Panasonic Intelli-Balance ERV FV-10VEC1
Intelli-Balance™ 100 is ideal for single family homes and multi-family units. It is a customizable, high performance, high efficiency Energy Recovery Ventilator (ERV) that’s designed to help you meet ASHRAE 62.2 requirements. This unique and cost effective Cold Climate ERV was engineered for total versatility and installation flexibility, in a cold climate zone.
FV-10VEC1 is recommended for areas where temperatures are -22°F (-30°C). When the outdoor temperature is < -22°F (-30°C), the defrost cycle is initiated and the product will stop operating for 47 minutes, then operate in heat exchange mode for 4 minutes in order to sample the outdoor temperature. It then operates in circulation mode for 9 minutes in order to defrost (exhaust and supply air are 50 CFM). Defrost cycle overrides the ASHRAE 62.2 timing function.
COST EFFECTIVE, CODE COMPLIANT ERV FOR ANY CLIMATE ZONE
Intelli-Balance™ 100 is a customizable, high performance, high efficiency Energy Recovery Ventilator (ERV) that’s designed to help you meet ASHRAE 62.2 requirements. This unique and cost effective ERV was engineered for total versatility and installation flexibility, in any climate zone. Built-in controls minimize the time it takes to determine desired airflow, as well as verify and maintain performance. Intelli-Balance 100 allows you to simply design and specify your ventilation system requirements, improve IAQ and reduce ventilation costs.
Tightly built homes and buildings utilizing exhaust only fans can create negative pressure. Intelli-Balance 100 solves this by supplying air to replace exhausted air, helping to balance air pressure within the home.
Panasonic Intelli-Balance 100 ERV uses four integrated dual 4” or 6” round duct adaptors – two to exhaust stale air and two to supply fresh air from outdoors. Its low, continuous run ensures volatile organic compounds (VOC’s) are vented out and replaced with fresh air.
Intelli-Balance 100 can be ceiling or on-wall mounted, does not require connection to the Central HVAC or the addition of a condensation line. This allows it to be installed in many places throughout the home to meet IAQ, health and comfort needs.
PICK-A-FLOW™ SPEED TECHNOLOGY
Intelli-Balance 100 includes a built-in Pick-A-Flow™ speed selector that provides the unique ability to select your required supply (50-60-70-80-90-100 CFM) and exhaust airflow (50-60-70-80-90-100 CFM), with the simple turn of a dial. This truly customizable airflow capability allows you to create balanced, positive or negative pressure within the home.
ASHRAE 62.2 TIMING FUNCTION
The adjustable Minutes Per Hour (Min/Hr) timer allows the user to set the number of minutes per hour the ERV should run. This ensures consistent and controlled ventilation throughout the day for compliance with ASHRAE 62.2. Factory default setting is 60 Min/Hr.
FILTERS & MAINTENANCE
Intelli-Balance 100 has two filters that clean the exhaust and supply air before passing through the ERV core, extending the life of the core. A hinged access panel allows for quick and easy product maintenance and filter checks. Convenient light indicator and unobtrusive alarm signal when it’s time to check and clean the filters. Both filters should be vacuumed with a soft brush attachment every 2-3 months, and the exhaust air filter should be replaced every 6 months to maintain the ERV’s peak performance.
WHOLE HOUSE ERV
Intelli-Balance 100 is a ceiling or wall mount Energy Recovery Ventilator (ERV) that’s ideal for meeting whole house ventilation requirements under ASHRAE 62.2. Intelli- Balance 100 is also an ideal choice when partnered with mini-splits or VRF Heat Pumps for fresh, balanced air with energy recovery which makes it a very affordable, cost-effective IAQ solution.
Ideal for: Single Family Homes (~2,000 Sq ft) / Condominiums / Apartments / Housing Authority Properties / Hotels / Studio apartments
ASHRAE 62.2 2010 AND 2013 STANDARD
The American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE) set a standard for whole house ventilation, requiring that continuous mechanical ventilation be 7.5 CFM per bedroom (master bedroom X 2) plus 1 CFM per 100 square feet, with sone not to exceed 1.0. ASHRAE 62.2-2013 requires a ventilation rate of 7.5 CFM per person plus 3 CFM per 100 square feet. Please check with your local code to determine which ventilation standard you should follow. Panasonic Intelli-Balance 100 ERV is an affordable, efficient way to meet the ASHRAE 62.2 standard.
