Robert Serafin, Curt Griffin and Darrell Smith represent the East, West and Midwest as area service managers for those territories.

Ken Brown, training manager, brings eight years of instructional design and nine years of undergraduate teaching experience to the Atlanta Training Center. With more than 27 years of HVAC sales experience, John Matson joined the sales department as Northeast regional manager.

The company also expanded its sales team with David Giles (West) and John Wright (Central) as area sales engineers; Ruben Willmarth as regional sales manager for the western United States; Dennis Cobb as the new area manager in Florida; and Dan Keck and Will Scott as new area sales managers in the central United States.

In other news, Mitsubishi Electric HVAC introduced an advanced line of Energy Recovery Ventilators (ERVs) that improve indoor environmental quality (IEQ) in buildings and meet requirements of ASHRAE standards 62 and 90.1. The new Lossnay® ERVs recapture cooling and heating energy, control humidity extremes and are compatible with Mr. Slim and CITY MULTI® HVAC systems, according to Chuck Applebee, product manager. “Lossnay enables users to target different zones with varying heating and cooling needs on a case-by-case basis.”

These models transfer fresh and exhaust airstreams through adjacent passages in the Lossnay core with minimal cross contamination. The core is constructed of a specially treated cellulose fiber membrane that keeps the two streams apart, while exchanging energy to precondition the air.

Within the LGH-F-RX3 series, four ERV models offer CFM levels from 300-1200 CFM and two remote controllers - one for use with Mitsubishi Electric's M-NET controls network and one for independent control. Lossnay ERVs are compatible with TG-2000 software, LMAP LonWorks device and BACnet.
