How do Ventilations systems work?
Ventilation systems move air between the ceiling space and living areas and can reduce condensation; a ventilation system alone does not heat or cool your home. It can, however, be very helpful in circulating fresh, healthy air introduced by a heat pump. Find out more information about the Lossnay and Zephyr ventilation systems.
Most air ventilation systems simply move air of different temperatures around within your home. Not only does the air remain stale and lack oxygen, often, these systems also remove the very air you've just heated. Not exactly great for the environment or your energy bill!
Lossnay is the fresher way.
The new Lossnay technology is the latest in home ventilation from Mitsubishi Electric. Meaning 'no loss' in Japanese, Lossnay removes the stale dirty air from inside your house to get rid of damp, odours, dust, bacteria and gases. This air is then replaced with fresh air from outside - not recycled from the attic.
But where Lossnay gets really clever is with its environmentally friendly 'Energy Recovery' system. Put simply, energy within the stale air can be recovered and used to pre-heat or pre-cool the fresh air being vented in. So it warms the fresh air in winter, and cools it in summer.
How does a Lossnay Ventilator work?
The Lossnay Energy Recovery Ventilator by Mitsubishi Electric uses the air normally wasted by common ventilation systems, to pre-heat or pre-cool the in-coming fresh air.
The material used to transfer the energy is made from specially treated paper that is laid in opposing directions.
Return Air (RA) is the stale air that can carry unhealthy levels of CO2 (a common problem in air tight buildings), but this air contains energy which should not be wasted. That's why it is recovered and the air is then exhausted (EA) to be expelled outside along with odours, dampness, bacteria and sometimes-foreign gases.
Next, Outdoor Air (OA) is introduced from outside to provide the freshest, cleanest air available. It is filtered, then passed through the Lossnay core - which allows it be pre-heated in winter (or pre-cooled in summer) using the energy from the Return Air. The fresh, clean Supply Air (SA) is then brought inside your home.
