REQUIRED
TYPICAL INSTALLATIONS
There are three (3) common installation methods.
4.1
FULLY DUCTED SYSTEM
(Primarily for homes with radiant hot water or electric baseboard heating. See Figure 1.)
Moist, stale air is exhausted from the high humidity areas in the home, such as bathrooms,
kitchen and laundry room. Fresh air is supplied to bedrooms and principal living areas.
If required, bathroom fans and a range hood may be used to better exhaust stale air.
See 5.4.1
for details
Homes with more than one level require at least one exhaust register at the highest level.
4.2
EXHAUST DUCTED SYSTEM (SOURCE POINT VENTILATION)
VH0002
FIGURE 1
(For homes with forced air heating. See Figure 2.)
Moist, stale air is exhausted from the high humidity areas in the home, such as
bathrooms, kitchen and laundry room. Fresh air is supplied through the cold air return or
the supply duct of the furnace. If required, bathroom fans and a range hood may be used
to better exhaust stale air.
Homes with more than one level require at least one exhaust register at the highest level.
NOTE: For this type of installation, it is not essential that the furnace blower runs when
the unit is in operation, but we recommend it.
See 5.4.2
for details

•
•
OF THE
BOX
Inspect the exterior of the unit for shipping damage. Ensure that there is no damage to the door, door latches, door hinges,
dampers, duct collars, cabinet, etc.
Inspect the interior of the unit for damage. Ensure that the fan motor assembly, energy recovery core, insulation, dampers and
damper actuator are all intact.
If the unit was damaged during shipping, contact your local distributor. (Claim must be made within 24 hours after delivery.)
Use checklist included with the unit to ensure that no parts are missing.
5.1
LOCATING
AND
MOUNTING THE UNIT
Choose an appropriate location for the unit:
•
Within an area of the house where the temperature is above 10°C/50°F (basement, attic, furnace room, laundry room, etc.).
•
Away from living areas (dining room, living room, bedroom), if possible.
•
So as to provide easy access to the interior cabinet and to the control panel on the side of the unit.
•
Close to an exterior wall, so as to limit the length of the insulated flexible duct to and from the unit.
•
Away from hot chimneys, electrical panel and other fire hazards.
•
Allow for a power source (standard outlet).
Hang the unit with the 4 chains and springs provided (see
Figures 4 and 5).

INSTALLATION (CONT’D)
5.2
PLANNING THE DUCTWORK
a)
Follow the instructions in Section 5.3 to determine the appropriate duct diameters for your system.
b)
c)
d)
Keep it simple. Plan for a minimum number of bends and joints. Keep the length of insulated duct to a minimum.
Do not use wall cavities as ducts. Do not use branch lines smaller than 4” (102 mm) Ø.
Do not ventilate crawl spaces or cold rooms. Do not attempt to recover the exhaust air from a dryer or a range hood. This would
cause clogging of the recovery core. Use sheet metal for the kitchen exhaust duct.
Be sure to plan for at least one exhaust register on the highest lived-in level of the house if it has 2 floors or more.
e)
5.3
CALCULATING THE
DUCT SIZE
Use the table below to ensure that the ducts you intend to install will be carrying air flows at or under the recommended values.
Avoid installing ducts that will have to carry air flows near the maximum values and never install a duct if its air flow exceeds
the maximum value.

NOTE:
5.3.1
FIGURE 7
Examples 5.3.1 and 5.3.2 use imperial measures.
The same calculation applies to metric measures.
Example of calculation:
Problem: My installation requires two exhaust registers (one for the kitchen, one for the bathroom). I will connect these registers
to a main duct which will connect to the unit (high speed performance value of 140 cfm). What size of duct should I use for the
main exhaust duct and for the two end branches leading to the registers? (See Figure 7.)
Solution: Simplified method. (For a more detailed method of calculating duct size refer to the ASHRAE or HRAI HANDBOOK).
Main duct: Table above indicates a 6” Ø duct: recommended air flow: 120 cfm; maximum air flow: 180 cfm. The high speed air
flow of 140 cfm is close enough to the recommended value (120) and far enough from the maximum value (180). Therefore a
6” Ø duct or larger is an appropriate choice for the main exhaust duct.
End branches: Each end branch will have to transport air flow of 70 cfm (140 divided by 2). Table above indicates a 5” Ø duct :
recommended air flow : 75 cfm; maximum air flow : 110 cfm. The high speed air flow of 70 cfm is close enough to the
recommended value (75) and far enough from the maximum value (110). Therefore, a 5” Ø duct or larger is an appropriate choice
for the 2 end branches.
NOTE : A 4” Ø duct would have been too small because the maximum acceptable value for a 4” Ø duct is 60 cfm.

