The new SANO intelligent Positive Input Ventilation (PIV) unit from Elta Fans automatically adjusts air flow according to the temperature and moisture content of the incoming air.
The unit’s Eco-LoFlo mode checks moisture content when the incoming air is less than 10°C to reduce airflow to a minimum and maximise energy efficiency. Additional ‘normal’ and ‘summer’ modes, plus an ability to override the unit’s automatic controls, help to ensure that the unit’s performance will always match user preference.
For installation flexibility, the system is available in both a loft and wall-mounted unit. The loft-mounted model boasts low maintenance, large G4 grade filter, while the wall-mounted equivalent contains a G2 filter.
Six different settings can be chosen by the installer from the wall-mounted unit’s integral controls, with a further two speed settings available on the loft-mounted version. This ensures each unit can be fine-tuned to suit the specific size, layout, thermal properties, and moisture production of the home. Such flexibility also ensures each setting matches the corresponding ventilation rates prescribed by Part F of the Building Regulations.
John Bradley, Elta’s Head of Sales, says: “PIV technology has largely remained the same for decades, so it’s with some excitement that we can unveil a unit that marks such a significant leap forward. It can control condensation without any compromise to comfort levels or energy bills.”
