Introduction
Congratulations on your selection of the LIFEBREATH Clean Air Furnace (CAF). This is a very advanced unit
that combines the outstanding efficiency and economy of the water heater/airhandler concept, plus the
tremendous health benefits of year-round fresh air ventilation in every room of your house.
With the addition of LIFEBREATH Turbulent Flow Precipitator (TFP) Air Cleaner (optional) you will
have the ultimate in comfort and healthy indoor air quality.
You will notice that the heated air in your home feels more comfortable than air heated by a conventional
furnace. One reason for this is that LIFEBREATH's hydronically heated air is uniform and temperate... no short
blasts of hot air or hot and cold temperature spikes. In this regard, the air flowing from your hot air vents will
not feel as hot to the touch as air from a conventional furnace.
With a high efficiency, adequately sized hot water heater/boiler, you will always have plenty of hot water for
showers and baths, washing dishes and clothes, and all other normal domestic hot water needs. If there is
an unusually high demand for hot water, such as filling a large hot tub, than all you need to do is allow more
time for the task so the water heater/boiler can keep up to its job of providing hot water for the heating
system as well as other household uses.
Once it is correctly installed, safety will never be an issue with your LIFEBREATH furnace. No flames, fumes
or flue gases to be concerned about. Your domestic hot water heater/boiler now provides the heat source for
your furnace.
This Operating and Installation Guide will help you learn about your LIFEBREATH Clean Air Furnace quickly
and easily. The table of contents will show you where to find information on every feature of this unit along with
easy to understand operating instructions. If, however, you do encounter a question that is not covered in this
Guide you should call the LIFEBREATH dealer who installed your furnace. Chances are that he will be able
to give you a satisfactory answer but if he is unable to do so then we invite you to contact us directly.
Nutech Energy Systems Inc.
HRV - Aluminum Core
A Heat Recovery Ventilator (HRV) is designed to provide fresh air into a building while exhausting an equal
amount of stale air. During the winter months, the incoming cold fresh air is warmed by utilizing the heat
recovered from the stale air before it is exhausted to the outdoors. During summer months when the indoor
space is air conditioned, the Heat Recovery Ventilator will help in cooling the incoming fresh air with the stale
air that is being exhausted.
ERV - Enthalpic Paper Core
An Energy Recovery Ventilator (ERV) is designed to provide fresh air into a building while exhausting an
equal amount of stale air. An ERV is designed for use in warm humid areas with heavy air conditioning use.
The ERV will transfer both sensible and latent heat from the incoming fresh air to the outgoing stale air thereby
reducing the load (due to ventilation) on the air conditioning system.
ERVs are not suitable for climates where the temperature drops below -4˚C (25˚F).

Description and Purpose
IMPORTANT NOTE
The purpose of this manual is to act as an installation guide only for the LIFEBREATH
Clean Air Furnace. Manufacturers' instructions for other components, such as the water
heater/boiler, must be followed.
All national and local code requirements must be met when installing a LIFEBREATH
Clean Air Furnace. Be sure to consult the proper authorities.
Note: Temperatures greater than 130 °F (54°C) pose a serious risk of scalding individuals
running domestic hot water for potable use.
This appliance complies with IAS Canada Inc. Requirement CR95-003, Additional
Requirements for Fan Coil Units for use with Potable Water Heaters.
All piping and components connected to this appliance shall be suitable for use with
potable water.
Toxic chemicals, such as used for boiler treatment, shall not be introduced into the
potable water heater system.
When using this system, and water for space heating, is required to be at a higher
temperature than for other uses, an anti-scald valve shall be used to ensure water for
other uses is reduced in temperature to minimize a scald hazard potential.
Combining two or more end uses such as space heating and the heating of domestic hot
water in a single system has the potential to increase efficiency and reduce overall
capital costs. However, the proper design, installation, and commissioning of these
systems is critical if these advantages are to be realized.
This manual provides a guideline of good engineering practice in the design, installation
and commissioning of Integrated Combo Systems. The guidelines in the manual are
designed for residential forced warm air Integrated Combo Systems which utilize
domestic water heaters or boilers and the LIFEBREATH furnace. Heating and cooling
loads shall be calculated in accordance with recognized Residential Heat Loss and Heat
Gain Calculation methods. Duct design shall comply with recognized Residential Air
System Design methods. This manual provides worksheets to be used for the purpose of
sizing residential water heaters and the combo furnace.
The LIFEBREATH Clean Air Furnace is a volume ventilator system and is not intended to
replace a fully ducted Heat Recovery Ventilation (HRV) system. Independent exhaust fans
should be used for bathrooms and kitchen range hoods.

