The ECMModulator’s advanced electronic circuitry and programming, combines old fashioned common sense and many years of experience with the high efficiency and silent operation of an ECM motor. The result is a product that eliminates the major complaints associated with residential heating and air conditioning systems while significantly increasing efficeincy. The ECMModulator can be installed on a very wide variety of HVAC systems, new or old, any make or model furnace, air conditioner or heat pump, any fuel, any time of year. The installation is quick, clean and you probably will not notice slight interuption of heat or cooling during the install.
UNMATCHED COMFORT, SILENCE, EFFICIENCY, IAQ, HUMIDITY CONTROL, & VERSATILITY
- Smoothly and seamlessly modulates the blower for both heating and cooling in response to delivered air temperatures.
The Whisperer 4Z has an on board pressure transducer to limit the duct pressure in zoned systems. Eliminates the
need for inefficient dump zones and bypass dampers! Holds within 0.02” wc. Pressure setting and is easily field
adjustable. No zone system is complete without it.
Jumper allows for furnace or heat pump operation, or both if you want to switch the active mode for hybrid systems.
Accepts a dry contact closure to allow adjustment of AC coil and output temperature from a humidistat signal.Easily drops humidity 10% and more in most humid climate installations. PLUS, in dry climates it doesn’t dehumidifyany more than any other form of AC. If it doesn’t see a humidity load, it doesn’t go after it!
Minimum speed (IAQ) adjustment allows constant fan in even the most humid climates. Keeps all IAQproducts functioning at peak efficiency. Can be set as low as 200 silent and draft free rpm for those periodswhen the blower would normally be off.
Has a 0 to 10 vdc output signal which allows control of frequency drives to modulate single phase orthree phase multiple horsepower pumps and large belt driven fans with the same results and features asresidential equipment.
- Digitally computer based programmed, so can be re-programmed for special applications.
ECM motors were designed to MODULATE. Not timed speed steps! (Time is for catching the bus) The ecMModulator provides 100% smooth true, seamless Variable Speed modulation for existing ECM systems and for converting PSC equipment to ECM. Any existing system can be modernized with one “plug & play” unit that fits all applications.
PLUG AND PLAY INSTALLTION
The next time you notice that cold room, cold floor, hot upstairs , cold downstairs, up and down temperatures, blower banging on and off and waking you up at night, having to turn up the volume on the TV when the blower comes on, REMEMBER you don’t have to put up with it. The only thing wrong is you don’t have an ecMModulator or FanHandler control.
The next time you notice that cold draft, REMEMBER you don’t have to put up with it. The ecMModulator will solve the problem. Comfort isn’t noticed, It’s just there. All the time throughout your home, floor to ceiling and room to room.
HOW IT WORKS
communicates with the temperature sensor located in delivered air. This information is
converted into an electronic signal going to the ecm motor. The ecm motor turns the blower at the proper
rpm for every delivered air temperature FOR BOTH HEATING AND COOLING.
During heating, it can’t blow a cold draft because, when the air entering the home isn’t very warm, the speed of
that air is slow. As the temperature of the entering air increases, the speed increases. On most winter days, the
blower may never reachfull speed before the thermostat is satisfied. Once the burner shuts off, the blower
glides back down along the temperature path untill the blower is running very slow and continous (optional) until
the next heat cycle. Heat pump systems average about 15° higher for delivered air temperature. This keeps the
delivered air cozy and warm.
AIR CONDITIONING HVAC FACTS
- HVAC systems are sized to meet the hottest and the coldest weather conditons you will encounter in a
year’s time. This is called “design conditions”.
- In some years, design condtions will happen maybe a couple of days in a year or maybe not at all.
At any time you are not experiencing the hot and muggy air conditoning design conditions, your airconditioner is off a good portion of the time. During these off periods, humidity builds up in your home.
Because the high speed blower is innefficient at removing humidity, you end upwith that hot and muggy feeling. So, you set the thermostat down and you end upwith the cool and clammy (smelly sock) situation.
Because of the programming of the ecMModulator, it forces your air conditioner towring the moisture out of the air. You remain comfortable and cool
HEATING HVAC FACTS
At any time you are not experiencing heating design conditions, your HVAC systemis too large.
