DVS EC Reclaim Connect Home Ventilation System

Build tight, ventilate right!

The DVS EC Reclaim Connect is a superior balanced pressure ventilation system. With the increase in design of airtight dwellings in Australia there is a greater focus on balanced ventilation and heat recovery. Have an existing air conditioner? Installing a home ventilation system from DVS can boost its performance by making your home’s air easier to heat and cool!

If you’re looking for ways to create a healthier and more energy-efficient home, our ultimate balanced pressure heat recovery ventilation system is the perfect ventilation solution for your home. The heat exchanger reclaims energy produced by the exhausted stale air, and redistributes it into your home. This means that less heating is required to keep your home warm, which equates to big savings – both to your power bill and the environment.

Controlled ventilation is the key to achieve necessary air changes while maintaining an energy-efficient building. The DVS EC Reclaim Connect is an enhanced balanced pressure heat recovery ventilation system, and is located in your roof space. The two energy-efficient EC fans will effortlessly and quietly extract the damp, stale air and deliver fresh, filtered air into your home to keep it dry and healthy. As the ventilation system extracts the stale air, the heat exchanger reclaims energy that passes through it, which means that less energy escapes from your home.

Mechanical ventilation is essential to manage internal moisture in airtight buildings. For this reason balanced pressure heat recovery ventilation systems like the DVS EC Reclaim Connect are perfect for modern homes.

The DVS EC Reclaim Connect is our ultimate whole-house balanced pressure heat recovery ventilation system, and features a wireless CO2 sensor, which continually monitors the level of carbon dioxide in your home. When CO2 reaches an unhealthy level, the ventilation system will instantly increase the level of fresh air delivered into your home – helping to keep you and your family healthier all year round.

The humidity sensing control function ensures your ventilation system will only ventilate your home with air that will assist in keeping your home drier, while the energy the heat exchanger has recovered will be re-used in your home. That means less heating is required to keep your home at a desired temperature. That equates to big savings on your power bill and also benefits the environment.

New Zealand Designed and Manufactured – Internet Connected Home Ventilation Systems

DVS EC Reclaim Connect systems can be connected to your home Wi-Fi router. This means when they make improvements to the system software we are able to send them to you without the need for a potentially costly service visit.

The combined technology, connect-ability, and features available from the DVS EC Connect range of home ventilation system cannot be compared.

How Does it Work?

The DVS EC Reclaim Connect is located in your roof space (or a cupboard in your home) and uses two German-made energy-efficient EC fans ⑥. One fan will effortlessly and quietly extract the damp, stale air out of your home ①. As the DVS extracts the stale air, the heat exchanger reclaims energy from it (usually generated by activities such as cooking, showering and paid for heating) before exhausting it outside.

The second fan draws a constant supply of filtered, fresh, outdoor air into your home ③. The energy recovered by the heat exchanger is transferred to this incoming fresh air, warming or cooling it before it is delivered to your home ②. The state-of-the-art European counterflow heat exchanger will operate at up to 98% efficiency without mixing the stale and fresh airstreams ④.

Because the recovered energy is re-used in the home, less heating is required to keep your home at the desired temperature when ventilating your home. That equates to big savings – both to your power bill and the environment.

When warm air is available in the roof space, the DVS EC Reclaim Connect (when fitted with an optional Solar Gain Roof Intake) can use this free heat by passing it through the heat exchanger without roof space air being supplied to the home ⑤. This is achieved by opening the roof space bypass to allow the roof space air to mix with the extracted exhaust air from your home and pass through the heat exchanger helping to pre-warm the incoming fresh air.

To increase the effectiveness of your system during summer, an Automatic Summer Bypass can be fitted to allow the incoming fresh air to bypass the heat exchanger when the outside air is cooler than your home.

DVS EC Reclaim Connect state-of-the-art Recair Sensitive heat exchanger

Heat Exchanger

The DVS EC Reclaim Connect state-of-the-art Recair Sensitive heat exchanger reclaims up to 98% of the energy that passes through it, which means very little energy escapes.

Humidity Sensing and Control

The humidity sensitive control function constantly monitors humidity levels inside your home and in the air supply. Automatically adjusting to ensure that only air which will keep your house healthier and drier is introduced.

Carbon Dioxide CO2 Sensing and Control

Closed windows trap air filled with contaminants and carbon dioxide that cause discomfort, fatigue, and lack of focus and can make your in-home climate unhealthy.

The DVS EC Connect range constantly monitors carbon dioxide levels. When the carbon dioxide reaches an unhealthy level, the system automatically increases the level of fresh air being introduced into your home. This minimises any risk brought on by having too much carbon dioxide in your air, and is also great for getting a good and refreshing night’s sleep.

The CO2 sensors are a remote wireless device and can be positioned in up to four places in your home.

Operating Your DVS EC Reclaim Connect System

Your DVS EC Reclaim Connect System represents the latest in balanced pressure home ventilation technology. The large easy to read touch screen allows you to see what is happening with your system and to make adjustments if you need to. The system is also able to be connected to your home internet to allow trouble free, automatic downloads of software improvements.