Combo System Basic Principles
Closed/Open Combo System
From the aspect of delivery of domestic hot
water and space heating, the Open and Closed
systems operate the same. A system becomes
closed when a backflow prevention valve or
check valve is installed in the cold water piping
upstream of the water heater. A backflow
prevention valve will prevent the pressure created
when water is heated in the water heater, from
being relieved into the cold water system.
Therefore, an expansion tank (or equivalent
device) may be installed as part of any closed
system. The operations of the valve and
expansion tank are discussed later in this
section of this manual.
Note: Water systems that incorporate a pressure
tank (well systems) are normally open systems.

Operation
Air System
When the thermostat calls for heat, the
circulation pump is activated and hot water is
drawn from the top of the water heater through
the air handler, and then returned to the water
heater. There should be at least a 20˚F (11˚C)
temperature drop between the hot water
supplied to the air handler and the returning
water temperature. If the temperature drop is
less then 20˚F (11˚C) two things may happen:
A circulation fan draws cool house air at approx.
70˚F (21˚C) from the return ductwork, forces
it through the water coil where it is heated, and
then distributes it to the various rooms of the
house through the supply ductwork.
Water Piping
The Piping and fittings used to connect the water
heater and air handler must be sized to handle
the volume of hot water required by the air
handler within the pressure limitations of the
circulation pump. All piping, fittings solders, and
fluxes must be acceptable for use with domestic
hot water.
1. Mixing of warm return water with the hot
water within the water heater (no tank
stratification), which will result in a lower hot
water supply temperature.
2. A water heater thermostat temperature
differential (between on and off) is approximately
18˚F (10˚C). Therefore, if the return water is not
cool enough, it may not activate the water heater
thermostat, which causes the burner to operate.
All of the water in the water heater will be cooled
before the burner begins to operate. This may
cause large swings in the delivered hot water
temperature, causing poor space heating
performance, fluctuating domestic water
temperatures and effectively reducing the supply
of domestic hot water.
Note: Chemicals (such as boiler system additives)
cannot be added to the system because water passing
through the heating loop re-enters the domestic
water systems.
Circulation Pump
The circulation pump is factory installed within
the air handler. The water flow rate will vary
depending on the pumps performance and
the head pressure (resistance) of the complete
heating loop system.
Call for Domestic Hot Water and
Space Heating Operation
When both return water from the space heating
loop and new cold water (replacing domestic
water being used) enters the water heater, the
mixed entering water is cool enough to activate
the thermostat quickly. In this situation, the water
heater must be capable of satisfying the
combined need for hot water (domestic hot water
and space heating) at the same time.
6
Manual Valves
There are a number of manual valves required for
the system to operate properly and safely. These
valves are used as shut off valves, drain valves
and throttling valves. They can be globe, gate,
ball or balancing type valves.
malfunction with age. Gate valves tend to be less
expensive than the other type of valves.
The globe valve can be used as a shut off, drain
or throttling valve. Even in the open position, the
valve is fairly restrictive to flow. It has a much
greater equivalent length (resistance) than the
other types of valves.
The ball valve can be used as a shut off or drain
valve but not a throttling (balancing) valve. When
in the open position, a full bore ball valve has
very little resistance to flow, and these valves
tend to be both the least expensive and the
least susceptible to seizing over time. Do not
use reduced bore ball valves as they are very
restrictive to water flow.
The gate valve can be used as a shut off or drain
valve. When in the open position, there is very
little resistance to flow. Gate valves have a
greater susceptibility to chatter (noise) and
The balancing valve can be used as a throttling
valve. It can make small flow changes easily and
has lower resistance than a globe valve. This
valve will be considerable more expensive.

