1.0 Functions of your HRV
Your Heat Recovery Ventilator eliminates the problems of excessive
humidity by exhausting stale and humid air to the outside and by drawing
in fresh air. The unit offers superior air quality and fresh air sensation, an
important factor to overall comfort, by eliminating the accumulation of
pollutants and humidity.
The unit also comes equipped with a heat recovery core which reduces
ventilating costs in winter.
The Heat Recovery Ventilator is a Ventilation system which carries out
three main operation:
1.1 Air Exchange
The unit exhausts stale and humid air from the house and replaces it
with fresh air from the outside.

85 to 141 l/s (180 to 300 cfm)
1.2 Heat Recovery
During winter, the unit recovers the heat contained in the stale air before
it is exhausted, and transfers it to the fresh air drawn from the outside
(reverse process in summer).

1.3 Circulation
(available with ULTIMA control only)
During the circulation mode, when the selected level of humidity is
reached, the unit stops to exchange air with the exterior. Continuous
circulation is thus undertaken inside the home and insures the purification
of the ambiant air. A mechanical filter traps the large dust particles
(those visible to the eye).

2.0 Diagrams of Air Flows
The direction of the air flow is indicated in each of the following
diagrams. Please note that the stale air never mixes with the fresh air.

3.0 Description of the Unit
1) Stale air intake port: is connected to the registers located in the
larger rooms of the house.
2) Fresh air port: brings fresh air from the outside into the unit.
3) Exhaust port: exhausts stale air to the outside, after the air has
transferred its heat inside the heat recovery core.
4) Distribution port: distributes fresh air into the house, after it has
absorbed the heat of the stale air in the heat recovery core.
5) Foam filter: traps the dust contained in the air and prevents the heat
recovery core from becoming obstructed.
6) Heat recovery core: is a counterflow type for 2000 HE, 3000 HE,
1.8 HE, 2.6 HE models and is a crossflow type for the other models.
It transfers the heat between the two air streams.
7) Blowers: draw fresh air from the outside and exhaust stale air to the
outside. The blower wheels are driven by two motors for 2000 HE,
3000 HE, 1.8 HE, 2.6 HE models. The other models have just one motor.
8) Capacitor: is indispensable to proper motor operation.
9) Condensation tray: is used to capture the water produced during
heat transfer and defrost. (in cold climate)
10) Drainage tube: is connected to the condensation tray and serves to
drain the water within.
11) Electronic control circuit: located inside the electrical box,
insures proper operation of the unit.
12) Automatic defrost unit: consists of one damper actuator,
dampers and the related controls. The defrost cycle is electronically
controlled in response to the outside temperature (-5°C (23°F) to
-40°C (-40°F)) and will increase in frequency as the temperature
decreases. Its duration is of 5 or 6 minutes according to models.
13) Control Connector: located inside the electrical box, allows to
connect the control and override switch as a timer, a dehumidistat or
a switch.
14) Electrical cord: for 120V electrical supply.

ADJUSTING AIR SUPPLY CONTROL
1)
Select speed “MIN.” or “MAX.” using slide switch.
• When “MIN.” (minimum speed) is selected, if the knob is set above
the click, the unit will exchange in low speed with the outside and
if it is set below the click, the unit will exchange on high speed with
the outside until the desired humidity level has been reached.
• When “MAX.” (maximum speed) is selected, the unit will exchange on
high speed with the outside either if the knob is set below or above the
click.
2)
To turn off the unit, slide the switch at the “OFF” position.
ADJUSTING HUMIDITY CONTROL
Setting during the summer months:
During this period, unless being afflicted with breathing problems,
using the humidity control is unnecessary. Set the slide switch to ‘’OFF’’.
(Do not exchange in day time; exchange at night time, if cool outside, or
if it is not raining.)
Setting during the fall, winter and spring months:
(When condensation appears on windows)
1) Determine the humidity level in your house (bring the knob counterclockwise
to its maximum position, then bring it back clockwise slowly until you
hear a “click”).
2) Set the knob to one line under this temperature level or “click”.
CAUTION
Do not select a temperature below -20°C (-4°F). This could lead to
excessive dryness in the air causing discomfort for the occupants.
It is possible (and normal) to experience condensation on your
windows when drastic changes in temperature happen (for

5.0 Maintenance
! WARNING
Risk of electric shock. Before performing any maintenance or
servicing, always disconnect the unit from its power source.
5.1 Regular Maintenance
1)
The motors are factory lubricated for life. Lubricating the bearings is
not recommended.
CAUTION
Because the unit is suspended, two people are recommended to
remove or install the heat recovery core.
Do not hold the heat recovery core using its plastic extrusions
as handles.
2) The heat recovery core must be handled with care. We recommend
that it be washed once a year, following the season of most intense
use, in order to insure maximum efficiency of the plastic partitions.
Allow the heat recovery core to soak for 3 hours in a solution of
warm water and mild soap. Rinse under a heavy stream of water.
CAUTION
Hot water and a strong detergent will damage the heat recovery core.
3)
The air filters are washable. Under normal conditions, we recommend
that they be washed every 3 months.
- Use a vacuum cleaner to remove the heaviest portion of accumulated
dust. Then wash in hot water.
4)
Regularly check the screen on the exterior intake hood and clean
when necessary. Also check during very cold weather because ice
may grow on the screen located at the exterior intake hood.
5.2 Annual Maintenance
NOTE: Ask your installer for an annual service contract.
Annual service should include:
1)
Cleaning filters, heat recovery core and the exterior air
intake/exhaust hood.
2)
Cleaning the wheels and the blower blades.
3)
Cleaning the condensation tray with soapy water (make sure that
the drain is not clogged).
4)
Running the system and checking the different operating modes.
5)
Measuring and calibrating rates of flow.
