Mitsubishi’s vertical innovation 

Mitsubishi Electric Australia has launched its newest mechanical ventilation with heat recovery (MVHR) system, designed to recover heat from the air inside a home and transfer it to fresh, dry air introduced from outside. 

Mitsubishi says the new system is ideally suited to residential buildings – including multi-storey edefices or homes located in inner-city locations – concerned with localised air quality. 

“The Lossnay technology continuously removes stale interior air from bathrooms, kitchens, toilets, and the laundry,” says the company. “Heat is then transferred to the incoming fresh air to warm the home on a cool day. This allows maximised energy efficiency of ventilated air while reducing the demands on air conditioning for heating.” 

The Vertical Lossnay has new features including a compact slimline design, low noise output, and both left and right configurations. Bypass mode allows the unit to bring in fresh air from outside without recovering the heat, helping to reduce the need for air conditioning cooling, such as overnight in summer. And a third filter slot can hold an optional NOx (nitrogen oxide) filter on the supply side of the unit to clean incoming air in polluted environments. The third filter slot can alternatively hold an optional PM2.5 filter.

Feasibility study of wastewater energy transfer for an existing campus building cluster

Feasibility study of wastewater energy transfer for an existing campus building cluster

The HVAC-related energy usage of a group of three existing buildings on a Canadian university campus (the “Cluster”) was simulated. Two scenarios were compared: (1) an ambient loop paired with conventional HVAC equipment (boiler plant and cooling tower), and (2) an ambient loop using wastewater energy transfer (“WET”). The study aimed to assess the feasibility of implementing WET as a heating and cooling method for cold-climate institutional buildings, as well as to measure the effects of WET implementation on energy usage, greenhouse gas emissions, and energy costs
