App Controlled Extractor Fan
The launch of Vent Axia Svara marks the next generation of unitary fans. Home owners have complete control of their indoor air through an intuitive App designed to give them flexible options on how to run the fan. Giving home owners this control has the added benefit of removing the need for multiple returns to the property post installation should the fan not be set up quite to the householders’ liking. For example the humidity setting being too sensitive. The home owner can simply log on to the App and change the setting themselves.
For electricians, installation is made simple through Svara’s Bluetooth-enabled App allowing you to choose whether to opt for intermittent or continuous ventilation; whether you would like the humidistat to trigger operation or not; and whether the overrun timer is required. No more fiddly switches and jumpers!
Aesthetics and Silence
The name Svara takes its influence from the fan's Swedish heritage - a country well known for iconic and well thought out designs. Consumers will be attracted to Svara’s good looks with its sleek modern design, plus with noise a key issue for consumers, households will also be impressed by Svara’s quiet running, operating at just 17 dB(A) on low trickle. It is also easy to clean as the central module disconnects the motor from the rest of the fan allowing it to be simply wiped with a soft cloth, and at only 4W the energy efficient Svara also boasts low power consumption.
Multi Room Multi Function
Vent-Axia Svara is programmed to cope with the vast majority of installations. Because of this, it can be fitted in either a bathroom or Kitchen and can be set to run either continuously or intermittently.
When the light sensor is enabled Svara senses when someone is in the room and then activates. Its sophisticated light sensor is triggered by light movement and shadows. It is possible to set a delay-on so the fan is not triggered by the light during quick night time bathroom visits. The light sensor can also distinguish between headlight flashes from cars and room occupancy, so it is not triggered by passing cars, avoiding nuisance running. The sensitivity of the light sensor can be adjusted via the App.
The light sensor provides an overrun timer but only requires a live and neutral. In houses where there is only a basic fan installed, the home owner can upgrade to a timer fan without having to rewire.
Svara features a humidistat which reacts to sharp changes in humidity, for instance when someone is taking a shower. When set to continuous running, once the humidity sensor is activated the fan runs at 30l/s until humidity returns to normal levels then the fan powers down to 10l/s. Ambient humidity changes will not trigger the humidistat. It is possible to change the sensitivity of the humidity sensor via the App.
Silent Scheduling and Automatic cycles
The silent hours scheduling function allows you to deactivate the boost function on the Svara via the App, for example, this would prevent nuisance noise over night. Additionally during a vacation you can set Svara to an airing mode which operates a purge function every 12 hours for either 30, 60 or 90 minutes depending on selection. However, Svara’s sophisticated controls, will not purge if the light sensor detects that there is someone in the house.
