Airxchange, Inc., a leading manufacturer of rotary energy recovery ventilation (ERV) components, earned a gold award for its innovative replacement wheel design in the 2017 Dealer Design Awards by ACHR News.
ERV is a proven and effective technology for minimizing indoor humidity concerns, energy costs and peak design loads. The technology has been utilized commercially for more than 40 years and has gained increased acceptance during the past 15 years with the formation of an industry performance certification program and the inclusion of ERV technology in national energy standards.
To facilitate the restoration of aging energy recovery wheels, Airxchange developed its award-winning design to overcome historical obstacles preventing easy restoration or replacement.
“When energy recovery wheels become damaged or too dirty to allow air to pass, the energy savings that were assumed in the HVAC system design are lost,” said Christopher Glover, director of Aftermarket Sales at Airxchange. “Our replacement wheels are designed to easily replace aging energy recovery wheels from any manufacturer, recapturing savings and eliminating the need to replace the entire HVAC or ERV system.”
In sizes ranging from 25-to-156 inches in diameter, Airxchange wheels are packaged in sub-assemblies that are light and small enough to fit through standard doors, hatches and stairwells, all without the need for expensive material handling equipment.

ACHR News awards gold, silver and bronze awards in 13 categories ranging from ventilation products to commercial controls, and highlights the best HVAC equipment available. Judging is based on ease of installation and use, maintenance, application/repair, reliability and competitive difference.
