More About How Thermowheel
Energy Recovery Works
Thermowheel is extremely effective in transferring total energy (heat and moisture, up to 90%) – between two airstreams.
Reduces Heating and Cooling Tonnage 33%
IN SUMMER … Ouside air is hot and humid – inside air is cool and dry. Thermowheel rotates through the opposing airstreams and transfers energy contained in
return air to the supply air, making it cooler and dryer. The cooled, dry air is now the supply air that enters the cooling coils – and lowers the need for cooling capacity.
IN WINTER … The opposite occurs. Outside air is cold and dry – inside air is warm and somewhat humid. The wheel transfers energy in the return air to the supply air, making it warm and wetter, reducing need for heating capacity.
In both cases, Thermowheel Energy Recovery Ventilation enhances indoor air quality (IAQ), while dramatically lowering energy costs.
Thermowheel’s special dessicant coating on the wheel, and it’s rugged construction assures optimum energy recovery and low maintenance operation for minimum 25 years.
