1. SERVICE PARTS (CONT'D)
2. TYPICAL INSTALLATIONS
Installations may vary according to the type of unit and the ports configuration (top or sides). Use the following illustrations as guidelines
to help you decide on how the unit will be installed.
All the units should be hung from the joists.
In every case, bathroom fans and a range hood should be used to exhaust stale air. Also, for homes with more than one level, we
recommend one exhaust register at the highest level.
There are 3 installation methods: Fully ducted, Central Draw Point and Simplified Installation.
NOTE: An electrical outlet has to be available within 3 feet of the unit.
2.1 FULLY DUCTED SYSTEM (PRIMARILY FOR HOMES WITH RADIANT HOT WATER OR ELECTRIC BASEBOARD HEATING)
Stale air coming from the registers located at the highest level of the
house is exhausted to the outside. Fresh air from outside is filtered and
supplied by the register located in the lowest liveable level.
Homes with more than one level require at least one exhaust register
at the highest level.
See figure at right.
VH0099
2.2 CENTRAL DRAW POINT (CONNECTION TO A FORCED AIR SYSTEM)
Stale air coming from the registers located at the highest level of the
house is exhausted to the outside. Fresh air from outside is filtered and
supplied to the return (plenum) or the supply duct of the forced air unit.
See figure at right.
For this type of installation, it is not essential that the forced air system
blower runs when the unit is in operation, but we recommend it.
NOTE: Home with multiple forced air systems should have one unit on
each system.
VH0100
2.3 SIMPLIFIED INSTALLATION (CONNECTION TO A FORCED AIR SYSTEM)
Stale air is exhausted to the outside. Fresh air from outside is filtered
and supplied to the return (plenum) or the supply duct of the forced air
unit.
See figure at right.
To avoid cross-contamination and achieve the highest efficiencies, the
forced air system blower must always be ON.
NOTE: Home with multiple forced air systems should have one unit on
each system.
VH0101

2. TYPICAL INSTALLATIONS (CONT’D)
2.4 ATTIC INSTALLATION
All 3 types of installations can be used in the attic (Fully ducted system, Central Draw Point or Simplified). The example shown
below is a Simplified installation (connection to a forced air system).
NOTE: To get the most of your ERV unit, the ambient temperature around the unit should be conditioned. If the unit has to be
installed in an unconditioned space, the heat gains or losses from the unit and the ducts could increase the operation
costs of the unit.
CAUTION
• Due to the potential temperature difference between the attic and the rest of the house, all unit ducts must be
insulated.
• The attic temperature must always be above 0°C (32°F) and under 65°C (149°F).
Stale air is exhausted to the outside. Fresh air from
outside is filtered and supplied to the return (plenum) of
the forced air unit. See figure at right.
To avoid cross-contamination and achieve the highest
efficiencies, the forced air system blower must always
be ON.
NOTE: Home with multiple forced air systems should
have 1 unit on each system.

3. INSTALLATION (CONT’D)
3.5 PLANNING OF THE DUCTWORK
• Keep it simple. Plan for a minimum of bends and joints.
• Keep the length of insulated ducts to a minimum.
• 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 filters and recovery module.
• If the house has two floors or more, be sure to plan for at least one exhaust register on the highest lived-in level.
3.6 INSTALLING THE DUCTWORK AND REGISTERS
! WARNING
Never install a stale air exhaust register in a closed room where a combustion device operates, such as a gas furnace,
a gas water heater or a fireplace.
3.6.1 FULLY DUCTED SYSTEM (AS ILLUSTRATED IN SECTION 2.1)
Stale air exhaust ductwork:
• Install the stale air exhaust registers where the contaminants are produced: Kitchen, living room, etc. Position the registers 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.
• If a register is installed in the kitchen, it must be located at least 4 feet (1.2 m) from the range.
• Install the registers 6 to 12 inches (152 to 305 mm) from the ceiling on an interior wall OR install them in the ceiling.
Fresh air distribution ductwork:
• Install the fresh air distribution registers in bedrooms, dining rooms, living room and basement.
• Keep in mind that the fresh air registers must be located as far as possible from the stale air registers.
• Install the registers in the ceiling OR 6 to 12 inches (152 to 305 mm) from the ceiling on an interior wall. The duct length
should be at least 15’ (4.6 m). (The fresh air will then flow through the room and mix with room air, ensuring a continuous
renewed airflow.)
• If a register must be floor installed, direct the airflow up the wall.
3.6.2 CENTRAL DRAW POINT SYSTEM (AS ILLUSTRATED IN SECTION 2.2)
Stale air exhaust ductwork:
Same as for Fully Ducted System, described on point 3.6.1

