Comfort 450

Ventilation requirement of up to 525 m3/h.

Comfort 450 is for anyone who wants ventilation with highly efficient heat recovery and comfort heating.

These systems extract hot, humid air from e.g. the kitchen, bathroom and utility room, at the same time removing dust particles, moisture and odours from the home. Furthermore, the energy from the extract air is used to heat the incoming air. Comfort 450 can replace 525 m³ air per hour.

The systems can be equipped with supplementary heating coils that can be connected to an electric or central heating system. The system will produce a comfortable incoming air temperature even in the coldest winter weather. When you buy a Comfort system, you get a comfortable and healthy indoor climate and cost savings on your heating bill.

Comfort 450 is suitable for locating in an attic space.

Electrical pre-heating element (Frost protection)

An electrical pre-heating element heats up the outdoor air before it enters the unit. This avoids having to defrost the unit, resulting in a loss of power.

There are temperature sensors supplied to be fitted in the ducts.

Electrical heating surface incl. regulation

When you fit an electrical heating surface, you can raise the fresh air temperature to the desired level at any time. The electrical heating surface is supplied ready to fit into the fresh air duct and, for easy fitting, the device is pre-fitted with all the required sensors.


Water heating element incl. regulation

The supply temperature can always be raised to the required level using a water heating element. The water heating element is designed to be built into the unit and must be connected to the primary heating supply. Supplied with two-way adjustment valve, temperature sensor and frost thermostat.


With a CO2-sensor installed, the ventilation speed can be pre-programmed with CTS 602 to run at a higher ventilation steps when CO2 reaches high level in the extract air. CO2-level is programmable.



An EM-box allows heat recovery from the air from the range hood and thereby helps to heat the supply air. The EM-box is equipped with a steel filter which efficiently cleans the range hood air of fat particles and thereby protects the system.


Expansion PCB

The expansion PCB provides additional functions for the CTS 602 control unit, e.g. controlling the EM-box.

Pollen filter F7

A pollen filter class F7 can be fitted in the unit. The pollen filter is fitted with the G4 plate filter.

Installation kit

The installation kit comprises of four vibration absorbers and a water trap for the condensation outlet. The water trap can be ordered separately.

Heating cable

To protect the condensation outlet against frost, a 3 metre-long self-regulating heating cable can be ordered.

Capacity of standard unit as a function of af qv and Pt, ext.

SFP values according to EN 13141-7 are for standard units with G4 filters and without heating element.

SFP values comprise the unit´s total power comsumption incl. control.

Conversion factior: J/m3 : 3600 = W/m3/h

Temperature efficiency

Temperature efficiency for units with counterflow heat exchanger according to EN308 (dry).

Temperature efficiency EN308:
ɳ t = (tsupply air-tfresh airt)/(textract air-tfresh air)

Sound data

Sound data for qV = 300 m3/h and Pt, ext = 100 Pa according to EN 9614-2 for surfaces and EN 5136 for ducts.

Sound output level LWA drops with falling air volume and falling back pressure.

Sound output level LpA at a given distance will depend on acoustic conditions in the place of installation.

The Comfort 450 is controlled using its CTS 602 operating panel, featuring a wide range of functions, e.g., menu-controlled operation, weekly programme settings, filter monitor with timer, fan speed adjustment, summer bypass (free cooling), supply-heating element control, error messages etc.

The CTS 602 comes with factory settings, including a default setting which can be customised to operational requirements to achieve optimum operation and utilisation of the system.

The operating panel must be placed in a dry, frost-free location, at least 1.5 m above floor level and at least 0.5 m from any corner. Avoid placing the panel on an external wall or in areas in direct sunlight.

Operating instructions for the CTS 602 can be found in a separate user manual supplied with the unit.