! WARNING
Never install a stale air exhaust register in a room where there is a combustion device, such as a gas furnace, a
gas water heater or a fireplace.
CAUTION
The ductwork is intended to be installed in compliance with all local and national codes that are applicable.
5.4.1
Fully Ducted System (as illustrated in Section 4.1)
Stale air exhaust ductwork:
•
Install registers in areas where contaminants are produced: kitchen, bathrooms, laundry room, etc.
•
Install registers 6 to 12 inches (152 to 305 mm) from the ceiling on an interior wall OR install them in the ceiling.
•
Install the kitchen register at least 4 feet (1.2 m) from the range.
•
If possible, measure the velocity of the air flowing through the registers. If the velocity is higher than 400 ft./min. (122 m/min.),
then the register type is too small. Replace with a larger one.
Fresh air distribution ductwork:
•
Install registers in bedrooms, dining room, living room and basement.
•
Install registers either in the ceiling or high on the walls with air flow directed towards the ceiling.
(The cooler air will then cross the upper part of the room and mix with room air before descending to occupant level.)
•
If a register must be floor installed, direct the air flow up the wall.
5.4.2
Exhaust Ducted System (Source Point Ventilation) (as illustrated in Section 4.2)
Stale air exhaust ductwork: (same as for Fully Ducted System described in 5.4.1)

! WARNING
When performing duct connection to the furnace, installation must be done in accordance with all applicable
codes and standards. Please refer to your local building code.
CAUTION
When performing duct connection to the furnace supply duct, this duct must be sized to support the additional
airflow produced by the ERV. Also, use a metal duct. It is recommended that the ERV is running when the furnace
is in operation in order to prevent backdrafting inside ERV.
There are two methods for connecting the unit to the furnace:
Method 1: supply side connection
•
Cut an opening into the furnace supply duct at least 18 inches (0.5 m) from
the furnace.
•
Connect this opening to the fresh air distribution port of the ERV (use metal
duct, see Figure 9).
•
Make sure that the ERV duct forms an elbow inside the furnace ductwork.
•
If desired, interlock (synchronize) the furnace blower operation with the ERV
operation. (See Section 6.4).

Method 2: return side connection
•
Cut an opening into the furnace return duct not less than 10 feet (3.1m) from
the furnace (A+B).
•
Connect this opening to the fresh air distribution port of the ERV (see Figure 10).
NOTE: For Method 2, it is not essential that the furnace blower runs when the unit
is in operation, but we recommend it. If desired, synchronize the furnace
blower operation with the ERV operation (see Section 6.4).

d) Pull the insulation over the joint and tuck it between the inner and outer rings of the double collar.
e) Pull the vapor barrier over the insulation and over the outer ring of the double collar.
f) Apply duct tape to the joint making an airtight seal. Avoid compressing the insulation when you pull the tape tightly around the joint.
Compressed insulation loses its R value and causes water dripping due to condensation on the exterior surface of the duct.
CAUTION
Make sure that the vapor barrier on the insulated ducts does not tear during installation to avoid condensation
within the duct.

WIRING DIAGRAM
! WARNING
Risk of electrical shocks. Before performing any maintenance or servicing, always disconnect the unit from its
power source. This product employs overload protection (fuse). A blown fuse indicates an overload or short-circuit
situation. If the fuse blows, unplug the product from the outlet. Replace the fuse as per the servicing instructions
(follow product marking for proper fuse rating) and check the product. If the replacement fuse blows, a short-circuit
may be present and the product should be discarded or returned to an authorized service facility for examination
and/or repair.