system. The drain valve should be near the low
point of the return piping system upstream of the
shut off valve and is preferred to be near the
water heater.
One valve (a) on the cold water side of the
water heater upstream of the heating loop
connection. This valve has the ability to
isolate the hot water (domestic and space
heating) from the household cold water
supply. This valve is required on every water
heater whether or not the water heater is
used for space heating.
•
One valve (b) on the hot water supply side
of the heating loop, downstream of its
connection to the domestic water.
•
One valve (c) on the return side of the
heating loop upstream of its connection to the
domestic cold water.
Throttling Valve
The throttling (balancing) valve is used to reduce
the water flow rate and thereby increase the
water temperature drop. This is done to ensure
proper activation of the water heater thermostat.
This valve should be a globe or balancing valve.
Check Valves
A spring loaded check valve is required in the
heating loop to help minimize thermo-siphoning
of hot water throughout the heating loop when
heating is not called for and cold water back
flowing through the heating loop when domestic
hot water is used. The valve will have a water
flow direction arrow marked on it’s exterior
surface and must be installed with that arrow
pointing downstream.
The two valves in the heating loop allow the
heating loop to be isolated for service or repair.

Expansion Tanks
Note: There are a number of pressure balancing
valves and mixing valves on the market which are
not certified as a anti-scalding device.
Expansion tanks are only required for “Closed
Systems”. The expansion tank has an air
bladder, which will contract to relieve pressure in
the system. Pressure is created in the closed
system when water is heated in the water heater.
Expansion tanks should always be connected to
the cold water piping between the water heater
shut off valve and the cold water inlet to the
water heater. Follow manufacturers instructions
for sizing and installation.

