The YORK® MAXA-MI$ER® Energy Recovery Ventilator (ERV) reduces the cost of heating and cooling a building by using exhaust air to condition incoming outdoor air. The MAXA-MI$ER® ERV uses an enthalpy wheel containing silica gel desiccant to absorb heat from the building’s exhaust air. The wheel then turns and releases the absorbed energy into the intake air. This process warms the intake air in the winter and cools it in the summer, reducing the load and the associated energy costs.
- Increased Comfort — As buildings begin using more outdoor air to improve indoor air quality (IAQ), ERVs become economically attractive for helping control heating, cooling and humidity levels in the conditioned space. By tempering the intake air temperature and humidity to levels closer to those of the indoor air, the ERV helps make IAQ more consistent with fewer fluctuations for the HVAC system to react to, thus the cost of frequent air exchanges is greatly reduced.
- Maximum Efficiency — The YORK® MAXA-MI$ER® ERV directly mounts to the packaged air conditioning system for optimum operation and performance. The ERV reduces cooling and heating loads by eliminating the cost of additional ductwork and dampers associated with IAQ applications. An exclusive balancing damper makes the proper mix of exhaust and intake air simple to set.
- True Economizer Operation — Under proper conditions economizers offer significant savings by using cool outside air to condition a building without running the compressor(s). Most ERV systems offer limited economizer operation. But with the YORK® MAXA-MI$ER® ERV system economizer operation is not hampered as the ERV wheel is removed from the airsteam for full, economical economizer operation.
