Why is controlled ventilation essential?
Many homeowners are reducing their home’s energy
cost by tightening their homes. If homes are not
equipped for controlling and removing indoor
pollutants, indoor air quality problems may result.
Controlled ventilation helps maintain healthy indoor
air quality for the occupants and the home itself.
Why The AirCycler?
The AirCycler assures steady ventilation, and does so
economically by drawing and distributing outside air
through the home. A “smart logic” system operates the
fan only if it has been inactive for a set period of time.
The AirCycler evens out temperature, humidity and air
quality variations from room to room, and improves the
air quality level throughout your home without the
continuos operation of a central fan.
What is the energy cost to run the AirCycler?
For a typical 1,500 ft. home, the energy cost for the
AirCycler is between $ 1 to $ 5 monthly, depending on
your climate and electric costs.

Testing the AirCycler
Trained technicians use Test mode to verify or demonstrate the
control operation. The test mode will display fan activity in seconds
rather than minutes.
To activate Test mode, follow these steps.
• Press the Mode key
• Press the Mode Key a second time and hold
for six seconds. The display will indicate Test.
• Exit Test mode and return to Operating mode by turning the
AirCycler off.
• Hold the Mode key for two seconds, then press Mode again
to turn the AirCycler on.
As a safeguard, the AirCycler will automatically exit Test mode after ten minutes.