EXPANSION TANKS
Although the UCG (Unified Canadian Guideline)
does not require these controls, a few building
codes and municipal by-laws do. They are used
to provide periodic circulation of water through
the space heating loop during the summer and
other periods of infrequent use. The concern is
that water which remains stationary in the
heating loop during the summer may be less
than desirable as domestic hot water when it is
returned to the water heater at system startup
in the fall.
Anti-Scald Valve
An anti-scald valve is required when the water
heater thermostat is set above 140˚F (60˚C).
Also, an anti-scald valve may be required for all
installations by the “authority having jurisdiction”.
The valve is placed in the hot water supply
piping from the water heater downstream of the
heating loop connection and upstream of any
domestic hot water connection.
Thermostats
The purpose of the valve is to limit the maximum
temperature available for domestic hot water by
mixing hot water from the water heater with cold
water from the municipal supply.
There are two thermostats controlling every
combo system, the water heater thermostat
controlling the hot water temperature and the room
thermostat controlling the room air temperature.
The Anti-Scald valve must be thermostatically
controlled and approved to the ASSE standard No.
1016 and 1017 for use as an anti-scald device.
9
Water Heater Thermostat
The water heater thermostat is set by the
installing contractor to provide the required
temperature at the hot water outlet of the water
heater. It is important that a warning label be
place near the water heater thermostat telling
the homeowner not to change the thermostat
setting. The label is included with the furnace.
The hot water inlet temperature is typically 140˚F
(60˚C). If this temperature must be increased
to achieve higher outputs from the furnace
an anti-scald valve must be used to prevent
domestic hot water temperatures above
140˚F (60˚C). The manufacturer of the
Hot Water Tank should be consulted for
temperatures higher than 140˚F.
Room Thermostat
Hot Water Flow Rate
The room thermostat controls both the water
circulation pump and the air circulation fan. It
should be on a centrally located, inside wall
away from any source of heat such as diffusers,
appliances and direct sunlight.
The hot water entering the water coil is the
source of heat to the air handler. The effect of
changing the amount of water entering the coil is
the same as changing the water temperature.
As water flow is reduced, the output of the
air handler and the air temperature rise will
both be lowered.
Energy Saving Room Thermostat
Air Handler Return Air Temperature
A set back thermostat or “smart stat” can be
used with a combo system, but care must be
taken in the timing of the temperature changes.
The timing of morning warm up should be early
enough that the desired air temperature has
been reached before the people begin to use
domestic hot water. The highest demand for
space heating is during the morning warm up
and the highest demand for domestic hot water
is during morning showers. Even if the water
heater is properly sized, it may not be able to
meet this combined load. Therefore, large set
backs should be avoided.
The return air temperature entering the air
handler is approx. 60˚F (33˚C) below the
hot water inlet temperature. If the return air
temperature entering the air handler is reduced,
more heat transfer will occur and the output of
the air handler will increase.
Air Handler Air Flow Rate
The air entering the air handler can only be
warmed by the temperature difference between
the hot water and the cool air. As the volume
(CFM (L/s)) of air is reduced, the amount of heat
which can be transferred is also reduced.
Air Handler Output Capacity
There are four factors that will significantly affect
the heating output of the air handler.
They are:
•
•
•
•
Air Handler Temperature Rise
Hot water supply temperature (EWT)
In a fuel fired furnace, the combustion gases
can be 1000˚F (538˚C) above the return air
temperature. These units typically have a
temperature rise from 50˚F (10˚C) to 90˚F (32˚C)
and therefore delivers air at the diffuser at 120˚F
(49˚C) to 160˚F (71˚C).
Hot water flow rate (GPM)
Air Handler return air temperature
Air Handler air flow rate (CFM)
10
With an Integrated Combo System, the hot water
temperature is approx. 130˚F (54˚C) which is
60˚F (15.5˚C) above the return air temperature.
These units typically have a temperature rise of
35˚F (2˚C) to 40˚F (4˚C) and therefore would
deliver air at the diffuser at approximately 105˚F
(40.5˚C) to 110˚F (43˚C).
Note: The vertical height of the heating loop does
not impact on the head pressure as the pressure
required to push the water up the vertical height is
offset by the weight of the water in the vertical drop
on the other side of the heating loop.
Flow Rate
Design vs. Field Conditions
Flow rate is the amount of water flowing in
the system. It is directly related to the head
pressure and the resistance to flow. Flow rate
is measured in gallons per minute (liters
per minute).
The factors discussed above become very
important to consumer comfort. Even small
differences between design parameters and
actual field conditions can impact greatly on
output capacity. Therefore, it is important to do a
thorough and complete commissioning of the
integrated combo system to ensure the design
parameters are met.
Pressure Drop (PD)
Pressure drop (PD) is the reduction in total
pressure caused by components added to a
piping system such as coils, valves, and fittings.
The measurement of pressure drop is the
difference in pressure on the inlet side of the
component and the outlet side. Pressure drop is
measured in feet of water (millimeters of water).
Water System Pressures
Within the water system of an Integrated Combo
system, there are three terms that the
designer/installer must understand. These are
head pressure, water flow rate, and pressure drop.
When connecting the water lines for heating loop
(air handler) to the domestic water system, the
pipes should be connected with a “tee” to the
side of a vertical domestic water pipe or the
bottom of a horizontal domestic water pipe. This
is to help prevent air from entering the heating
loop. The connections should be as near as
practical to the water heater.
Head Pressure
Head pressure is the pressure created by the
circulation pump to push water through the
piping system. It is this pressure which is used
to overcome the resistance to water flow
(friction) caused by the water pipe and fittings. It
is similar in concept to the external static
pressure in an air duct system. Head pressure
is measured in feet or water (millimeters
of water).
Note: Although the water in the combo system is
pressurized by the domestic water system the pump
is required to create water flow in the heating loop.
The domestic water system applies the same
pressure to the supply and return sides of
heating loop.

INSTALLATION
The purpose of this manual is to give the contractor
guidelines for installing the LIFEBREATH Clean Air
Furnace. All national and local codes relating to this
type of equipment must be followed.
required for service of the filter, heat recovery
core and components. As a rule this unit should
be installed adjacent to the hot water heater. If
this is not possible, or if the piping layout is
complex, the total head pressure on the pump
should be calculated.
Locating The Unit
The Clean Air Furnace is designed to be installed
vertically, (unless it is designated as a Horizontal
unit ”H”), in a conditioned space, where the
surrounding temperature does not fall below
50°F (10°C). Attic installations are not recommended.
Typically the unit is installed in a mechanical area of
the basement, or other partitioned mechanical
room, elsewhere in the home.
Duct Connections
A location close to an outside wall is
recommended, as the ventilation supply and
exhaust portion will need to be ducted to the
outside air. Sufficient clearance around the unit is
Slide Heat Recovery Core out to remove
ventilation knockouts. Never install ductwork
directly to the cabinet that is smaller than the
opening provided.
To accommodate various installations, the Clean
Air Furnace has knockouts for the return air
plenum and ventilation ducts, on both sides of the
cabinet. Special care and attention should be
given to determining which knockouts are to be
removed.

