INTRODUCTION
A12520
HRVXXLVU
The Heat Recovery Ventilator (HRV) is used to exchange indoor
stale air with outside fresh air. The HRV unit is equipped with a
special heat recovery core which transfers sensible heat between
the fresh incoming air and stale exhaust air.
It is required to locate the HRV in a conditioned space. Special
attention should be given to condensate drain, duct application,
balancing the HRV, and locating unit for easy access and routine
maintenance. The cross--flow design core allows entering and
leaving air streams to transfer heat energy without mixing.
LOCATION
Inspect Equipment
Move carton to final installation location. Remove the HRV from
carton taking care not to damage unit. Remove all packaging and
inspect unit for damage. Remove parts bag from inside unit. File
claim with shipping company if shipment is damaged or
incomplete.

A12506
In the absence of a forced--air system and a typical duct system
layout, the HRV can be applied as an independent or stand alone
unit. To ensure comfort, this type of application involves running
both fresh--air and return--air registers (or stale--air pickup registers)
throughout the home.

CARBON MONOXIDE POISONING HAZARD
Failure to follow this warning could result in personal injury
or death.
PROPERTY DAMAGE HAZARD
Failure to follow this caution may result in minor property
damage from sweating duct or loss of unit efficiency and
capacity.
Do not install return--air registers (or stale--air pickup
registers) in same room as gas furnace or water heater.
Fresh--air registers are normally located in bedrooms, dining room,
living room, and basement. It is recommended that registers be
placed 6 to 12 in. (152 to 305 mm) from the ceiling on an interior
wall and airflow directed toward ceiling. If registers are floor
installed, airflow should be directed toward the wall.
Return--air (or stale--air pickup registers) are normally located to
draw from kitchen, bathroom, basement, or other rooms where
stale--air can exist.
Proper size and type of registers must be used to minimize pressure
drop. The velocity of airflow through register should not be above
400 ft/minute.
Maximum length of duct for the system should be designed
according to the highest speed of the unit. Refer to specifications
listed in unit Product Data for ventilation capacities.
Forced--Air Application
Most HRV applications will be installed in conjunction with new
or existing forced--air system. To operate properly, the fresh--air
supply and stale--air return from HRV connect directly to return--air
duct system. This is how the HRV distributes fresh air and removes
stale air from inside of building (see Fig. 4). For these installations,
furnace or fan coil blower must be interlocked and operate
continuously whenever HRV is energized.
Interlock relay is now integrated into the control and is designed to
interlock HRV with indoor equipment blower. When HRV is
energized, R and G circuit inside of furnace or fan coil will
energize.
NOTE: The fresh air from HRV is introduced into return--air duct
at a point no less than 10 ft (3m) upstream of furnace or fan coil.
This connection should be direct (see Fig. 4). This is to allow
incoming fresh--air to mix before entering indoor equipment.
CAUTION
If HRV duct work is installed in an unconditioned space,
insulated flexible duct is required.
Insulated flexible duct is required on both fresh--air inlet and
exhaust--air outlet ducts connecting to exterior wall. When
using insulated flexible duct, the vapor barrier of the flexible ducts
must be taped very tight to prevent condensation problems. To
reduce pressure drop, stretch the flex duct and support it in a proper
manner to avoid reduced airflow.
When connecting the HRV to a return--air duct system, insulated
flexible duct can be used. However, when metal or rigid ducts are
applied use approximately 18--in. (457 mm) of flexible duct at
HRV ports for fresh--air supply, and stale--air return. When using
metal duct from fresh--air supply to system duct work, the metal
duct should be insulated. This can act as a silencer when
connecting ducts to return--air duct system. This should eliminate
transmission of noise or vibration from unit to main duct system.
NOTE: Balancing dampers should be installed in stale--air exhaust
and fresh air intake ducts before connecting to the HRVXXLVU
units. Make sure both balancing dampers are left in fully open
position before connecting the ducts to these ports. See Integrated
balancing damper illustration.
Condensate Drain
To connect condensate drain, proceed as follows:
1. Insert sleeved grommets into bottom of unit using the gasket washer and nut (see Fig. 5).
2. Cut two sections of plastic tubing, about 12--in. (305 mm)
long and attach them to each drain.
3. Join the two short sections of plastic tubing to the “T” connector and the main tube as shown.
4. Make a loop in the tubing below the “T” connector to create
a trap to prevent sewer gases from entering the ventilation
system (see Fig. 5).
3
5. Connect unit drain to building’s main drain. Provide slight
slope from unit for run--off.
The unit operates continuously when LOW or HIGH is selected
(see Table 1).

