The Air Cycler controls fresh air intake and ventilation and is a low cost alternative to the more expensive ERV/HRV. By periodically operating the HVAC System fan the Air Cycler vastly improves the temperature, humidity and filtration system in the home or office. It provides more circulation throughout the building and eliminates stagnant air and odors by inducing fresh outdoor air. The Air Cycler is a “smart” device as it knows when the central fan operates and activates the fan only after a selected period of time during which the fan has not operated.
The Air Cycler has a 24VAC output circuit that controls a motorized damper, Model RDSC, ducted to the outdoors, to effectively regulate fresh air ventilation when the Air Cycler is on. The damper is cycled whenever the Air Cycler turns the fan on.
The RDSC is a 24VAC normally closed damper that powers open on a call from the FAC. Any of ZONEFIRST’s spring return dampers can be made for power open operation and used with the FAC.