Penetrations from sheet metal screws used to
fasten the ductwork to the cabinet of the unit
should only be placed into the duct flange provided.
This is to avoid contact and damage of the
heating/air conditioning coils and internal wiring.
Any ductwork running through unconditioned
space must be sealed properly and insulated to
prevent heat loss. All local codes must be
followed in determining the amount of insulation
needed.
Ducting
The ventilation section consists of two 6"
(15.2cm) round ports located on the side of the
cabinet, which vent to the outside. Insulated
ducting with a vapour barrier such as flex-ducting,
or ridged pipe wrapped in pipe sleeve, is required
to prevent condensation from occurring on the
pipe. Also the airflow in these lines is designed to
be balanced. (See "Balancing Airflows" in this
manual, for damper location and procedure).
The duct sizing for the furnace section can be
determined using HRAI Residential Air System
Design Manual, SMACNA, or any other industryrecognized manuals.
Note: "Combo units" normally deliver air at approx.
110°F (43°C), and therefore may require larger than
normal ductwork. When installing the Clean Air
Furnace as a replacement unit on a retrofit application, always calculate the size of duct that is there.
Warning: A backdraft damper is required in the
exhaust air duct to prevent cold air from entering the
unit when the Clean Air Furnace is not running.

Locating Intake Weatherhood
Outside Ducting the Weatherhoods
The intake weatherhood should be located
as follows:
The ventilation portion of the Clean Air Furnace
can be vented off either side of the unit by
removing knockouts provided. Once the knock
outs in are removed, a bead of silicone can be
placed on the plastic thermo-collars
(provided), to form a seal between the collars
and the cabinet. The collars can then be
fastened into place with screws. Note the
exhaust outlet is always the port on the bottom,
and the supply inlet is always the port on the top,
both ports should be labeled from the factory
as such.
•
4 - 6' from ventilation exhaust hood, and
upstream of prevailing winds, if possible.
•
At least 6' from a dryer vent, oil fill pipes,
combustion outlets, gas meters, garbage
containers or anything else, which may
contaminate the air.
•
Do not locate fresh air intake in garages,
crawl spaces or attics.
•
Install 18" above grade, or above
expected snow accumulation.
•
At least 4-6' from the supply inlet
The ductwork from the outside weatherhoods to
the unit, is usually flexible ducting, although rigid
pipe may be needed if the runs are greater than
20 feet. In either case the pipes (both exhaust
and supply and the added fittings) must be
insulated, with a complete vapor barrier.
To minimize restriction in airflows the ducting
should be short, with as few bends as possible.
See diagram below for recommended connection
of insulated ducting to outside weatherhoods.

