American Aldes VentZone® Zoned IAQ with Heat Recovery Kit is a combination residential heat recovery ventilator (HRV) and zone register terminal (ZRT). The HRV transfers sensible energy from stale exhaust air to fresh supply air while the ZRT provides continuous IAQ exhaust and on-demand boost exhaust. The VentZone® kit is a residential heat recovery system that is can be used for both whole-house IAQ ventilation and as a central bath exhaust that provides pressure-independent zoned exhaust control. VentZone® Zoned IAQ with Heat Recovery is the only HRV system on the market that can effectively and independently boost exhaust airflow on a zone-by-zone basis, while potentially reducing the size of the central exhaust ventilator and the number of exhaust duct penetrations.
