VS3000 RT

Energy Efficient Ventilation & Improved Building Health

An ultra-efficient heat recovery ventilator (HRV) and dedicated outdoor air system (DOAS), the VS3000 RT continuously improves building health and indoor air quality, while minimizing building energy usage. Offering up to 3000 cfm of fresh air, the VS3000 RT is a larger capacity version of the original VS1000 RT.

The VS3000 RT is suitable for various commercial applications requiring enhanced ventilation, including retail spaces, restaurants, schools, offices, public areas and even multifamily residential buildings.

Isolating Ventilation From Heating & Cooling

Traditional RTUs combine heating, cooling and ventilation, causing energy efficiency and building health to suffer. Since ventilation is reliant on heating and cooling when air conditioning isn’t on, no fresh air is entering the building. In traditional systems, outdoor air is brought in and mixed directly with indoor air, requiring a high degree of heating and air conditioning to bring it to the desired temperature, sacrificing energy efficiency.

To solve these issues, the VS3000 RT is designed for ventilation. The separation of ventilation from heating and cooling allows it to preserve building health while ensuring energy and operating cost savings.

High-Efficiency Heat Recovery

An aluminum counter flow heat exchanger core allows the VS3000 RT to transfer up to 93% of the heat between intake and exhaust air streams. This is over 43% more efficient than cross flow or enthalpy wheel heat exchangers.

Improving Energy Savings while Reducing Operating Costs

The VS3000 RT’s fans use backward curving fan blades and electronically commutated motors which reduce the power required for ventilation while also minimizing noise. Additional features like heavy insulation, positive sealing doors and the removal of thermal bridges to the exterior of the unit further enhance efficiency. An incorporated variable economizer also eliminates the further expense of installing an add-on. And  unlike  typical economizers,the VS3000 RT’s economizer can be intelligently set to the exact mix of outside and recirculated air that optimizes both indoor air quality and efficiency.

A Durable Commercial Ventilation Solution

With precise construction, including airtight door seals to prevent dust and moisture entry, the VS3000 RT has been built for even the harshest environments. The durable, powder-coated, galvanized steel case extends the system’s lifespan.

Simple Commercial Ventilation Installation & Maintenance

Retrofitting a VS3000 RT is simple. Existing ducting can be routed to ports on the bottom or ends or side of the unit which reduces the need to modify any ductwork. Maintenance is also simplified by easy access to filters.

Intelligent Machine Control

With internal air pressure and temperature sensors along with a sophisticated air pressure controller, the VS3000 RT has built-in intelligence. Sensors outside and within the building can detect levels of CO2, VOCs, relative humidity and occupancy. With the optional Smart Building Gateway and Smart Building Cloud Services add-on, the VS3000 RT offers Smart Ventilation Management.

Enhancing Energy Efficiency & Building Health

The VS3000 RT is capable of detecting current and future conditions to provide just the right amount of fresh air when and where it is needed for maximum health, comfort and energy efficiency. With Smart Ventilation Management, facility managers, building owners and service technicians can have full visibility and control over a building’s energy usage and indoor air quality.

Smart Building Gateway Integration for Smart Ventilation Management

With the optional Smart Building Gateway, the VS3000 RT is capable of detecting current and future conditions to provide just the right amount of fresh air when and where it is needed for maximum health, comfort and energy efficiency. With Smart Ventilation Management, facility managers, building owners and service technicians can have full visibility and control over a building’s energy usage and indoor air quality through a remote dashboard, e-mail reports and maintenance alerts.
