Sentinel Kinetic B Residential Heat Recovery Ventilation Unit
Parameters and specification
Sentinel Kinetic B is the most often used unit for single-family houses. Its maximum ventilation performance is 275 m3/hr. This volume is enough for a house of living area of about 200 sqm. The unit is equipped with an integrated bypass for summer operation. The bypass is intended for air to avoid the heat exchanger in hot summer periods when the building needs to be cooled directly by outside air during the night. Different intensity of ventilation for different times of day can be set. The unit can be installed on a wall in a boiler room or on a floor in an attic. It is fitted with a condensate outlet that needs to be connected to the building’s sewer. Should the unit be installed in an inaccessible place, it can be equipped with an optional room controller connected through a cable. The unit includes air filters, filter class G3 (fine dust). Filters in the unit are easily replaceable. The wiring board allows connection of external control elements such as humidity sensor, CO2 sensor, or the boost mode can be turned on by e.g. switching on a lavatory light.

Due to the high efficiency of the unit, its heat exchanger may suffer from icing during extremely frosty periods. Therefore, the unit is equipped with an automatic defrost function. When defrosting, there is a slight negative pressure indoors for a short time. This can be avoided by installing an air heater into the inlet ducting - see air heaters.
The great advantage of this unit is its small size and a very low noise level.
