Three stage HEPA ﬁltration, integrated energy recovery, centrally ducted heating & cooling, variable fan speeds & air ﬂow and high efﬁciency heat pump that only draws 1.3KW per Hour. The FAS is suitable for modern homes, buildings, off grid and passive housing. A single FAS machine is designed to be able to heat & cool up to a maximum of 110m2 of floor space (per zone).
Based on the traditional heat exchanger technology, you can now have a central ducted system in the home that does heating and cooling using ultra efficient Heat Pump technology. This system does it all with astonishingly low power consumption.
The system will supply fresh air that is controlled at a constant temperature and humidity. This will make for the flow of fresh clean healthy air at comfortable temperatures. The unit has F9 (PM2.5) particulate filtration along with Carbon filtration and a G4 Pre filter (dust filter) to ensure the best quality fresh air is entering your home. So now we have a complete ventilation system that also heats and cools and controls humidity.
The Heat Pump FAS does not require an outdoor unit. This is a great advantage for apartment developments with limited space for outdoor AC units, there is even a vertical mount model for installation into a cupboard (great for apartments with limited ceiling space). These also come in a Ceiling Mount model for low energy single storey housing, the units are typically installed inside the ceiling space and ducted throughout the rooms.
100% fresh air is supplied into the building, there is no recirculation. Stale air is extracted from the building. The air on its way out passes its energy across to the incoming fresh air via the heat exchanger core. The incoming air after travelling through aluminium plate heat exchangers will have been heated or cooled by the exhausted air. The recovered air supply then travels through the Heat Pump. The Heat Pump will then either warm or cool the air further if required. If the supply air is already at the target temperature the heat pump will not be required at that point in time. In “Auto” mode there will be the 3 stages Heating, Cooling or Ventilation.
The intelligent system will recognise what needs to be achieved based on the desired temperature set on the controller. Therefore there will always be a constant flow of fresh, clean air coming into the building with minimal power loads. This system can than be further supplemented in key rooms if so desired with the Heat-On FIR heating panels or in difficult to heat rooms and areas. This system is particularly well suited for single storey new builds especially if your going to be Off Grid.
WINTER OPERATIONS In cool climates itʼs recommend to program the controller for heating loads for example to heat for 2-3 hours in the mornings from 5am until 8am and again for 4-5hrs in the evening from 5pm until 10pm. Target temperatures should be set realistically and accordingly to the heat loss or heat gain characteristics of the building. For example a modern 7 star designed & air tightness tested home located in Victoria, Australia will be able to maintain 22-23 degrees C ambient temperatures in the peak of winter, so the thermostat controller should be set accordingly to 22-23 degrees C for living areas, for every 1 degree higher your running costs will increase by a factor of 10%, the less frequently the heat pump has to be activated the more efﬁcient the system will operate. For bedrooms if heating is required over night the thermostat controller should be set to maintain 16-17 degrees C overnight.
SUMMER OPERATIONS In warm climates itʼs recommend to program the controller for cooling loads for example to start pre-cooling the house from 8am until 4pm with target temperatures set realistically and accordingly to the heat loss or heat gain characteristics of the building. For example for a modern 6 star designed & air tightness tested home located in Cairns, QLD will be able to maintain 23-24 degrees C ambient temperatures in the peak of summer, so the thermostat controller should be set accordingly to 23-24 degrees C for living areas, for every 1 degree lower your running costs will increase by a factor of 10%, the less frequently the heat pump has to be activated the more efﬁcient the system will operate. For bedrooms if cooling is required over night the thermostat controller should be set to maintain 25-26 degrees C overnight.
Showering, cooking, cleaning and breathing can add up to 40 litres of moisture to a family home in a single day. Unless this moisture is extracted mould and bacteria will start to form, it’s inevitable. The FAS system will extract the moist air from your home and introduce fresh dry air from outside. We guarantee air changes within your home.
We bring air directly from outside (not from your roof space) the fresh air then goes through a filter and a heat exchanger from there it is forced into each room of your home. At the same time the stale moist, musty air from inside is being extracted and also filtered on it’s way out to keep the heat exchanger core clean. The cycle continues and the excess humidity is being extracted and therefore your mold and dampness problems are also extracted.