Pitot Tube Air Flow Balancing
It is necessary to have balanced air flows in an
HRV. The volume of air brought in from the outside
must equal the volume of air exhausted by the
unit. If the air flows are not properly balanced then:
the ductwork. Procedure should be performed
with the HRV on high speed.
Choose the straightest section of duct between
the HRV and the weatherhoods. This will be
used for both the supply and return ducts.
Drill a small hole in the duct (about 3/16"), three
feet downstream of any elbows or bends, and
one foot upstream of any elbows or bends.
These are recommended distances but the
actual installation may limit the amount
of straight duct.
• The HRV may not operate at its
maximum efficiency
• A negative or positive air pressure
may occur in the house
• The unit may not defrost properly
• Failure to balance the HRV may
void warranty
The Pitot tube should be connected to a
magnehelic gauge or other manometer capable
of reading from 0 to 0.25 in. (0 - 62 Pa) of water,
preferably to 3 digits of resolution. The tube
coming out of the top of the Pitot is connected to
the high pressure side of the gauge. The tube
coming out of the side of the Pitot is connected
to the low pressure or reference side of
the gauge.
Prior to balancing, ensure that:
1. All sealing of the ductwork system has been
completed.
2. All of the HRV's components are in place
and functioning properly.
Insert the Pitot tube into the duct, pointing the tip
into the airflow.
3. Balancing dampers are fully open.
For general balancing it is sufficient to move the
Pitot tube around in the duct and take an
average or typical reading. Repeat this
procedure in the other (supply or return) duct.
Determine which duct has the highest airflow
(highest reading on the gauge). Then damper
that airflow back to match the lower reading from
the duct. The flows should now be balanced.
4. Unit is on high speed.
5. After taking readings of both the stale air to
the HRV duct and fresh air to the house duct,
the duct with the lower CFM ([L/s] velocity)
reading should be left alone, while the duct
with the higher reading should be dampered
back to match the lower reading.
Actual airflow can be determined from the gauge
reading. The value read on the gauge is called
velocity pressure. The Pitot tube comes with a
chart that will give the air flow velocity based on
the velocity pressure indicated by the gauge.
This velocity will be either feet per minute or
metres per second. To determine the actual
airflow, the velocity is multiplied by the cross
sectional area of the duct being measured.
6. Return unit to appropriate fan speed for
normal operation.

This is an example for determining the airflow in
a 6" duct. The Pitot tube reading was 0.025
inches of water. From the chart, this is 640 feet
per minute.
The accuracy of the airflow reading will be
affected by how close to any elbows or bends
the readings are taken. Accuracy can be
increased by taking an average of multiple
readings as outlined in the literature supplied
with the Pitot tube.
The 6" duct has a cross sectional area of:
= [3.14 x (6"÷12)2]÷4
= 0.2 square feet
Balancing Collar Instructions
The airflow is then:
640 ft./min. x 0.2 square feet = 128 cfm
Push and turn with slotted
screwdriver. Damper
automatically locks when

Drain Line
The ventilation portion of the Clean Air Furnace
has two drain pans for removing condensation,
which may occur on the heat recovery core
during cold weather.
Stickers indicating direction of flow, (Supply to
furnace, and Return to water heater) are
labeled on the outside of the cabinet. Do not
reverse these lines, as this will cause the unit to
malfunction.
Piping
For piping conventional water heaters,
connections to and from the Clean Air Furnace
to the water tank should be made at the point
where the pipes leave the tank vertically. A "T"
fitting used in each vertical line, with the Clean
Air Furnace piping connected to the horizontal
side of this fitting, will work best in avoiding air
locks in the circulation pump of the furnace.
The hot water piping between the hot water tank
and the Clean Air Furnace should be new
copper type, and should not be treated with
chemicals, sealant or anything else, that will
interfere with the purity of the potable water.
Only non-lead, low temperature solder is
permitted for sealing copper joints. The copper
soldered pipe size for each model is:

Where possible the length of pipe should not
exceed 200' total equivalent length. Any piping
running through unconditioned space must be
insulated to prevent heat loss, and possible
freezing of the line.

In order to improve serviceability of our products,
the check valve is included with our manual kit
for field installation between the air-handler and
hot water source.
This will allow for ease of service to remove any
installation debris or service required due to
extended hard water conditions.
The check valve should be installed in a vertical
run of pipe with the flow of water in an upward
direction.
Note: Take care during soldering to avoid debris or
solder from lodging in the check valve.
Note: It is critical to follow the piping configuration
shown. Maintain a minimum distance of 12”
above the CAF/AH. This will minimize thermal
siphoning in the combo system.
An arrow on the check valve indicates its correct
orientation and must match the direction of water
flow.

Electrical
Caution should be used if installing a setback
thermostat to control the system. If the
thermostat is set back too far, and, for example,
is set to call for a lot of heat when you get out of
bed, at which time showering and general water
use is at its peak, then the hot water heater may
not keep up.
The Clean Air Furnace operates at 120V, singles
phase and draws anywhere from 2-8.7 amps,
depending on fan speed.
The low voltage thermostat (not provided)
connects to the R & W terminals for heating and
the R & Y & C terminals when calling for cooling.

