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-200-i

$1,995.00

plus $85 USD Shipping US and Canada

Complete unit! Just plug in and add ductwork to fresh air!

The BPE-XE-MIR 200i consumes only 38 watts of power, less than an incandescent light bulb! One of this unit consumes less than half the energy produced by a solar cell. Others consume 5 times the energy produced by a solar cell!

These galvanized steel units are specifically sized to handle residential, small office, 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.

Includes:

  • Fans 220 cfm each 
  • Factory calibrated speed controls with full variable speed for each fan
  • Merv 8 Filters for Fresh Air and Exhaust
  • World's most efficient direct counter-flow energy recovery module, over 90%!
  • Fans typically have a 20-year life, but can easily be replaced if needed.
  • Galvanized metal body, only 8.5 inches thick. Lowest profile of any product in this class.
  • Factory wired and tested as a unit.  
  • Three-pronged plug included.

BPE-XE-MIR-300-i

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 300-i 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. The 300-i Series is slimmer than other units and will fit behind a drop ceiling nicely. The 650 Series is slightly larger and meets the needs of light commercial applications and classrooms of 25-30 students in an “On Demand” ventilation scenario.

BPE-XE-MIR-400-i

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-i 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. The 400-i Series is slimmer than other units and will fit behind a drop ceiling nicely.
