1. OPERATIONAL PRINCIPLES
The air exchanger is designed to eliminate problems of excessive humidity, to steady the temperature and the humidity and to filter the air
inside your house. The air exchanger carries out the following operations:
AIR CIRCULATION (PRO 200 UNIT ONLY) :
The system circulates the air inside the house, thus steadying the temperature and the humidity throughout.
CIRCULATION WITH AIR EXCHANGE: (ALL UNITS)
While continually circulating the air within the house, the unit also evacuates part of this
stale air and replaces it with fresh dry air from the outside.
The following extra benefits are thus obtained: lowering of the humidity, elimination of
stale air, cooling of the house on hot summer nights.

HOW TO USE THE CONTROLS
a)
Using the humidity level selector:
VC0073
Winter: (outside temperature between 5В°C and -30В°C)
– Position the selector between 50% and 25%, pointing approximately to the corresponding outside temperature.
– If there is condensation or frost on the windows, then lower the humidity level by 1% to 2% every 24 hours until the condensation
has evaporated.
– Do not go lower than 25%: The air will become too dry for human comfort.
3
2. CONTROLS (CONT'D)
2.2
HOW TO USE THE CONTROLS (CONT'D)
a)
Using the humidity level selector (cont'd):
Spring and fall:
– Position the selector anywhere between 75% and 50% (higher on warm days, lower on cold days).
– If certain periods during the spring and fall seem more like winter then you should follow the instructions given for humidity
control during winter!
Summer:
– Position the selector at 80% during the day.
– If you want to introduce cool fresh air into the house during certain summer nights, then lower the selector to 20% for these nights.
b)
Explanations about humidity levels: IMPORTANT
The comfort level for human beings is between 30% and 45% relative humidity. To measure the present humidity level in your
house, you can proceed as follows:
– Turn the dial to 80%.
– Turn the dial slowly downwards until you hear a “click”. The dial will then be pointing to the value for the present humidity level
(precision of 5%).
Turning the selector lower than the “click” position means that you desire to lower the humidity level in the house. This action will
initiate the “air exchange” mode on your ventilation system and means that you are expecting the stale humid air from inside to be
replaced with dryer air from outdoors. It is therefore pointless to try and lower the humidity with “air exchange” on rainy or foggy
days.
Turning the selector higher than the “click” position means that you are not interested in having your ventilation system function
under “air exchange” mode.
Finally keep in mind that the instructions given above are just guidelines. You might prefer different values for the humidity selector,
depending on the insulation of your house, the type of windows, or to satisfy the specific needs of certain occupants. After some
experimenting, you will eventually develop a control method best adapted to your household needs.
C)
Using the circulation selector (Model 11417, for PRO 200 units only)
“Continuous Circulation”: At the exact moment when the desired humidity level is reached, the “air exchange” mode is interrupted
and the system continues to operate under “circulation” mode only (see section 1). The “air exchange” mode will be reactivated
only if the humidity level in the house goes up higher than the selected value.
“Intermittent Circulation”: At the exact moment when the desired humidity level is reached, the unit goes off. It will automatically
start up again in “air exchange” mode if the humidity level in the house goes up higher than the selected value.
Recommendations for a PRO 200 installed in the basement: “Continuous Circulation” during the winter; “Intermittent Circulation”
during spring, summer, and fall.
CAUTION
Adjust for “Continuous Circulation” during all 4 seasons if your unit is installed in the attic.
3. MAINTENANCE
Air filter: We recommend that it be cleaned every three months. First, use a vacuum
cleaner to remove the accumulated dust. Then wash it in warm soapy water.
Exterior openings: Clean the exterior intake and exhaust screens at least once a
year, preferably in autumn.

REPLACEMENT PARTS AND REPAIRS
In order to ensure your ventilation unit remains in good working condition, you must use the manufacturer genuine replacement parts
only. The manufacturer replacement parts are specially designed for each unit and are manufactured to comply with all the applicable
certification standards and maintain a high standard of safety. Any third party replacement part used may cause serious damage and
drastically reduce the performance level of your unit, which will result in premature failing. The manufacturer recommends to contact a
certified service depot for all replacement parts and repairs.

5. INSTALLATION OF THE SYSTEM
5.1
INSTALLATION KITS (PRO 100 AND PRO 200 MODELS ONLY)
The table below indicates the installation kits which are needed to correctly install your air exchanger.
Normally, the air exchanger is installed in the basement because it then becomes easier to clean. The model PRO 200, however, can be
installed in the attic if a basement installation is impracticable. (Models PRO 100, 41000 and 1601510 should not be installed in the attic.)
When you have to install extra registers in the ground floor, use either: two 6” x 10” registers or three 4” x 10” registers.
We strongly recommend that you purchase VENMAR kits and registers.

LOCATION OF COMPONENTS
Carefully plan the location of all the components before proceeding with the actual installation. The following suggestions will help you
find the best location for each components.
Stale air intake register:
– Always locate the register at the highest point in the house, because humidity is concentrated at this point.
– Position the register as far from the stairway as possible and in such a way that the air circulates in all the lived-in spaces in the house.
– Avoid installing the register in a bathroom or a bedroom; place it in a location where the air flows freely (e.g.: living room, kitchen,
hallway).
– For silent operation, leave a minimum of 15 feet of flexible duct between the stale air intake register and the unit.
– Do not install the register close to a source of heat. The temperature of the intake air must not exceed 50°C.
Fresh air distribution register:
– Always locate the register in a large, open area in the basement to ensure the greatest possible circulation of air. If, however, your house
has no basement or has just an underfloor space, then it will be necessary to locate this register in the ceiling on the first floor and as
far as possible from the location of the stale air intake register.
– Position the register as far as possible from the stairway and in such a way that the air circulates in all the lived-in spaces of the house.
– If you have a slow combustion fireplace place the register in such a way that the heat from this fireplace can be distributed throughout
the house.
– For silent operation, leave at least 15 feet of flexible duct between the fresh air distribution register and the unit.

