R&D is a continuous process which happens at ProAir as our mission is to continuously provide a better solution for our customers. Like all technologies, progress is continuous and new things are discovered every day.
We have introduced the D & J duct system to Ireland. It is specifically designed for heat recovery ventilation systems in the residential and small commercial markets. It is very suitable for low pressure high efficiency duct layouts. Brochure
ProAir Systems has developed a close relationship with the Centre for Sustainable Energy of Galway Mayo Institute of Technology (GMIT). It has tested our FEX (Fresh and EXhaust) terminal. It allows fresh air to be taken in and exhaust air to be removed at the same point without a cross contamination of the air streams. More
The need for efficient high quality internal air terminals (valves) has been addressed. More.
Our PA600LI unit is currently under test in the Building Research Establishment (BRE) in Watford for Passive House certification. Central to this are appropriate controls to ensure the unit will not let you down even in the most extreme conditions.
We are the lead partner in group that is developing the ProAir Indoor Climate Control System (PAICCS). This PAICCS project is the largest and most exciting R&D project that the company has ever become involved in. The idea of using the air from a HRV unit to heat/cool a house is something we have had ambition to work on for many years. Long association with one of the leading researchers into this area of building science world-wide, bore fruit when our sister company in the UK was successful last year in achieving funding from the UK’s Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC) to develop his interesting concepts. His idea is to use a small air-to-air heat pump to bias a certain type of HRV core to perform way above the norm, almost like the way a small signal biases a transistor to amplify power. The PAICCS will heat/cool and humidify/dehumidify the air way more efficiently than any similar product on the market today.
