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.
1.1
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.
VH0055
1.2
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.
VH0056
1.3
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.

TYPICAL INSTALLATIONS (CONT’D)
1.4
ATTIC INSTALLATION FOR ERV UNITS ONLY
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.

2.2
LOCATING THE UNIT
Choose an appropriate location for the unit.
• Within an area of the house where the ambient temperature is kept between 18°C (65°F) and 40°C (104°F).
• So as to provide easy access to the interior of the unit, for semi-annual and annual maintenance.
• 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 and other fire hazards.
• Allow for a power source (standard 3-prong grounding outlet).
• For HRV units ONLY: Close to a drain. If no drain is close by, use a pail to collect run-off.

2.5
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.
2.6
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.
2.6.1 FULLY DUCTED SYSTEM (AS ILLUSTRATED IN SECTION 1.1)
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.
2.6.2 CENTRAL DRAW POINT SYSTEM (AS ILLUSTRATED IN SECTION 1.2)
Stale air exhaust ductwork:
Same as for Fully Ducted System, described on point 2.6.1

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.

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.
6.1
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
6.2
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).

Port with integrated balancing
damper - Top view
6.3
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 VP0015
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.
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.

CONNECTING THE DRAIN (HRV UNITS ONLY)
A
VD0181
From the inner side of the unit door, using
the provided drain tube, punch out both drain
holes (A).
VO0091
In order to keep the drain pan intact, hand
tighten the 2 plastic drain fittings to the unit
door using the gaskets and nuts as shown.
TIE-WRAP
VO0092
VO0093
Cut 2 sections of plastic tubing, about 12” long
and attach them to each drain fitting. Join the
2 short sections to the “T” junction and main
tube as shown.
TO DRAIN
Make a water trap loop in the tube to prevent
the unit from drawing unpleasant odors from
the drain source. Make sure this loop is
situated BELOW the “T” as shown. This will
prevent water from being drawn back up into
the unit in case of negative pressure. Run the
tube to the floor drain or to an alternative drain
pipe or pail. Be sure there is a slight slope for
the run-off.
± 1”
VD0231A
If using a pail to collect water, locate the tube
end approximately 1” from the top of the pail in
order to prevent water from being drawn back
up into the unit.
