XPELAIR LEADS THE WAY IN SINGLE ROOM HEAT RECOVERY TECHOLOGYXpelair has launched Solitair, a new highly efficient 4” single room heat recovery unit ideal for the refurbishment market.

Quick and easy installation and an enhanced heat recovery capacity are just two of the stand out qualities of Solitair, the latest addition to Xpelair’s market-leading range of ventilation solutions.

The new Solitair 4” unit features Xpelair’s innovative Ghost Air Movement Technology, meaning the solution is near silent in operation. Manufactured with a pre-assembled area, Solitair is designed to fit into the space of an existing 4” fan and no additional work is needed prior to installation of the unit. It means installers need only take out the old and replace with new – quickly and cost-effectively replacing intermittent fans with more efficient single room alternatives.

The efficient unit, which delivers 80% heat recovery by incorporating a unique rotating rigid hexagonal heat exchanger, further improves on existing technology thanks to its ability to function at a record low outside temperature; operating at temperatures as low as -150C.

For enhanced efficiency in the warmer months, Xpelair’s Solitair is also fitted with a summer bypass facility, which provides free cooling when the evening outside air temperature drops below indoor levels.

Lee Stones, category manager at Xpelair, said: “The launch of Solitair not only represents a significant improvement on existing technology on the market but it also demonstrates how integral the installation process is to all of our new product designs.

“We understand that time and ease of installation are crucial factors for installers, especially when tasked with fitting a large numbers of units. The ability to replace the unit in quick time, whilst upgrading and improving the ventilation and heat recovery capabilities of the dwelling at the same time, is something we’re proud of.”