Locate and Install Exterior Hoods
IMPORTANT: To prevent condensation problems, insulated
flexible ducts are required on both fresh--air inlet and exhaust--air
outlet ducts connecting between HRV and exterior wall.
Fresh--air intake and stale--air exhaust must be separated by at least
6 ft (1.8 m). Fresh--air intake must be positioned at least 10 ft. (3
m) from nearest dryer vent, furnace exhaust, driveway, gas meter,
or oil fill pipe. Fresh--air intake must be positioned as far as
possible from garbage containers and potential chemical fumes.
When possible, it is advised to locate the intake and exhaust hoods
on same side of house or building. The intake and exhaust hoods
should never be located on interior corners or in dead air pockets
(see Fig. 4). Both intake and exhaust hoods must be 18 in. (457
mm) from ground and at least 12 in. (305 mm) above anticipated
snow level.
After selecting proper hood locations, make appropriate size hole
through exterior wall, pass flexible duct through hole and insert
hood tube into duct. Tape duct vapor barrier tightly around hood
tube and insert assembly back into wall and fasten securely.
WALL CONTROL
Location
The HRV wall controls are unique to HRV and must be installed
for proper unit operation.
Four wall control options are available:
1. Basic Control
2. OneTouch Control
3. Standard Control
4. Automatic Control
Basic Control Operation
The basic control contains a 3 position slide switch which is used
to manually select OFF, LOW, and HIGH speed blower operation.
Standard Control Operation
The standard wall control has 3 basic modes of operation, OFF,
LOW, and INTERMITTENT. Be sure that all modes of operation
are fully functional. See Table 3 indicating standard control
operation.
1. With switch off, the HRV is inoperative and the LED is out.
2. With switch on LOW, the HRV continuously exchanges air
with outside. If control is satisfied, blower will run in low
speed, otherwise, blower will run on high speed. The LED
is illuminated all the time.
3. With switch on INTERMITTENT, the HRV exchanges air
with outside on high--speed blower, and unit shuts down
when control is satisfied. The ON LED is illuminated all the
time, and AIR EXCHANGE LED is illuminated only when
unit is running. This mode is ideal for maintaining proper
humidity levels when no one is home.
Automatic Control Operation
This control contains an adjustable dehumidistat and push button
switch to cycle between 3 modes of operation. There are 5 LEDs to
indicate mode of operation (see Table 4).

NOTE: This control is designed to be used primarily with
installations which are independent of a forced air system.
1. Initially the switch is off. All LEDs are off and HRV is inoperative
2. First push of mode button puts HRV into intermittent mode.
The HRV operates at high speed when there is a call for dehumidification. Intermittent and exchange LEDs are illuminated. When dehumidistat is satisfied, HRV shuts down
and exchange LED goes out.
3. Next push of mode button puts system in continuous mode.
Continuous and exchange LEDs remain on. The HRV operates at high--speed blower during calls for dehumidification
and low--speed when dehumidistat is satisfied.
4. Next push of mode button and exchange puts system in circulation mode. HRV operates in high speed at all times. Circulation LED remains on. When there is a call for dehumidification, exchange LED is on and HRV exchanges air with
outside. When dehumidistat is satisfied, HRV dampers close
which recirculates indoor air. The exchange LED goes off.
5. The maintenance light illuminates every 3 months to indicate filter should be cleaned. It is reset by opening the door to
the HRV.
NOTE: The standard and automatic controls sense humidity not
temperature. Either control must be located in an area where it will
continually monitor fresh air circulating within the home. Install
HRV wall control as close as possible to main system thermostat
and follow same guidelines as installing a thermostat, (locate
approximately 5 ft. (1.5 m) above floor, mount on an inside
partitioning wall, etc.).
NOTE: The HRV may be controlled using the Infinity System
Control. The HRV may be connected using either a NIM or a
4--Zone Damper Module. See the appropriate instructions if using
the NIM of a 4--Zone Damper Module for connection instructions.
Blower interlock relay is not needed for use with the Infinity
system control. The Infinity System Control will simultaneously
control the HRV and the indoor blower.
Push Button Timers may be used and are connected to the HRV as
shown in Fig. 6. However, the Infinity system should be set to
continuous fan to ensure that the fresh air is circulated in the home.
In a Zoned System, at least one zone should be set to continuous
fan.

