MSAV® Supply Fan from Lennox

New MSAV® supply fan technology, available on Lennox Commercial’s Energence® 7.5- to 25-ton rooftop units, easily adapts to changing conditions to improve year-round efficiency. By using a variable frequency drive and Lennox’ patent-pending control algorithms, the MSAV supply fan allows the rooftop unit to lower airflow for a dramatic reduction of energy use in multiple modes of operation—including part-load cooling, heating, ventilation and free-cooling operation—resulting in year-round utility savings. Additional benefits include: Occupied and unoccupied supply fan operational energy savings and part-load (IEER) energy savings, with efficiency improvements up to 27%.

Most building heating systems contain equipment that is incompatible with condensing boilers.

For those buildings there is the ENERVEX IPVB-ECO – an economizer that can achieve up to a 90+% efficient heating system.

It is extremely suitable for low-to-mid efficiency boilers equipped with a draft hood or a draft diverter.

  • A single IPVB-ECO Economizer can serve multiple boilers
  • Maintains perfect draft conditions no matter the heating load
  • Replaceable heat exchanger (only minor disassembly required)
  • Simple installation – easy retrofit
  • Natural gas or LP
  • Optional automatic by-pass

The IPVB-ECO is patent pending. Contact us for further information: ENERVEX Inc.
