PORTLAND, Ore., January 30, 2017 – Portland, Ore.-based Ventacity Systems introduces its VS3000 RT heat recovery ventilation (HRV) system, providing a higher-capacity 3,000 cfm maximum flow rate to fulfill indoor air quality (IAQ) requirements in commercial buildings of up to 40,000 square feet . The new VS3000 RT HRV additionally features pre- and post-heater elements, which allow for operation in colder conditions without compromising the unit’s heat exchanger core.

With the expansion of our line of smart ventilation management systems into a higher capacity unit, we are able to cast a wider net in the commercial building market to meet increasing demand for ultra-efficient, intelligent on-demand IAQ solutions, said Sal D’Auria, president and CEO of Ventacity Systems. Adding the VS3000 RT to our growing family of products allows us to address the most common sizes of commercial buildings such as offices, retail, schools, public spaces and even multifamily
residential.

Incorporating numerous aspects of Ventacity’s flagship VS1000 RT, the new VS3000 RT features a counterflow aluminum heat exchanger that provides up to 93-percent heat recovery. It additionally includes a programmable controller brain can adjust ventilation rates and core bypass volume based on building conditions such as CO2, VOC and occupancy levels, to supply the exact volume of required fresh air at the precise temperature, thus optimizing both IAQ and energy consumption. The VS3000 RT can be specified with the company’s Smart Building Gateway and Smart Ventilation Cloud Services, which add BACnet, remote management and a smart analytic engine that makes predictions and recommendations for optimizing performance.

The new VS3000 RT expands on Ventacity’s flagship VS1000 RT HRV product, which provides up to 1000 cfm of fresh air intake, and 93-percent heat recovery efficiency. Available with the company’s Smart Building Gateway, the VS1000 RT HRV additionally features a pre-heater, variable bypass, two-axis duct porting, and internal air pressure and temperature sensors.