Humidity Selector
The humidity selector is a built--in dehumidistat designed to
properly control the level of humidity in the house during the
winter months. This control helps avoid condensation problems in
upper northern regions where indoor humidity is a problem during
the winter season.
NOTE: This control is not to be confused with a dehumidistat
used during the summer months to control high relative indoor
humidity.
A push button timer can be used to override the wall control and
put the HRV into high speed for 20 minutes. Connect switches in
parallel and connect leads to HRV terminals I, OC, and OL (see
Fig. 8). Push button locations are ideal in special activity areas,
such as, bathroom, or kitchen, where high--speed exhaust operation
is needed for a short period of time.
NOTE: The 20 minute timer will not function properly unless
HRV wall control is applied and working correctly. Timing
function is internal to electronic circuit board, it is activated by a
momentary contact between OC and OL. The I connection is to
illuminate the push button. The maximum number of push button
timers that can be applied is 5.
60 Minute Adjustable Timer
A 60 minute adjustable timer can also be used to override wall
control and put HRV into high--speed operation for a select amount
of time. Connect timer in parallel with push button timers, or to
HRV terminals OC and OL (see Fig. 8).
The 60 minute timer will provide a minimum of 10 minutes, and a
maximum of 60 minutes of ventilation at high speed.

BALANCING HRV
Balancing Dampers
Balancing intake and exhaust airflow is very important for proper
system operation and optimum performance when applying an
HRV. Unit balancing prevents a positive and/or negative pressure
within the home. Balancing the HRV is done by applying
temporary flow collars and permanent balancing dampers to the
fresh air intake and stale air exhaust ducts (See Fig. 9).
Airflow is determined by connecting a magnehelic gauge to the
temporary flow collar (see Fig. 10). Both flow collars and
magnehelic gauge are included in the accessory start--up balancing
kit.
If supply--air from outside is greater than exhaust--air from the
house, an imbalance can result over pressurizing the home. If
exhaust--air is greater than supply--air, combustion appliances may
back draft, bringing exhaust fumes into the house. A balanced
condition will ensure optimum performance, provide satisfied
customers, and avoid expensive callbacks.
Before proceeding with balancing, all windows, doors, and
fireplace flues should be tightly closed. No exhaust systems such as
range top exhausts, dryer exhaust, fume hoods, bath or roof fans
should be in operation. The forced--air furnace (if used for
circulation) should be operating in continuous fan mode for normal
operating speed.
The dampers for the HRVXXLVU are field supplied and should be
permanently located in fresh--air intake and stale--air exhaust ducts
between HRV and exterior wall (see Fig. 9). Some field
modification may be required to ensure proper installation of
balancing dampers while located in flexible duct. Insulating over
these dampers is strongly recommended after balancing is complete
to prevent condensation problems.
Flow Collar
Flow collars are temporary and should be installed as close to HRV
as possible and in straightest sections of duct to ensure accuracy
(see Fig. 11 and 12). If only 1 flow collar is available, install collar
in stale--air duct of HRV, and record airflow. Next, install collar in
the fresh--air duct and record airflow. If 2 flow collars are available,
it will be much easier to read airflow and properly adjust dampers
to balance unit.
With speed control at maximum speed (high--speed operation) and
continuous air exchange occurring with outside, connect hoses
from flow collar to a magnehelic gauge (see Fig. 10). The gauge
must be leveled and zeroed before use to read accurately. If needle
falls below zero, reverse hose connections.

Fig. 12 -- Balancing HRVXXLVU
The ventilation capacity of an HRV unit while at maximum speed
is defined according to greatest total airflow required. These
methods are derived from the Canadian National Building Code
1995 version and the CSA F326.1 revision.
The following 2 methods can be used to evaluate the approximate
ventilation needs of a house. Accuracy of calculations are
dependent upon the information available and knowing critical
measurements of the structure (see Fig. 13).
METHOD 1
To calculate approximate ventilation:
The sum of rooms X 10 CFM per room, plus 20 CFM for a
master bedroom or basement.
Example: 11 rooms X 10 CFM + 2 X 20 CFM = 150 CFM.
NOTE: The master bedroom and basement are not included in
first part of this equation, but figured in at second part of equation.
METHOD 2
To calculate approximate ventilation:
Referencing same example (see Fig. 13).
Total cu ft X 0.3 per hr = total. Take total and divide by 60 to
get CFM.
Example:
1320 sq ft X 8 ft in height = 10560 cu ft per floor
10560 cu ft x 3 floors = 31680 total cu ft in house
31680 cu ft X 0.3 air change per hr = 9500 cu ft
9500 cu ft ÷ 60 minimum per hr = 160 CFM.
Measure exhaust air first, it is typically the lowest pressure due to
nature of system and duct work. Next, measure fresh air. If fresh air
reading is higher than exhaust reading, adjust damper until reading
is same. If reading is lower, return to exhaust damper and adjust to
obtain same reading. You can use label on flow collar to convert
static pressure into airflow.
Once HRV is balanced and dampers are adjusted to equalize
airflow, use tape or drive screws to prevent damper blades from
moving. Remove flow collars and secure ducts. This procedure
should be repeated to ensure unit is balanced properly.
NOTE: The flow collar directional arrow (on flow collar) must be
oriented in the airflow direction of unit.
NOTE: Some field modification may be required to ensure proper
temporary installation of flow collar during balancing when
insulated flexible duct is used.