The blower starts and blows the same way that it would if it were the coldest dayof the year.
You might be happy to hear the blower going full tilt if it were truly design conditioncold, but not every time it comes on!
The ecMModulator increases the blower’s speed as the temperature of the air coming from yourregisters gets warmer. You experience an air speed for each temperature that makes air movementdifficult to feel.
During what would normally be the blower off period, you can run the blower very slowly so that air inyour home remains constantly and silently mixed while all IAQ products work at peak efficiency.
Sudden full speed starts and high speed air movment through an air conditoning coil can strip water off the coil
and down the ductwork where it can contribute to mold growth. Avoidance of mold in HVAC systems is a growig
concern and takes a multi disciplined approach. The ecMModulator will not cure or prevent mold, but it will
contribute to it’s avoidance and control.
|The next time your air conditioning gives you that hot and muggy or cool and clammy feeling or that musty sock smell. REMEMBER, you don’t have to put up with it. You won’t notice true comfort. It’s just there, from room to room, floor to ceiling and all the time.||
True whole home comfort and a healthyindoor environment are required ingredients of Indoor Air Quality! If you don’t feel that the your IAQ equip is giving you the results you expected, REMEMBER that you don’t have to put up with it. You can vastly improve IAQ equipment performance by having your present HVAC system brought up to date with an ecMModulator.
The ecMM odulator is not conspicuous consumption like the new “can you top this” spoke wheels, jet ski, camper
etc. Nobody will know but you and your family. A week after it’s installed in your present HVAC system, you’ll forget
it until you visit a friends home. Then you can tell them“YOU DON’T HAVE TO PUT UP WITH IT!”
CRUISE CONTROL FOR ZONED SYSTEMS
ELIMINATES THE INEFFICIENT, TROUBLESOME, NOISY, WATER
STRIPPING OFF THE COIL - BYPASS DAMPERS!
The ecMModulator Model HVAC Whisperer 4-Z. Is the industry standard for controlling duct pressure in zoned HVAC systems. It can control the duct pressure in a zoned system to within 0.02” wc. It modulates the blower in response to the delivered air temperature, but will not modulate past the easily field-adjustable duct pressure setting. Because temperature controlled blower modulation doesn’t strip water off the coil during air conditioning, the blower can be run continuous in even the most hot and muggy climates. During the periods that the blower would normally be off, air is always moving silently at a gentle rate. Thus all IAQ products are working at a much higher efficiency.
Gentle and continuos air circulation levels out temperatures in the home which often results in the active zones being satisfied before the duct pressure limit is reached. Another very important result from the ecMModulator’s precise control is that the zone system will become less active with fewer opening and closings of zone dampers. Therefore the zone system fades into the background and responds to changes in thermostat settings, sun load and other weather related conditions. THERE IS NOT A ZONED SYSTEM THAT WAS EVER INSTALLED, OR EVER WILL BE INSTALLED THAT CANNOT BE VASTLY IMPROVED BY THE ecMM odulator HVAC/IAQ WHISPERER! PERIOD!!!!
YOU ARE NOT COMFORTABLE JUST BECAUSE SOMEONE SAYS YOU ARE COMFORTABLE!
YOU ARE THE ONLY JUDGE OF HOW YOU FEEL!
BULDING SCIENCE IS A RELATIVELY NEW INDUSTRY THAT IS
AFFECTING CHANGES IN A WIDE RANGE OF BUILDING CODES
AND PROCEDURES. A WEBSITE THAT WE RECOMMEND IS:
YOUR HVAC CONTRACTOR CAN INSTALL AN HVAC WHISPERER FOR YOU.
IF THEY DON’T UNDERSTAND THE CONCEPT AND TRY TO SELL YOU ON SOMETHING ELSE; THEN FIND AN HVAC,
BUILDING SCIENCE, HOME PERFORMANCE, ETC. CONTRACTOR, THAT IS MUCH BETTER QUALIFIED
Whenever you get really super tired of that on and off bang, whoosh, rattle noise that wears on your nerves, REMEMBER, you don’t have to put up with it. Banging on and off isn’t only wearing on you, it isn’t good for the HVAC equipment. ecMModulator comfort is actually boring. There’s nothing to notice.