3. INSTALLATION (CONT’D)
3.7 CONNECTING THE DUCTS TO THE UNIT
NOTE: All units ports were created to be connected to ducts having a minimum of 5” diameter, but if need be, they can be connected
to bigger sized ducts by using an appropriate transition (e.g.: 5” diameter to 6” diameter transition).
Insulated flexible ducts:
CAUTION
Make sure the balancing dampers are set to wide open position before connecting the ducts to the ports.
All units have both Fresh air to building and Exhaust air to outside ports equipped with integrated balancing damper. Prior to install
the insulated flexible ducts on, ensure these both ports have their dampers set to wide open position (See Section 3.3)
CAUTION
If ducts have to go through an unconditioned space (e.g.: attic), always use insulated ducts.
Use the following procedure for connecting the insulated flexible ducts to the port of the unit (Exhaust air to outside and Fresh
air from outside ports).
 Pull back the insulation to expose the flexible duct.
 Attach the flexible duct to the port using tie wrap.
 Pull the insulation over the joint and tuck in between the inner and outer rings of the double collar, then pull down the vapor barrier

(shaded part in illustrations below) over the insulation and over the outer ring of double collar.
Apply duct tape to the joint making an airtight seal. Avoid compressing the insulation when pulling 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 the vapor barrier on the insulated ducts does not tear during installation to avoid condensation within the
ducts.
VJ0120
Rigid ducts:
CAUTION
Do not use screws to connect the rigid ducts to the ports.
Use a small length (6” lenght) of flexible duct to connect the rigid duct to the ports in order to avoid vibration transmissions. Use
tie-wraps to perform connections, then seal with duct tape.

If a problem occurs during the unit operation, its integrated control LED (2) will blink. The color of the blinking light depends on the
type of error detected. Refer to Section 8 TROUBLESHOOTING on page 17 for further details.
4.1.1 BOOT SEQUENCE
The unit boot sequence is similar to a personal computer boot sequence. Each time the unit is plugged after being unplugged, or
after a power failure, the unit will perform a 30-second booting sequence before starting to operate. During the booting sequence,
the integrated control LED will light GREEN or AMBER for 5 seconds, and then will shut off for 2 seconds. After that, the LED
will light RED for the rest of the booting sequence. During this RED light phase, the unit is checking and resetting the motorized
damper position. Once the motorized damper position completely set, the RED light turns off and the booting sequence is done.
NOTE: No command will be taken until the unit is fully booted.
4.1.2 SETTING EXTENDED DEFROST
These units are factory set to normal defrost. In cold region (outside temperature -27°C [-17°F] and lower), it may be necessary
to setup extended defrost. During the first 2 seconds of booting sequence, while the integrated control LED is GREEN, press on
push button for 3 seconds to set the unit in extended defrost; the LED will blink AMBER to show the unit is in extended defrost
mode. After that, the LED will shut off, then light RED (the unit returns in its booting sequence).

2. If an optional auxiliary control is used, if activated, the auxiliary control operation will override the optional main control
operation.
! WARNING
Always disconnect the unit before making any connections. Failure in disconnecting power could result in electric
shock or damage of the wall control or electronic module inside the unit.
CAUTION
Never install more than one main wall control per unit. Make sure that the wires do not short-circuit between
themselves or by touching any other components on the wall control. Avoid poor wiring connections. To reduce
electrical interference (noise) potential, do not run wall control wiring next to control contactors or near light dimming
circuits, electrical motors, dwelling/building power or lighting wiring, or power distribution panel.
B
A
Use the terminal connector included in the installation kit to perform the electrical
connection for main and optional wall controls. Check if all wires are correctly inserted
in their corresponding holes in the terminal block. (A wire is correctly inserted when its
orange receptacle is lower than another one without wire. On illustration at right, wire

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
To avoid balancing, the difference between stale air ducts total length and fresh air ducts total length must not exceed 50 ft. However, even
if the stale air ducts and fresh air ducts lengths are almost equal, your local building codes may require balancing the unit.
If the unit does not need to be balanced, shut all the pressure taps (located on the unit door) with the small plastic plugs included in the
hardware kit.
7.1 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 located on the unit door.
VP0009
7.2 PRELIMINARY STAGES TO BALANCE THE UNIT
A
• 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. Turn the thumb screw (A) clockwise to
manually open the dampers. Both are located on the Exhaust air to outside port and on Fresh air to
building port.
• Make sure all filters are clean (if it is not the first time you balance the unit).
VJ0032
Port with integrated balancing
damper - Top view
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 ductwork of the cold air return. 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.

AIR FLOW
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 VP0015
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.
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 thumb screw in place with tape.
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.
