Fantech offers Energy Recovery Ventilators (ERVs) and Heat Recovery Ventilators (HRVs) for use in residential single and multi-family homes, apartment buildings and condominiums. ERVs transfer the heat and moisture from stale exhaust air to preheat/precool incoming fresh air. HRVs transfer the heat from stale exhaust air to preheat incoming fresh air.
An HRV is a simpler system that enables exchange only of sensible heat (energy you can measure with a thermometer) from exhausted indoor air to temper incoming fresh air. This reduces the energy required to bring outside air up to ambient room temperature.
An ERV does a little more than an HRV. This type of system also captures some of the moisture in the air to keep it on the same side of the thermal envelope that it came from. So, in winter, the system transfers the humidity from the air being extracted to the incoming fresh (and dry) air to help keep the ambient humidity level at a comfortable level all times. In summer, the humidity transfer reverses and the humidity in outside air is removed before it is brought into the home. This saves energy by reducing the load on your air conditioning system and/or dehumidifier. A high efficiency of humidity transfer would be around 70% but this value depends on the actual humidity on either side of the envelope.

FIT 120E® Fresh Air Appliance
With a profile of only 8.75″ high, the FIT® 120E is ideally suited for condos and apartments that have no mechanical room and where it must be located over a false ceiling. The FIT® 120E brings a continuous supply of fresh air into a home while exhausting an equal amount of contaminated air. The energy recovery core at the center of the unit transfers heat and moisture from the incoming air to the outgoing air that was cooled and dried by the building’s air conditioner.
ECO-Touch® IAQ Program Wall Control
The ECO-Touch IAQ is a multi-function controller with a Volatile Organic Compound (VOC) sensor that allows your Fresh Air Appliance to operate around your home’s needs.
- Recognizes presence of cleaning solvents, cooking odors, or CO2
- Increases appliance’s airflow capacity based on the total VOC levels
- Helps the appliance replaces contaminated air with fresh air
- Can be customized based on user preferences