CONTROL BOARD OPERATION
CARE AND MAINTENANCE
Board Function
!
NOTE: To ensure proper operation of HRV, configuration
jumpers are located on electronic control board and must match
configuration setup shown on Fig. 14 under Jumper Table.
Jumpers are factory set and do not require any changes unless
control board is replaced. If control board is replaced, or you
encounter unusual start--up operation, check jumpers to make sure
they are located properly (see Fig. 14).
ELECTRICAL SHOCK HAZARD
Failure to follow this warning could result in personal injury
or death.
Before installing or servicing system, always turn off, tag and
lockout main power to system. There may be more than 1
disconnect switch.
Defrost
The HRV continually monitors the outside air temperature. If the
outside air is at or below 23°F (--5°C), the HRV will initiate a
defrost cycle by closing the outside air damper and recirculating
warm indoor air through the heat recovery core. This happens
every 32 min. with 6 minute defrost cycle. During this process,
core is defrosted without the use of electric strip heat. At 5°F
(--15°C), unit will defrost for 6 minutes every 32 min. At --17°F
(--27°C), the unit will sense a need to defrost every 20 minutes with
a 6 minute cycle. See the Troubleshooting section for a control
logic explanation. See Fig. 15.

CAUTION
CUT HAZARD
Failure to follow this caution may result in personal injury.
Sheet metal parts may have sharp edges or burrs. Use care
and wear appropriate protective clothing and gloves when
handling parts.
Door
HRV door can be removed by unlatching brief case style latches,
then slide door to the right and remove it from hinges. Door must
be in place and secured shut for proper operation.
Filter
Filters in HRV are washable and should be cleaned every 3
months. Use a vacuum cleaner to remove heaviest portion of
accumulated dust, then wash in lukewarm water. Allow filter to
completely dry before reinstalling. A dirty air filter will cause
excessive strain on blower motor. Never operate unit without a
filter. Vacuum out debris.
In addition, regularly check and clean screens on exterior intake
and exhaust hoods when necessary.

CAUTION
UNIT COMPONENT DAMAGE HAZARD
Failure to follow this caution may result in unit component
damage.
Off and Intermittent/Off Mode
DO NOT clean filters in a dishwasher and DO NOT dry them
with a heating appliance or permanent damage will result.
When HRV is Off, K1 relay is open, and K5 relay is energized
which closes outside air damper (see Logic Diagram in Fig. 14).
High--Speed Air Exchange
When high--speed air exchange occurs, K1 and K2 relays are
energized and K5 relay is de--energized. This opens low--speed
contacts, and closes high--speed contact on K2 relay. This also
opens contact on K5 relay which opens outside air damper. Then,
115VAC is applied between orange and gray wires on Molex plug
(pins 1 and 6) and blower motor runs in high--speed operation (see
Logic Diagram in Fig. 14).
Blower Motor and Wheel
Low--Speed Air Exchange
HRV unit is equipped with special heat recovery core and must be
handled with care. We recommend that it be washed once a year
following the season of most intense use. This will ensure
maximum efficiency of the plastic partitions within the core.
Allow heat recovery core to soak for 3 hours in a solution of warm
water and mild soap. Rinse under stream of water. Hot water and
strong detergent will damage core and should NOT be used.
When low--speed air exchange occurs, K1 Relay is energized
which closes the contacts. K2 and K5 relays are de--energized. This
keeps low--speed contacts closed and high--speed contacts open on
K2 relay, and opens outdoor air damper. 120VAC is applied
between Red and Gray wires on Molex plug (pins 1 and 4) and
blower motor runs in low--speed operation.
HRV blower motors are factory lubricated for life. Lubricating
bearings is not recommended. However, inspect and clean any
accumulated dirt and grease from blower motor and wheel
annually.

