What is the difference between HTHV products and 80/20 unit heaters?
For years, HTHV direct-fired heating systems and traditional 80/20 direct-fired units have been the heating solutions used for new construction and retrofit projects throughout the U.S. The largest difference between HTHV products and 80/20 units are the indoor air quality (IAQ) that the systems provide.
Good IAQ includes comfortable temperature and humidity, adequate supply of fresh outdoor air, and control of pollutants from inside and outside of the building. The performance and safety standards set by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) are z83.4 for HTHV 100% outside air non-recirculating direct gas-fired industrial air heaters and z83.18 for 80/20 recirculating direct gas-fired industrial air heaters. Thus, HTHV direct-fired 100% outside air technologies improves IAQ better than 80/20 direct-fired technology.
