Most of the technology is not visible
At Puumera, ventilation units are located inside a separate housing technology cabinet in the stairwell. Other technology needed in a smart building is also located inside the cabinet, and these can be accessed without going into the apartment. The location of the ventilation unit is excellent also from the ventilation noise point of view, and the filters can also be serviced without going into the apartment.
The control panel of each MyVallox ventilation unit is located inside the apartment. The user can use the control panel for adjusting ventilation efficiency and for viewing data relating to apartment-specific ventilation and to the operation of the unit, including history data. However, in order to prevent user errors, the user has no access to expert settings. MyVallox control panel has three ready user levels, of which the best can be chosen for each site during setup.
Efficient removal of cooking smells contributes to high-quality indoor air. To ensure the best results, this function must be easy to use. At this site, extraction is increased by simply opening the boost damper of the cooker hood. Information is transmitted to the MyVallox ventilation unit of the opening of the boost damper of the cooker hood, and ventilation is increased automatically. The position function of the damper is linked to the programmable input of the ventilation unit. This means that ventilation can be increased more when the cooker is used than after a shower, for example. The programmable input of the MV unit also allows for increasing the speed of the supply air fan when the extraction fan is used during cooking to compensate for the under pressure generated when the cooker hood damper is opened.
MyVallox ventilation units have Modbus readiness as a standard feature and they have been connected to Fidelix house automation via a ModBus RTU channel. A wide range of data can be transmitted from the ventilation unit to house automation including all temperatures that are important for the operation of the ventilation unit, apartment temperature, humidity percentage, and fan speeds. A limit value can be set for all values, deviation from which will trigger an alarm. The efficiency of ventilation can also be controlled remotely and the settings of the unit, e.g. supply air temperature, can all be modified in one place. In rental apartments, ventilation can be reduced when the apartment is unoccupied.
