Ductless Air Exchange

NYArtist | Posted in General Questions on


Approx 2 years ago I found a Fantech air exchange unit that goes against the outside wall and will bring fresh air in and stale/toxic air outside. It was very affordable, under $400 and could be installed by an electrician quite easily. I placed a link in my email and now that I’m ready to move forward the link doesn’t work. Fantech says they have no such unit. I’m beyond frustrated because I had spent a long time researching for it.

Several years ago my art studio was contaminated with Benjamin Moore Natura paint and I had to pull out the walls and insulation. The room still smells and I can’t figure out where it’s coming from and do not have the funds to tear down the building and rebuild…so I’m stuck. I thought that an air exchange woud be helpful. There is no heat inside the building but there is a/c so it’s a 3 season workspace.

I would really like to complete the studio so I can get back to work.

Does anyone know of any units that would fit my needs and be cost effective? One I can switch on when I want to use the studio, that would not suck out all the cool air but exchange it slowly, without ducts? HELP!!!!

Thank you.
