INTRODUCTION
The ERVCCLHA
Energy
Recovery
Ventilator
is used to exchange
indoor stale air with outside fresh air. The unit is equipped with a
special energy recovery
core which transfers
both sensible and
latent heat between the fresh incoming
air. The cross-flow
design
core allows entering and leaving air streams to transfer heat energy
