Single unit maintains environment in apartments

Published:  19 March, 2005

Treatment system
Designed for apartments, this unit from Diffusion Air Treatment provides ventilation with heat recovery, air filtration, heating and cooling.

An integrated unit for dwellings to provide heating, cooling and ventilation has been developed by Diffusion Air Treatment. The Lifebreath IVS (Integrated Vertical Stack) provides fresh-air ventilation with energy recovery. It uses heat from the DHW source and can recover up to 86% of heating energy that is normally lost to atmosphere.

The system extracts air from the space and introduces clean, fresh, filtered air which is warmed before being distributed.

There is no need to open windows to provide ventilation, and the settling of household dust is reduced.

The system can incorporate a reverse-cycle heat pump to provide both heating and cooling.
