BPE Energy Recovery Ventilators (ERVs)

WHAT THEY DO: Building Performance Equipment, Inc.’s ERVs are able to precondition fresh outdoor air to room temperature for your building, school, office, or home while substantially reducing your energy bill, improving indoor air quality, and reducing the emissions that feed global warming. In other words, the units efficiently recover energy from stale air leaving the building and use it to warm room temperature in colder months and cool it during the warmer months.

WHAT GOES INTO THEM: Building Performance Equipment, Inc. ERVs are made from medical-grade polypropylene, a rugged resin that is resistant to many chemicals, bases, and acids as well as the growth of mold or formation of frost. BPE’s patented polymer construction has no moving parts, requires little to no maintenance, and allows for low pressure drops as well as high-heat and high-moisture transfer. This versatility enables the units to excel at providing comfortable indoor air quality (IAQ) and humidity levels while maintaining temperature control. Each unit comes standard with BPE’s 10-year limited lifetime warranty. Typically, inline fans are installed separately. (See BPE’s recommendations.)

WHAT MAKES THEM SPECIAL: Sure, our units are longer than your average ERV, but thanks to BPE’s patented engineering, everything about them aims for bigger and better. These high-efficiency, air-to-air, direct counter-flow energy recovery ventilators are typically 80% thermally efficient on up to 98% and have an Energy Efficiency Rating (EER) that is unsurpassed at between 36 and 160 EER. (10 EER is typical of the industry.)

BPE-XE-MIR-200i

These galvanized steel units are specifically sized to handle residential, small offices and dedicated ventilation applications. While the rest of BPE’s ERVs utilize separate in-line fans, the 200-i has two built-in fans, as well as plug-in capability via a power cord with a three-pronged plug. The 200-i is the perfect size for providing fresh make-up air to a small office (up to 10 people) or the home of a family of up to six. Simple to install, the unit can connect to new or existing ductwork, is light enough for DIY positioning, and easily plugs into a 120 VAC outlet.

BPE-XE-MIR-400

These galvanized steel units are specifically sized to handle residential, small offices and dedicated ventilation applications. Simplified residential Installation manuals are a good point of reference for installing the nominal 400 and 500 series BPE units. Typically, you would install these units with two fans that provide 50% to 75% of nominal cfm in airflow. At this 50% to 75% flow range, the BPE units typically operate at 80% to more than 90% thermal efficiency. Since the 400 Series is slimmer than the 500, it will fit behind a drop ceiling nicely. The 500 Series is slightly larger and meets the needs of light commercial applications and classrooms of 25-30 students in an “On Demand” ventilation scenario.
