4. Typical Installation
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.
Homes with more than one level require at least one exhaust register at the
highest level.
SEE 5.4.1
Figure 1
FOR DETAILS
VH0024
4.2
EXHAUST DUCTED SYSTEM (SOURCE POINT VENTILATION)
(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 to 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
VH0025
4.2
Figure 2
FOR DETAILS
SIMPLIFIED (VOLUME VENTILATION)
(For homes with forced air heating. See figure 3 or 4.)
Fresh air and exhaust air flow through the furnace ducts which simplifies the installation.
The use of bathroom fans and a range hood is suggested to better exhaust stale air.
NOTE: For the installation type shown in figure 4, furnace blower should be running when the unit is in operation.

5. Installation
! WARNING
When applicable local regulations comprises more restrictive installation and/or certification requirements, the aforementioned
requirements prevail on those of this document and the installer agrees to conform to these at his own expenses.
! WARNING
When performing installation, servicing or cleaning the unit, it is recommended to wear safety glasses and gloves.
INSPECT THE CONTENTS
•
•
•
•
5.1
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, recovery core, insulation, dampers, damper actuator
and drain pan 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.
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 right hand
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.
•
Close to a drain. If no drain is close by, use a pail to collect run-off.
•
Away from hot chimneys, electrical panel and other fire hazards.
•
Allow for a power source (110 V standard outlet).

CAUTION
Make sure the unit is level.
For vänEE Canadian models 1001 VRE, 1001 VRC, 2001 VRE and 2001 VRC,
hang the unit to ceiling joists with washers and 4 straps (included) (see
figure 7 beside).
For Broan U.S.A. models HRV100H, HRV200H, ERV100HC, and ERV200HC,
hang the unit to ceiling joists with the 4 chains, springs and hooks (included)
(see figure 7 beside).

PLANNING
OF THE
DUCTWORK
Follow the instructions in Section 5.3 next page to determine the appropriate duct diameters for your system.
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 module. 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.

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.

Figure 8
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 8.)
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 away 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 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 enough away from the maximum value (110). Therefore a 5” Ø duct or larger is an
appropriate choice for the 2 end branches.
NOTE:
5.3.2
A 4ӯ duct would have been too small because the maximum acceptable value for a 4ӯ duct is 60 cfm.
Example of a design for a fully ducted system for a unit having a high speed performance of 222 cfm

CONNECTING DUCTS TO THE UNIT
Insulated flexible duct
Use the following procedure for connecting the insulated flexible duct to the ports on the unit (exhaust to outside and fresh air from outside).
a) Pull back the insulation to expose the flexible duct.
b)
Connect the interior flexible duct to the port using a duct tie.
c)
Carefully seal the connection with duct tape.
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.

Humidity Control
3-position switch
Designed primarily for use with our low price HRV (Heat Recovery
Ventilator) units, the Humidity Control helps control indoor maximum
humidity level during fall, winter and spring. This control should not
be installed in a house already equipped with other main controls
(except the 3-position switch). You will find a relative humidity %
scale instead of a temperature scale meant to reduce the window
condensation problems.
Some model may come with a 3-position mounted switch on the
electrical box on the exterior lower right front side. It is basically an
airflow control that gives the customer the choice between the low
and high speed or the OFF (REMOTE) position. This OFF
(REMOTE) position does not deactivate the optional controls.

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 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”. An
additional control relay will then have to be installed.
NOTE: For HRV100H and HRV200H units, always use the “alternate furnace interlock wiring”.

If you are using Flow Collars:
Insert the flow collars in the duct at each location. Make sure their arrows are pointing in the direction of the airflow. Tape collars in
place temporarily.
If you are using “Flow Measuring Stations”:
Cut a 1” (25.4 mm) diameter hole in the duct at each location. Insert the “Flow Measuring Stations”. Make sure their arrows are pointing
in the direction of the airflow. Tape the “Flow Measuring Stations” in place temporarily.

9. Air Flow Balancing (cont’d)
BALANCING PROCEDURE
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 flow collar (or “Flow Measuring Station”) in exhaust air stream at location A.
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 and exhaust ducted
installation.
Place the magnehelic gauge upright and level. Record the readings.
LOW HIG
H
FLOW
VP0003
4.
Move tubing to FRESH air flow on the other side of the unit (location B) and note readings.
Adjust the fresh air balancing damper F until the reading at B is approximately the same as the reading
at A. If the reading at B is less than the reading at A, then go back and adjust the exhaust balancing
damper G to equal the fresh air flow.
LOW HIGHW
FLO
VP0004
F
5.
Secure both dampers in place with tape or with a
fastening screw.
VD0069
6.
G
VD0052
If you are using flow collars, remove them, reconnect the duct and seal with duct tape. If you are using “Flow Measuring Stations”,
remove them and seal the holes with duct tape. 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).
NOTES: Most flow collar kits provide a conversion chart located on the collar which enables you to convert magnehelic gauge
readings to equivalent cfm values.
The unit is considered balanced even if there is a difference of ±10 cfm (± 0.015 inch w.g.) between the two air flow readings.
If you are only using one flow collar or one “Flow Measuring Station”, then, after completing the first reading, transfer this
measuring device to the other side of the unit and take the second reading.
