Located in Pacifica, CA, Thermotech Enterprises, Inc. was founded in 1985 by Swedish immigrant, Krister Eriksson. He launched his career by servicing and repairing heat wheels prone to failure, often improving parts and “reinventing the wheel.” From this, Thermowheel energy recovery wheels were born. They are the latest technology in rotary air-to-air heat exchangers. They replace conventional heat wheels with high-performing energy recovery ventilation (ERV). Hundreds of Thermowheels, in both new installations and replacements, have been installed over the years with no failures, including the very first one in 1985. Today, Thermowheel is the industry standard for quality and energy savings.
