How Does it Work?

The IDEO works by extracting stale, moisture-laden air from the wet rooms such as bathrooms, WCs, kitchen and shower rooms, which is released into the atmosphere. At the same time it supplies fresh, filtered air into the living areas. The energy from the extracted air is transferred to the new fresh air through the high efficiency heat exchanger before being re-supplied into the property.

IDEO- How it works

Operation without by-pass

With a simple flow system, the new air would enter at 2°C through the air inlets which would lower the interior temperature of the home. Through the heat recovery process, the new air enters at 20°C.

Innovative Control Module

Supplied as standard with the IDEO is the intelligent control module, enabling the setting of multiple functions and indicators. It is in permanent communication with the unit and allows the setting of the ventilation speed, the summer by-pass, frost protection and absence mode.

The absence mode is particularly beneficial when the residents are on holiday or away for a longer time period. The control module also provides an indication of energy saving in kW/hr/month, battery level, indoor temperature and filter change. The intelligent filter change indicator is programmed to monitor the level of particulate in the filters and will notify the user when these need replacing, as opposed to simply being set to a specific time period. This ensures optimum efficiency of the unit and that filters are only replaced when necessary.