5. INSTALLATION OF THE SYSTEM (CONT'D)
5.2
LOCATION OF COMPONENTS (CONT'D)
Extra registers:
– If your basement stairwell is often closed, then you must install 2 or 3 extra registers (not supplied with the kits) in the floor at the ground
floor level. As an alternative, you could install one of these registers above the stairwell door or on a wall adjacent to the stairwell. Locate
these registers so that the air will be able to circulate freely (living room, hallway, etc.). Avoid placing them near the state air intake
register.
Unit:
– Model PRO 200 can be installed in either the basement or the attic. Models PRO 100, 41000 and 1601510 can be installed in the
basement only.
– Place the unit as close as possible to an outside wall to minimize the length of the insulated flexible ducts. Place the unit in such a way
as to respect the lengths of the ducts supplied in the parts kits (if need be). Place the unit far from the areas of the house where
peace and quiet are desired.
– If possible, place the unit close to an electrical outlet. Make sure you have the required wires for the electrical installation: AWG 14/2
wire necessary for all models plus an extra AWG 14/3 wire for model PRO 200.
– Position the unit so as to permit easy access to the filter. Model PRO 200 can be installed upside down,
which in certain cases makes it easier to get at the filter (see illustration at right).
VB0039
PRO 200 in reversed position
Flexible ducts:
– Use closets, cupboards and other storage spaces to run duct from one floor to another (do not use wall cavities). Stretch duct and install
in straight lines as much as possible. Do not alter the length of duct supplied with the different kits (if need be). The efficiency of your
ventilation system might be reduced.
Control:
– Locate the control on the ground floor of the house in an area where air circulates (e.g.: hallway, living room, dining room, etc.). Never
place it near a doorway to the outside, nor on an exterior wall. Place the control approximately 1.5 meters (60 inches) from the floor.
1,8 m
6’
Exterior openings:
– Position the fresh air intake port far from sources of contamination such as the
garage, dryer outlet, central vacuum system, gas regulator.
Place the openings at least 45 cm (18 inches) above the ground.
Leave at least 1.8 meters (6 feet) between the two openings.
The prevailing winds should not blow the stale air towards the fresh air intake
port.

INSTRUCTIONS FOR THE INSTALLATION
Once you have decided on the best location for all the components and for all the various openings that will have to be cut out, and the
necessary tools have been procured, then you are ready to commence the actual installation of your system. To facilitate the installation
we strongly recommend that you follow the detailed steps below:
1
You will find, on pages 11 and 12, two large drawings which illustrate the different types of installation. Determine which one
corresponds to your particular situation and encircle the drawing for easy future reference.
You should follow the procedure below to “connect” an insulated flexible duct to its corresponding opening:
a) Connect the interior flexible duct to the hole using screws and/or a duct tie.
b) Carefully seal the connection with duct tape.
c) Pull the insulation over the joint.
d) Once more apply duct tape to the joint making an airtight seal. Avoid pulling the tape too tight around the duct, as this will
compress the insulation making it loose its efficiency.
a)
a)
b)
c)
d)

2
Cut out all the round holes that will permit the flexible duct to pass through walls, floors and ceilings, as well as the holes where you
intend to install all round registers (diffusers). A 6” duct requires a 6¼” hole and an 8” duct requires an 8¼” hole.
Installation of round registers (included in your kit, if need be):
a) Connect the duct to the plastic support provided (6” ring-pipe assembly).
b) Screw the plastic support into the ceiling.
c) Screw the register onto the plastic support.

INSTRUCTIONS FOR THE INSTALLATION (CONT'D)
Cut out all the rectangular holes in the locations where you intend to install
rectangular registers. All 6” x 10” registers require 6” x 9¾” holes and all 4” x 10”
registers require 4” x 9¾” holes.
3
Install the rectangular registers in the correct locations and attach the
corresponding flexible duct to these registers. (Attention, if you have “extra
registers”, they are not connected to any ducts! See illustration at right.)
4
Cut out the two exterior openings. These holes should measure 4¼” diameter.
Basement openings are cut in the end-joists, whereas attic openings are cut in
the soffit.
Install the exterior ports and attach the corresponding flexible duct: If in the
basement, connect the insulated duct to the intake port and, if in the
attic, connect the insulated duct to the exhaust port. Use silicone sealer to
waterproof the openings if installed in the basement.
5
5
Installation of the unit. Attach the 4 hooks to the 4 corners of the unit. Using
4 screws attach the 4 chains to the ceiling joists. Put the springs on the chains.
The springs stop the vibrations from the unit being transmitted to the structure of
your house. Suspend the unit using the chains and hooks.
6.1
6.1 On PRO 200 unit only, install the white ring. Install it in the unit’s fresh air from
outside port. This ring controls the flow of fresh air. Remove the ring only if you
make frequent use of a wood-burning stove.
CAUTION
Make sure the unit is level.
VO0016
6.2 On PRO 100, 41000 and 1601510 units only, check the stale air to outside (A) and fresh air from outside (B) ports. Those
both ports are equipped with special dampers; according to the unit installation position (normal or reversed), set these dampers as
follows:
Stale air to outside port damper: The small hole (1) must always be on the upper side of the damper.
Fresh air from outside port damper: The weight (2) must always be on the lower side of the damper.
NOTE: To set the port damper position, simply rotate the port until the right position as been reached.
