New Bryant® Legacy™ Line Energy Recovery Ventilator Offers Streamlined Installation and Optimal EfficiencyINDIANAPOLIS, Sept. 12, 2013 – Bryant Heating & Cooling Systems announces the release of the Legacy Line Energy Recovery Ventilator (ERV), which provides application flexibility through direct mounting to home furnaces or ductwork, without requiring a separate wall control. Bryant, a leading supplier of heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) equipment, is a part of UTC Climate, Controls & Security, a unit of United Technologies Corp. (NYSE: UTX).
In addition to straightforward installation due to its two-duct connection design, the Legacy Line ERV offers a solution to the growing need for fresh-air ventilation, particularly in today’s energy-efficient new homes. According to the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), the average American spends up to 90 percent of their time indoors, with roughly 23 million people, including about 6.8 million children, in the U.S. suffering from asthma. The DOE found a correlation between the disease and indoor airborne pollutants such as dust, mold gases and chemicals.1 The Legacy Line ERV reinvigorates the home with a continuous stream of fresh outdoor air while exhausting airborne pollutants, resulting in improved comfort and humidity levels.
Installation is easy with the two-duct connection design of the Legacy Line ERV, when compared with a traditional four-duct connection system. Not only does the unit have a smaller cabinet than other products available, it can connect directly to the furnace or ductwork, which eliminates the need to accommodate a separate unit and costly duct connections.
Another key feature of the Legacy Line ERV is its ventilator motor that quietly circulates air through the system, while maintaining optimal efficiency. In addition, multiple fan-speed selections allow the system to provide just the right amount of fresh air year-round.
"Bryant’s new Legacy Line ERV is the perfect ventilator for today’s increasingly efficient homes," said Tom Archer, senior product manager, Bryant. "This new product will provide the homeowner with freshly circulated air, while operating quietly and efficiently. Coupled with the compact, two-duct connection design and the Legacy Line ERV provides a logical solution for efficiently ventilating new homes."
