Home Comfort & Safety with Fantech Solutions

Fantech as Ventilation

One of the many advanced features of The New American Home is the incorporation of wellness into the design. Efficiencies incorporated into the zoned HVAC system allow for the utmost homeowner comfort, while the HERO fresh air appliance installed in the bedrooms ensures a healthy breathing environment. With a fresh air appliance, the home exchanges stale indoor air with fresh outdoor air all while maintaining the temperature at comfort levels.


Well-appointed laundry facilities within a luxury home do not always ensure the short duct lengths recommended for dryer venting. A Dryer Exhaust Duct Power Ventilator (DEDPV) is a feature within TNAH that ensures the safety and effectiveness of the duct run while minimizing the risk of fire due to lint buildup for the homeowners.