NOTE: Reference Table 7 Troubleshooting Chart
This can be a quick guide in resolving unit problems. It is also
recommended to review and understand Wall Control Board
Operation and Care and Maintenance sections before continuing.
There are 3 main parts to focus on when troubleshooting HRV
unit: wall control, electronic control board and blower motor.
Wall Control
Typically, the wall control is either good or it is bad. Use Table 1,
2, 3, or 4 to determine if wall control is operating correctly. Use
Fig. 7 to check control wire connections.
NOTE: The electronic control board and wall control operate on
12vdc.
Control Board
Electronic control board must have wall control attached before
unit will function properly (except for units equipped with manual
switch such as the new horizontal units). Also, configuration
jumpers located on control board must match configuration setup
shown on Fig. 14 under Jumper Table. In addition, outside air
thermistor must be connected to control board for it to operate
properly. See Table 6, Temperature/Ohm Relationship, for valid
temperature range.
Blower Motor
The HRV blower motor operates on 115VAC, with 2--speed
operation.
The easiest way to check blower speed operation is to use the wall
control and initiate a low--speed blower and high--speed blower
operation.
NOTE: If there is a short circuit or an open circuit at thermistor,
CPU will go into a 5 minute defrost cycle every 20 minutes. This
feature is not there on older board versions with 3 pin jumpers.

Defrost Cycle
Defrost cycle is controlled by a thermistor which is located in the
fresh--air intake passage (the thermistor unit is connected to J4 of
control module (see Fig. 14). When defrost temperature sensor
detects the need for defrost, K5 relay will close for 6 minutes while
K1 and K2 remain energized.
This closes the outdoor air damper while running HRV blower on
high--speed. This process recirculates warm indoor air through heat
recovery core which melts any frost that has formed. Water created
in this process is collected by HRV and drained away. Frequency
of the defrost cycle depends on outdoor temperature (see Table 11).

If defrost is not working properly, check for proper damper
operation. To do this, turn unit to OFF position. Damper should
close.
Safety Feature
This new control has an added safety feature. If microprocessor
does not detect the thermistor or detects a short circuit, unit will
automatically go into a 6 minute defrost cycle every 20 minutes.
Defrost Check
1. Make sure defrost cable is properly connected into J4.
2. Make sure thermistor assembly is correct. Measure thermistor temperature reading with multimeter. Select multimeter
DC measurement scale 0--20v. At connector J4 (without removing thermistor cable), measure voltage between pins of
thermistor cable. Depending on temperature of outside air
intake, values should correspond with those in Table 9.
3. If reading is not correct (reading 0v for short circuit or 5v
for open circuit), change thermistor assembly.
Advanced Debugging
Defrost can be simulated using the following procedures:
1. Unplug unit from 115VAC.
2. Disconnect thermistor assembly from J4.
3. Replug unit in 115VAC and select high--speed exchange.
4. Defrost should start within 2 minutes after high--speed exchange has been initiated.
5. After test unplug unit.
6. Connect thermistor cable to J4.
7. Replug unit back in 115VAC.
Control Module Jumpers
Jumpers on the control module give exact configuration to HRV
micro--controller. If there is a mistake in the jumper configuration,
it can cause improper unit operation. This control has a simplified
jumper selection mode. Jumper selection is done by the presence or
absence of jumper at specific location (see Tables 12 and Table 13).
!
WARNING
ELECTRICAL SHOCK HAZARD
Failure to follow this warning could result in personal injury
or death.
Always disconnect unit from 115VAC prior to making any
jumper change. If unit is not disconnected, micro--controller
will never see jumper change.
Error Signaling
Two types of error can be signaled by the wall control (automatic
wall control only). In case of error, indicators on wall control will
flash.
When error occurs, set dehumidistat at 80% position. This will
enable you to properly troubleshoot problems.
Type 1—Loss of Memory (Auto Model Only)
All indicators flash rapidly (rate of about once very sec). When this
occurs, reset power and check if problem still exists. If indicators
are still flashing, check red wire for shorting on another
component. If error still exists, wall control has lost its memory.
Replace wall control.
The defective wall control still works even when flashing, it is
working in backup mode. Original modes of wall control are
replaced by backup mode (see Table 14).

All indicators flashing at a rate of about once every 8 sec.
Communication is not properly entered or is not working.
CASE 1
User changes the mode on wall control and HRV does not respond
to command (OFF, LOW, or HIGH speed). Check all wires to wall
control particularly red wire (see Table 15).
CASE 2
User changes the mode but, HRV does not respond. All indicators
flash at a rate of about once every 8 sec. Check all wires to wall
control particularly green wire. If problem still exists, test wall
control with 5 ft (1.5 m) of wire from HRV. If this works, change
wall control module inside HRV.
RESET
To reset HRV, proceed as follows:
1. Unplug HRV from 115VAC.
2. Wait 15 sec.
3. Plug HRV into 115VAC.