An optional dehumidistat can be connected to the furnace to help eliminate
excessive moisture during the heating season. When the dehumidistat
senses moisture in excess of the control setpoint, the blower will be
overridden into high speed. This will increase the ventilation airflow and
create a dehumidification affect. Typical settings are between 30-40 during
the winter and OFF for all other seasons.

Part # 99-130W
Note: Do not use dehumidistat for hot southern climates.
When using a Dehumidistat or Interface Relay to initiate high speed blower operation on a
furnace, certain thermostats will initiate the outdoor cooling condenser when R and G are closed.
Use this wiring configuration to stop the Dehumidistat from initializing the condenser unit. This
problem can occur at the thermostat because the Y terminal is connected to the G terminal
internal to the stat. When R and G are closed at the furnace (by dehumidistat or relay) 24 Volts
is sent to G at thermostat. 24 Volts is then sent through Y which will initiate outdoor condenser.
The relay will isolate this problem.
NOTE: This problem does not occur with all thermostats, therefore it is important to fully
commission the installation to determine if this relay configuration is required.

Start-Up Procedure
In order for any appliance to work properly it must be set up and tested by a knowledgeable
technician.
The following conditions must be met prior to start-up
1.
2.
3.
4.
5.
6.
7.
8.
Ensure that connecting water lines are purged and free of debris.
Caution: solder or other debris may cause the furnace pump or check valve to malfunction.
Blower wheel rotates freely inside its housing.
Wiring connections are tight.
Water is sitting in the "P" trap below the HRV core.
All duct and pipe connections are sealed.
Check that styrene block is removed from under pump.
Front access door is on tight.
Fan speed selection:
a) Heating/Cooling - factory setting is at high speed and can be changed in the
electrical box to medium-high or medium if required.
b) Ventilation - factory setting is continuous low speed and can be disconnected
in the electrical box if desired.
Once all of the necessary connections have been made, the Clean Air Furnace
Start-Up Procedure is as follows:
1.
2.
3.
4.
Close shut-off valves separating the Clean Air Furnace from the water heater.
Set up water heater according to manufacturer's instructions.
Purge air from unit. To do so, open the supply shut-off valve to the furnace. Attach a garden
hose to drain valve, and drain water until you get a continuous flow. Close the drain valve and
purge the pump. To purge the air from the pump, turn the large screw on the face of the pump
counterclockwise until water leaks out, then tighten. Open the supply shut-off valve.
Turn on power supply to Clean Air Furnace. Caution: blower will start to operate at
low speed.
5.
6.
7.
8.
Switch the room thermostat to heat. The thermostat should be set higher than the current room
temperature in order to energize the pump and commence the heating cycle. (If the pump does
not start, or the Clean Air Furnace is not producing heat, refer to the Troubleshooting Section in
this manual.
Set room thermostat at desired temperature setting.
Switch fan to manual at the thermostat so the unit will run at high speed in order to perform the
balancing procedure on the ventilation section. (Refer to Balancing Procedure in this manual.)
After balancing the ventilation according to instructions, set the thermostats fan switch to "auto".
On "auto" the fan will run continuously at a low speed until heating or cooling is called for and
then will switch to a higher speed. On "manual" the fan will run at high speed
continuously.
31
Operation
Heating/Cooling
When the room thermostat calls for heat, it activates a circulation pump located inside the Clean Air
Furnace. This pump delivers hot water from the water heater, through the furnace coil and back to the
water tank. Simultaneously, the furnace blower switches on to high speed and will start circulating air
across the coil, which picks up heat and delivers it to the rest of your home.
Once the thermostat's temperature is reached the pump will shut off, and the blower will return to its
pre-set speed or off.
Note: When the furnace blower is left running on low speed the air in the home circulates continuously. When
the heat is called for the blower will automatically switch to a higher speed. After the required hot air has
been delivered the blower will switch back to low speed.
When the thermostat calls for cooling (optional coil and condensing unit required) the furnace blower
activates to high speed and the outdoor condenser unit is energized. After the thermostat temperature
is reached the condensing unit will shut off, and the blower will return to its preset speed or off.
Continuous low speed can be selected on the ventilation switch at the electrical box.
Ventilation
The heat recovery ventilation (HRV) portion of the Clean Air Furnace, is automatic. Once set, a desired
amount of fresh air will be drawn into the home while the furnace blower is activated.
To reduce humidity increased ventilation may be required during heating season. An optional remote
dehumidistat can be installed. The dehumidistat will increase the speed of the furnace blower to high
and will return to its original setting when humidity levels decrease. Your dehumidistat must be
switched off during warmer months as it is not required for air conditioning operation. To increase
humidity a quality humidifier should be added to the system.
Typically the air flow for ventilation will be set to 50 - 70cfm, for low speed furnace operation, and
100 - 150cfm at high speed. The pleated furnace filter should be checked regularly and replaced as
needed. The HRV filter should be washed twice a year or more often if needed.
Optional Circulation Timer Models
Some models are equipped with a circulation timer. It is normal operation for these models to
automatically run the circulation pump for a short period of time intermittently.