AIR FLOW BALANCING
WHAT YOU NEED TO BALANCE THE UNIT
•
•
A magnehelic gauge capable of measuring 0 to 0.5 inch of water (0 to 125 Pa) and
2 plastic tubes.
The balancing chart provided with the unit.
VP0009
PRELIMINARY STAGES TO BALANCE THE UNIT
•
•
•
Seal all the unit ductwork with tape. Close all windows and doors.
Turn off all exhaust devices such as range hood, dryer and bathroom fans.
Make sure the balancing dampers are fully open.
•
Make sure all filters are clean (if it is not the first time you balance the unit).
BALANCING PROCEDURE
VD0051
1.
Set the unit to high speed.
Make sure that the furnace blower is ON if the installation is in any way connected to the ductwork of the cold air return. If not, leave
furnace blower OFF. If the outside temperature is below 0°C/32°F, make sure the unit is not running in defrost while balancing.
(By waiting 10 minutes after plugging the unit in, you are assured that the unit is not in a defrost cycle.)
2.
Place the magnehelic gauge on a level surface and adjust it to zero.
3.
Connect tubing from gauge to EXHAUST air flow pressure taps (see diagram).
Be sure to connect the tubes to their appropriate high/low fittings. If the gauge drops below
zero, reverse the tubing connections.
NOTE : It is suggested to start with the exhaust air flow reading because the exhaust has
typically more restrictions than the fresh air, especially in cases of fully ducted
installations or source point ventilation. Place the magnehelic gauge upright and
level. Record equivalent AIR FLOW of the reading according to the balancing chart.
4.
Move tubing to FRESH air flow pressure taps (see diagram). Adjust the fresh air balancing
damper until the fresh air flow is approximately the same as the EXHAUST air flow. If fresh
air flow is less than exhaust air flow, then go back and adjust the exhaust balancing damper
to equal the fresh air flow.
5.
Secure both dampers in place with tape or fastening screw.
6.
Write the required air flow information on a label and stick it near the unit for future reference
(date, maximum speed air flows, your name, phone number and business address).
NOTE :The unit is considered balanced even if there is a difference of ± 10 cfm or ± 5 L/s or 17 m³/h
between the two air flows.

be pushed in for this test). Replace the
board if no voltage is detected.
Unplug the unit and disconnect the fan motor (4 wires). Supply 120 V
directly to the GREY and ORANGE wires of the fan motor. Replace
the motor if not working.
Unplug the unit and check to make sure all the crimp connections are sound.
Check the fan motor and the damper actuator connections as well.
Unplug the unit. Unscrew the fuse holder (grey circle on
illustration beside). Check if the fuse is blown (the strand
is broken). If it is blown, replace the fuse according to
the specifications on the unit power cord tag.
Unplug the unit and check to make sure all the crimp connections are
secured. Check the damper actuator connections as well.
Feed 120 V directly to the damper actuator. If the problem persists,
replace the damper actuator.
Replace the circuit board if the problem is not solved by the above.
Remove the control and test it right beside the unit using another
shorter wire. If the control works there, change the wire. If it doesn’t,
change the control.
Ensure that the color-coded wires have been connected to their
appropriate places.
Inspect every wire and replace any damaged ones.
With the help of a multimeter, check for continuity.
Jump the OL and OC terminals. If the unit switches to
high speed, then the wires are not the problem.
Replace the push-button.

Remove the ice.
Inspect these parts and replace if necessary.
Plug in the unit and select “ OFF ”. Press the door switch and see if the
port damper closes. If it doesn’t close, feed 120 V directly to the damper
actuator. If the port damper still does not close, replace the damper actuator.
Unplug the unit. Unplug the defrost sensor wire (see J4 on wiring
diagram). Plug the unit back in. Select “ MIN ” and make sure the unit
is set for low-speed operation. Wait 3 minutes. The unit should switch
to high speed and the damper at the fresh air intake port should close
(defrost mode). If this doesn’t happen, then replace the circuit board.
If the defrost mode works well after disconnecting the thermistor
wire (above test), then this means the thermistor is probably defective.
You should replace it.
