Heat Recovery Units
Please review our product comparison chart, and keep in mind that our products are most effective in the space or room where they are installed. Nevertheless, you can reach out to us with the details of the application (e.g., room or office), number of bedrooms, floor area, and ceiling height for recommendations on the most appropriate product for your space.
Please install our products in this manner:
–Option 1: You may install one unit of MINI or MINT in the space where you will spend most of your time inside the tiny house. It is also recommended to install at least one unit of VENTPETIT in the washroom (bathroom or toilet room).
–Option 2: If suitable, you may install one unit of CLIMATE to ventilate a tiny house without the need for a separate bathroom fan.
Please also review our product comparison chart.
Yes. Please check our product comparison chart for the recommended floor areas for each unit.
MINI (≤45 m3/h): It can achieve temperature differentials of ~80% and uses a shell-and-tube air exchanger for heat recovery.
If you need a robust heat recovery ventilator with HEPA filtration capability, choose MINI.
CLIMATE (≤75 m3/h): It is not rated for effectiveness and uses the walls of a compressed duct for heat transfer.
If you need to just ventilate a space with heat recovery, choose CLIMATE.
Please see more details here.
You can easily install the product by following the instructions in the User Manual and other product documentation. If you are unable to use our documentation for installation, you may engage the services of a professional contractor.

The product can be mounted either horizontally or vertically, and the specific instructions are provided in the User Manual.
No. The product is built to operate independently of any external appliances.
MINI and MINT are suitable for extremely cold climates. We hypothesize that the accumulation of moisture is mitigated in our products due to the peculiar characteristics and operating flow rate of the air exchangers. Moisture accumulation in the aforementioned units has neither been observed nor reported to us, which implies that the moisture in the air stream in an indoor space would be exhausted to the outdoors.
Yes. The direction of heat transfer will automatically change such that thermal energy will flow from the hotter air stream (outdoors) to the colder air stream (indoors).
Internally, the MINI and CLIMATE units run on 12V DC and 5V DC, respectively.
Nevertheless, the units can be plugged into an AC outlet through the use of an appropriate intermediary AC – DC adapter. The DC end of the adapter can be connected to the unit whereas the AC end can be plugged into the AC power supply in a building.
For off-grid applications, a 5.5 mm male plug connector can be used to directly power MINI from a source that supplies constant 12V DC. Likewise, CLIMATE can be powered by a source that supplies constant 5V DC and up to 12V DC for maximum air flow rate.
