NOTE: Please note that these units can be installed in either the normal or reverse (upside down) position. See below for special
instructions about reverse position.
Choose an appropriate location for the unit:
• Within an area of the house where the ambient temperature is kept between 10°C (50°F) and 40°C (104°F)
• Away from living areas (dining room, living room, bedroom), if possible
• So as to provide easy access to the interior cabinet for every three months maintenance, 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)

3. INSTALLATION (CONT’D)
3.3 PLANNING OF THE DUCTWORK
a) Follow the instructions in Section 3.4 below to determine the appropriate duct diameters for your system.
b) Keep it simple. Plan for a minimum number of bends and joints. Keep the length of insulated duct to a minimum.
c) Do not use wall cavities as ducts. Do not use branch lines smaller than 4” Ø (102 mm Ø).
d) 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 module. Use sheet metal for the kitchen exhaust duct.
e) 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.
3.4 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: Examples 3.4.1 and 3.4.2 use imperial measures. The same calculation applies to metric measures.
3.4.1 EXAMPLE OF CALCULATION
PROBLEM: My installation requires two exhaust registers (one for the kitchen, one for the bathroom).
END
I will connect these registers to a main duct which will connect to the unit (high speed performance BRANCHES
value of 140 cfm). What size of duct should I use for the main exhaust duct and for both end branches
5˝ø,
leading to the registers? (See illustration at right.)
SOLUTION: Simplified method. (For a more detailed method of calculating duct size refer to the ASHRAE 70 CFM
or HRAI HANDBOOK).
MAIN BRANCH
Main duct: Table above indicates a 6” Ø duct: Recommended air flow: 120 cfm; maximum air flow:
6˝ø, 140 CFM
180 cfm. The high speed air flow of 140 cfm is close enough to the recommended value (120) and
far away enough from the maximum value (180). Therefore a 6” Ø duct or larger is an appropriate
choice for the main exhaust duct.
VI0003
End branches: Each end branch will have to transport an 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 away enough from the maximum value (110). Therefore
a 5” Ø duct or larger is an appropriate choice for both 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.

3.5 INSTALLING THE DUCTWORK AND THE REGISTERS
! 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.
3.5.1 FULLY DUCTED SYSTEM (AS ILLUSTRATED IN SECTION 2.1)
STALE AIR EXHAUST DUCTWORK:
• Install registers in areas where contaminants are produced: Kitchen, bathrooms, laundry room, etc.
• Install registers 6" to 12" (152 mm 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.
3.5.2 EXHAUST DUCTED SYSTEM (AS ILLUSTRATED IN SECTION 2.2)
STALE AIR EXHAUST DUCTWORK:
Same as for Fully Ducted System, described on point 3.5.1 above)

5. ELECTRICAL CONNECTION TO THE FURNACE
! WARNING
Never connect a 120-volt AC circuit to the terminals of the furnace interlock (standard wiring). Only use the low
voltage class 2 circuit of the furnace blower control.
FOR A FURNACE CONNECTED TO A COOLING SYSTEM:
On some older thermostats, energizing the “R” and “G” terminals at the furnace has the effect of energizing “Y” at the thermostat and
thereby turning on the cooling system. If you identify this type of thermostat, you must use the ALTERNATE FURNACE INTERLOCK WIRING.

6. WIRING DIAGRAM
! WARNING
• Risk of electric shocks. Before performing any maintenance or servicing, always disconnect the unit from its power source.
• This product is equipped with an overload protection (fuse). A blown fuse indicates an overload or a short-circuit situation.
If the fuse blows, unplug the product and check the polarity and voltage output from the outlet. Replace the fuse as per the
servicing instructions (refer to wiring diagram for proper fuse rating) and verify the product. If the replaced fuse blows, it may
be a short-circuit and the product must be discarded or returned to an authorized service center for examination and/or repair.
7. BALANCING THE UNIT
7.1 WHAT YOU NEED TO BALANCE THE UNIT
• A magnehelic gauge capable of measuring 0" to 0.5" of water
(0 to 125 Pa) and 2 plastic tubes.
• The balancing chart of the unit.
VP0009
7.2 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 integrated balancing dampers are fully open.
• Make sure all filters are clean (if it is not the first time the unit is balanced).
VD0280
7.3 BALANCING PROCEDURE
1. Set the unit to high speed.
Make sure that the furnace/air handler blower is ON if the installation is in any way connected to the cold air return ductwork. If not,
leave furnace/air handler 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
at right). 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 restriction 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.
FRESH AIR FLOW
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 a 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).
VP0023
EXHAUST AIR FLOW
7. Install 4 pressure taps plugs (included in parts bag).
NOTES: 1. Use conversion chart provided with the unit to convert magnehelic gauge readings to equivalent cfm values.
2. The unit is considered balanced even if there is a difference of ±10 cfm (or ± 5 l/s or 17 m³/h) between both air flows.
