## 5. Lossnay Energy Recovery Calculation

The following diagram shows the various air conditions when ventilation air is introduced through the Lossnay Core. If a
conventional sensible energy recovery unit is used alone and is assumed to have the same energy recovery efficiency as
Lossnay, the condition of the air supplied to the room is expressed by Point A in the figure. Point A shows that the air is very
humid in summer and very dry in winter.
The air supplied to the room with Lossnay is indicated by Point S in the figure. The air is precooled and dehumidified in the
summer, and preheated and humidified in the winter before it is introduced to the room.
