafts
Fresh indoor environment
Reduces cooling load
Recovers up to 93% of exhaust heat
Efficient air movement
Extremely low fan energy
Prevents over ventilating
Unlike the traditional approach to heating, cooling and ventilating commercial buildings with a combined HVAC system, Ventacity Systems decouple ventilation from heating and cooling. Utilizing high performance heat exchangers and leading edge fan technology, our split ventilation+heating/air conditioning systems recover up to 33 times the energy used to run the system*.
Intelligent controls—when connected to carbon dioxide, temperature, humidity, VOC and occupancy sensors—optimize ventilation, providing just the right amount of fresh air when and where needed for maximum health and comfort.
