Venmar launches the Kubix Air Exchanger
Venmar Ventilation Inc. Launches Ultra-Compact KubixTM Heat-Recovery Ventilators – the Quietest Available on the Market
Drummondville, April 26, 2011 – Today Venmar Ventilation proves that the old saying, “good things come in small packages,” holds true for its new Kubix™ heat- and energy-recovery ventilators (HRVs and ERVs). Kubix is an innovative and cost-effective family of ventilators specifically designed for condominiums and other small homes up to about 1,000 square feet (or more, depending on local building codes).
“Installing an air exchanger is often a challenge in a condominium or town house. With its cube shape of less than sixteen inches (40 cm) on each side, or the equivalent of a small suitcase, the Kubix can be easily concealed in a closet or above a hot water tank to save valuable space”, says Pat Henaire, Vice-President of Marketing.
In addition, the four-inch (10 cm) diameter intake and exhaust ports allow builders to use smaller, less costly installation materials. The Kubix may be small, but it also offers the most consistent ventilation performance across a wide range of static pressures.
But the innovation does not stop there. Often in small residences, the HRV or ERV is installed in the living space and not in a basement, so Venmar developed a surprisingly quiet blower, designed to be the quietest in its category available on the market. Kubix: perfection in a cube!
HRVs and ERVs are widely recognized for improving indoor air quality and their benefits for the occupants and the building structure. As a result, in many regions these systems are now required by code in new home construction.
The Venmar AVS Kubix family comes in five models, including ERV as well as HRV cores, to cover most construction requirements. Four of the models are ENERGY STAR® qualified and also meet NovoclimatTM program requirements in Quebec. The Kubix is available today from HVAC specialists across North America.