6.
7.
8.
9.
Check that the room thermostat is set to the desired temperature.
Confirm the units have power and the shut-off valves are open.
Ensure there is power to the unit and that the pump is working. If the pump is not working
properly it may be stuck. Disconnect power and remove screw in center face of the pump.
Using a screwdriver, turn the pump shaft several times to free it from sticking. Replace
center-screw and re-connect power. If pump still fails to start, it may require replacement.
Confirm that the hot water heater is working and that hot water is entering the Clean Air
Furnace.
Verify that the airflow in and out of the system matches designed specs. If airflow is low, check
for blockage in the filter or some other obstruction.
Make sure your water heater is sized large enough for heat load of house and for domestic hot
water use.
Air may still be in the water lines. If so, re-purge the system according to the start up
procedure.
Confirm that the inlet and outlet pipe connections are not reversed.
Ensure that there are no other restrictions in the water lines, such as faulty valves, or debris.
Pump is noisy
Pumps can become noisy when air remaining in the lines interfere with their operation. If this occurs
re-purge the system as indicated in the Start-Up Procedure.
HRV core freezes up
1.
2.
3.
Make sure that the supply and exhaust lines are balanced according to the "Balancing
Procedure" in this manual.
If out of balance, ensure that the balancing dampers have not been moved and that there are
no obstructions in the outside hoods.
If necessary, install optional defrost kit, according to instructions.
33
During cooling cycle, hot water circulates through the coil
If the check valve inside the cabinet is stuck in the open position, hot water may infiltrate the heating
coil. This occurs when the hot pipes are not capped-off during installation or service and foreign
debris enters the piping. This debris can settle under the check valve seat and permit hot water to
flow into the coil. The problem can be corrected by repeatedly flushing the heating loop until it is
clean.
Water sits in drain pipes
1.
2.
3.
4.
5.
Check drain pans or lines for plugs.
Confirm that the HRV core is installed according to manufactures recommendations.
Check the drain line for kinks.
Make sure that the O-ring in the drain nozzles sit flat.
Ensure the drain line has enough "fall" to it.
Condensation/ice forming inside ventilation ducts
A rip in the vapor barrier or poorly sealed joints may cause condensation or ice to form on the
ducting. If this occurs, replace the entire line.
Humidity levels are too low
1.
2.
3.
If you have installed a dehumidistat ensure that its setting is correct. (Summer - OFF)
(Winter - 30% RH to 45% RH).
Check humidifier settings. (Summer - OFF) (Winter - 30% RH to 45% RH).
NOTE: Humidifier should always be 10% lower than dehumidistat.
Change thermostat fan switch from manual to automatic.
Humidity levels are too high
1.
2.
3.
If you have installed a dehumidistat ensure its setting is correct. (Summer - OFF)
(Winter - 30% RH to 45% RH).
Install a dehumidistat if necessary. (Winter use only. Not for hot southern climates).
Change thermostat fan switch from automatic to manual.
NOTE: The CAF has the ability to dehumidify during the heating season. (When outside air is less humid
than indoor air). If you are in a region where outdoor humidity levels are typically higher than indoor
humidity levels, a dehumidistat should not be used in this system.
