Time: May 12, 2020 05:00 PM Central Time (US and Canada)

Sign Up for Free: Email Alex and he will share access information prior to the webinar.

Program: Participate in a 1-hour presentation which includes a live session of a fully operational PentaCare V12 from Minotair. This is the all-in-one compact evolutive D+HVAC equipment for Passive Houses, multifamily buildings and anyone who wants to live indoor with one of the best indoor climates possible.

The PentaCare V12 is 4 machines in 1 being: an Active Heat Recovery HRV + a Dehumidifier + a Ducted Air Source Heat Pump + an HEPA MERV 15 Air Filtration device. That cutting edge technology equipment strives at taking care of 5 things: Dehumidification + Heating + Ventilation + Air filtration + Cooling (D+HVAC). Ventilation wise, it’s the only one capable of Net Zero Positive Ventilation© as the most efficient of all HRVs and ERVs with a record-setting SRE of 116% as certified by the HVI. Meaning the PentaCare V12 can output more heat energy that the electrical energy it uses. Only from Minotair, the Science of air.

We’ll also talk briefly about compartmentalization principle for mechanical systems in MF buildings. That principle promotes unit space heating and cooling and hot water being provided by individual mechanical systems located in each unit. Compartmentalization principle for mechanical systems in MF buildings is a principle that as, amongst other sources, clearly explained in a 6-page article from Dr Joseph W. Lstiburek, PH.D., P.ENG., FELLOW ASHRAE who was published in the July 2019 edition of the ASHRAE Journal.
