Hybrid Ventilation Unit Provides Dilution Solution
The ASHRAE Position Document on Airborne Infectious Diseases states: “Airborne infectious disease transmission can be reduced using dilution ventilation, specific in-room flow regimens, room pressure differentials, personalized and source capture ventilation, filtration, and ultraviolet germicidal irradiation. According to Thomas & Betts, the Reznor Z Series hybrid ventilation unit is the next step in the evolution of the ever-changing standards of acceptable levels of indoor air quality with:
- The first and only integration of an energy recovery wheel into a dedicated heat pump system for precise ventilation and temperature control.
- Advanced energy recovery technology that can recover more than 80 percent of the exhaust air energy year-round.
- An energy efficiency ratio of greater than 17 in cooling mode, whereas in heating mode, the coefficient of performance is greater than 10.
