Lossnay RVX Energy Recovery Ventilators
A new introduction from Mitsubishi Electric Trane HVAC US
Ventilation for health and safety that also meets energy efficiency requirements
Health, Safety and Energy Efficiency
Health and safety are key considerations when making decisions involving HVAC systems, especially in light of current challenges. However, energy efficiency requirements must still be met. Mitsubishi Electric Trane HVAC US (METUS), addresses all of these concerns with their next generation Lossnay® Energy Recovery Ventilator (ERV) units, the RVX.
During heating season, this high-performance ERV improves comfort and efficiency by tempering outside air with heat from the exhaust air stream before supplying it to a space. During cooling season, the exiting cooler air reduces the temperature of the incoming air. To comply with new energy codes in states such as Washington, the RVX replaces AC fan motors of previous generations with DC fan motors.
The Lossnay total heat-exchange ventilation system uses a low-maintenance cross-flow energy-exchange core made of a specially-treated, cellulose-fiber membrane to perform temperature and humidity exchange. Lossnay RVX helps building owners, engineers and architects meet ventilation requirements and improve indoor air quality. In addition to increasing efficiency by using DC fan motors, the RVX can use external input signals, such as from a CO2 sensor, to adjust fan speeds for demand-control ventilation.
Lossnay units utilize a free-cooling function that helps to reduce costs and boost efficiency. Additionally, RVX models have an integrated bypass damper design that makes installation and integration with existing systems quick and efficient.

“Ventilation is primarily about occupant health and safety, but new codes and evolving market demands mean we can’t talk ventilation without also addressing energy efficiency,” says Cain White, director, commercial product management, Mitsubishi Electric Trane HVAC US. “We’ve updated our already energy-efficient Lossnay units to keep pace with today’s new energy codes and ventilation standards, and anticipate future ones. Our customers expect reliable, high-quality equipment that can meet or exceed requirements in any application. These changes are another example of how we fulfill that responsibility.”
