Zehnder America Introduces New US Made HRV/ERV Air Distribution Components

Share Article

Zehnder America starts local sourcing initiative using American manufacturing for its new ComfoFlex ducting and register boxes. As the demand for Zehnder Heat Recovery Ventilator (HRV) and Energy Recovery Ventilator (ERV) Comfosystems has increased significantly in the US market over the past few years, Zehnder will continue to look to locally source additional components in the coming years.

Zehnder New HRV Air Distribution Ducting

Zehnder America is locally sourcing in the United States both its new ComfoFlex ducting and register boxes as part of its comprehensive approach to providing both the HRV or ERV and properly matched air distribution components. When a Heat Recovery Ventilation or Energy Recovery Ventilation system is designed with properly matched system components, it will be quiet and often provide a smoother installation.

According to David Chouvelon,Vice President - Zehnder America, Head of Comfosystems Business Unit, "As we are developing our Comfosystems activity in North America, we are now in a position to implement the first step toward our local sourcing initiative using American manufacturing for our new ComfoFlex ducting and register boxes.” Zehnder's unique approach to design, installation and commissioning support has led to significant increased business over the last few years. Zehnder provides the design work so the HRV or ERV system is designed properly and the commissioning process to ensure the ventilation system functions optimally.

Much evidence points to a range of common issues in purchasing just a Heat Recovery Ventilator or Energy Recovery Ventilator unit without specified air distribution components. When unspecified ducting and air distribution components are pieced together, it's not uncommon for the efficiency of a HRV or ERV to go down significantly due to improper sizing or poor installation. This is the reason Zehnder highly recommends having a complete system designed and then after the system is installed, have it commissioned to ensure the system is working properly.

Importance of a ventilation strategy in a high-performance building:

Today’s buildings have become increasingly tighter and more insulated due to building codes and energy-efficiency awareness. Without proper ventilation, tight, energy-efficient construction risks mold, mildew and indoor air quality issues.

Zehnder’s breakthrough Heat Recovery Ventilator and Energy Recovery Ventilator solutions ensure increasingly energy-efficient homes have a continuous supply of fresh filtered air, a comfortable indoor environment and a reduction of heating and cooling loads in applicable climates. As a result, a comfortable and healthy indoor environment is achieved for the energy-efficient home year-round.
