When it comes to climate comfort, we immediately think of temperature as the main aspect that describes “feeling good” in a room.
However, since the way buildings are constructed has changed over the last decade, the presence of a fan system with heat recovery has become an essential requirement in order to have the right temperature along with healthy rooms in terms of humidity and air quality.
Initially, the market for CMV systems (which stands for Controlled Mechanical Ventilation) grew not so much as a “proactive” approach to offer greater environmental comfort, but as the necessary solution to avoid disputes between sellers and buyers due to the fact that flats that were actually airtight proved to be energy efficient although damp and unhealthy unless adequately ventilated.
In 2011, Fantini Cosmi introduced its residential CMV system with the Aspirlight (flow rate 210 mc/h) and Aspircomfort (flow rate 390 mc/h) units, which were immediately considered innovative solutions in terms of construction and functional performance. The two units, made of high-density expanded polypropylene (HD EPP) – whose thermo-insulating and sound-absorbing properties combine with exceptional lightness, structural strength, elasticity and recyclability – are a perfect example of industrial ecodesign.
With low-consumption motors with a guaranteed life of more than 70,000 hours, high-efficiency cross-flow heat recovery units, wired and radio frequency controls, easy installation and routine maintenance, Fantini Cosmi CMV units are a leading example of products designed to meet the needs of the entire supply chain: designer, installer and user.
Recently, the performance and usability of the fan system have been further increased by introducing new wireless environmental control accessories: a humidity detector (mod. SRF-H, battery-operated), a carbon dioxide detector (mod. SRF-CO2, 230Vac power supply) and a presence detector (mod. SRF-PIR, battery-operated).
The humidity probe (recommended in the kitchen and bathroom) and the carbon dioxide probe (recommended in the sleeping and living areas) are fitted with LEDs showing the current functional mode and any diagnostic alerts (e.g. filter cleaning warning) and a touch button to switch from automatic to manual mode, to select, if required, a specific ventilation flow rate.
With no wiring and a simple initial pairing and configuration procedure, up to a twenty sensors of the various types available can be easily set up on a single system.
Thanks to this new range of sensors, the ventilation mode automatically adapts to the actual air circulation requirements throughout the day, depending on the context and occupancy index of the rooms, thus reducing the system’s electricity consumption to a minimum.
