Comparing the AirCycler g2 and HRV [Infographic]

AirCycler is excited to share that we have recently launched a new version of our Annual Ventilation Cost Calculator. Now, in addition to comparing the estimated annual energy cost of operating different AirCycler systems, you can also compare the estimated costs of operating an HRV or ERV (stand-alone and tied to the furnace).Calculations can be made using basic information about the home or with…See More

The (Small) Cost of Ventilation Without Recovery

It is a common misconception that mechanical ventilation without recovery will cost a homeowner hundreds, if not thousands, of dollars a year in energy costs. If we tighten up a home and then put a 6" hole in the wall and bring in outside air, we must be running the electric bill through the roof. The truth is, we're actually talking tens of dollars - a year - in most cases. Take my home for example: I live in New England in a roughly 2,000 square foot home with oil heat. I got an estimate of…See More

"Thanks for taking the time to address my points.  I will run your calculator and see what it comes up with.  Intermittent ventilation within a set time period like 3 hours can indeed be a reasonable way to bring in fresh air.  I…"

Cameron Millard replied to Carly Maltais's discussion The (Small) Cost of Ventilation Without Recovery
"While bringing in outside air can certainly work, I think there are some very important caveats to consider. Cost isn't the only reason mechanical ventilation with recovery is superior.  In newer, very tight homes, the increase in positive…"

"Yes, using this tool we're learning a lot about how affordable it can be to ventilate in cold northern climates like Maine, Minnesota, even Alaska, with non-recovery methods. "

We spoke to a lot of people at RESNET 2015 about balanced ventilation so we wanted to share here how it can be achieved with the AirCycler g2-k. Just set the EXH setting to SLave mode. It’s pretty simple –Using the AirCycler g2 in CALCULATED TIME SETUP:Navigate to the setting for Minutes of Exhaust Fan Required*Press the DOWN arrow until the countdown reaches 0, then press DOWN again to get to SL. SL = Slave ModeIn Slave Mode, the exhaust fan runs any time the central fan is running with the…See More
