Smart Energy Saving
National Ventilation’s Monsoon IntelliSystem Heat Recovery Unit offers a smarter way to whole house ventilation. The IntelliSystem is a Mechanical Ventilation with Heat Recovery (MVHR) unit that is near silent, has market-leading efficiency and offers easy control via its touch screen or wifi linked App.
This energy saving heat recovery solution is simple and effective and has been designed to provide the maximum level of control and comfort available by continuously supplying and extracting air throughout the home ensuring the best possible consumer experience. Developed with energy efficiency at the heart of the unit, its high efficiency/low sound levels were achieved through significant research and development using Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD). Designed to offer the ultimate MVHR solution in one unit, the IntelliSystem is ideal for self-builders and developers alike.
This MVHR unit from National Ventilation really covers all the bases… Attractive to end-users, small eco developers, self-builders and electricians, the IntelliSystem is an intelligent, energy-saving MVHR unit which is packed with innovative features:
• Highly energy efficient, the IntelliSystem boasts market-leading performance featuring a heat exchanger which recovers up to 93% of the heat energy.
• Offering great connected controls, the IntelliSystem features a touch screen and app control as well as Wi-Fi connectivity.
• Offering easy installation thanks to the handy app, which electricians will love, the app also aids commissioning.
• Wireless commissioning and USB Pre-commissioning make commissioning simple and quick, helping the system perform to its highest standards to ensure energy efficiency
• For wholesalers the IntelliSystem boasts attractive features to sell to electricians and at the same time offers installers National Ventilation’s free ventilation design service.
• The full design service offered by National Ventilation ensures the system is designed correctly to meet Building Regulations, so the IntelliSystem will perform as designed helping ensure energy efficiency.
In addition, this lightweight unit offers….
• A complete summer bypass facility
• Left/right handing
• Pre-heater & post heater options
…. and not forgetting ISO ePM2.5 & ISO ePM10 filter options to help ensure a healthy environment for households with good indoor air quality.
Energy efficiency is at the core of the IntelliSystem design. Offering high thermal efficiency and low energy consumption combined with impressive control, the IntelliSystem has been designed to provide the maximum level of control and comfort available by continuously supplying and extracting air throughout the home ensuring the best possible consumer experience. It extracts warm, moist air from ‘wet’ rooms through ducting which passes through the heat exchanger before being exhausted outside. Fresh incoming air is preheated via the integral heat exchanger which recovers up to 93% of the heat energy that would otherwise be wasted, offering market-leading performance. A cutting-edge EC motor, combined with the uniquely CFD-designed interior, raises the bar on performance. This innovation is why IntelliSystem can deliver the lowest SFP available—2 points lower than its nearest class rival. Its efficiency significantly cuts carbon emissions compared to competitor units. Its high efficiency/low sound levels have been achieved through significant research and development using CFD. These profiling techniques were extensively used during design and were key in creating highly sculpted interiors which ensure airflows are maximized through the unit, minimizing energy use and noise.
Commissioning made simple
The IntelliSystem has a range of features that electricians will find attractive. The compact and lightweight unit makes installation easy with the unit suitable for mounting vertically in a plant room or utility room with both left and right-hand installation achievable by simply selecting the spigots to atmosphere via the touch screen controller. Wireless commissioning is possible via the App, which simply removes the need for installers to repeatedly return to the unit during commissioning of airflows, encouraging best practice and high performance through simplified commissioning. A simple idea enabled by a smart phone App that makes a huge difference to installation ease and speed. No more climbing up and down stairs or into lofts – which is easier and timesaving – reducing cost of install. (USB functionality also allows pre-commissioning, thus saving time on developments with same specification builds.) By aiding commissioning this helps improve the IntelliSystem’s performance and so saves energy.
In addition, the IntelliSystem control panel on the unit comes with a manual boost switch which is designed to provide an increased level of ventilation when required to eradicate odours or during hot periods during the summer. The unit will operate continuously on a normal mode setting and will boost when one of the control devices, such as the humidistat is activated.
A handy App
Offering state-of -the art controls the IntelliSystem features an easy-to-use App control. Households can simply download the IntelliSystem’s free App onto their smartphones which enables sophisticated but simple control over their indoor air quality (IAQ). Using the App residents can select operating modes, view unit speeds, efficiencies and temperatures and set schedules. Households can also link the unit to their home router via a remote server and then control the unit on their home network.
Alternatively, the IntelliSystem can be controlled via the easy to use touch screen control panel which can be located on the MVHR unit or wired remotely at a convenient location in the home. Commenting on this versatile unit Mick Daniels, Sales Director at National Ventilation said: “Offering improved IAQ, easy control, low noise and high efficiency, the IntelliSystem is sure to be a popular choice with developers and self-builders alike. A summer bypass mode is another great feature which has a range of options to help ensure year-round thermal comfort allowing households to relax in a comfortable, healthy home environment.”
A range of options
IAQ is further enhanced with the IntelliSystem thanks to ISO ePM2.5 and ISO ePM 10 filter options which help ensure that even buildings in heavily urbanised areas can filter out most impurities, including damaging PM2.5 particles. Flow sensors detect filter resistance when the unit’s filters need changing and will notify households via the App, thus helping to maintain the quality of incoming air.
Summer bypass keeps things cool
Developed for modern thermally efficient homes, IntelliSystem’s programmable summer bypass is fully automatic and truly intelligent. Set for both comfort temperature and minimum external temperature, its settings enable the controls to determine whether it is winter or summer allowing it to run without resident intervention. For further cooling the IntelliSystem summer bypass has an ‘evening fresh’ option that spends 5 hours at a selected setting, such as boost or purge, finishing at about 10pm so there is no nuisance noise at night. Additional cooling is also available for periods of several days of high temperatures and warm nights with the ‘night time fresh’ setting where IntelliSystem utilises an overnight purge that allows a building to be pre-cooled for the following day by taking advantage of cooler night-time temperatures.
