HRV Maintenance

HRV's (Heat Recovery Ventilators)

1. Regular Maintenance

  1. Air filters: The air filters are washable. Under normal conditions, we recommend that they be washed every 3 months. Use a vacuum cleaner to remove the heaviest portion of accumulated dust, then wash in water and mild soap.
  2. Heat Recovery Care: The heat recovery core must be handled with care. We recommend to wash it once a year, at the end of summer, in order to ensure maximum efficiency of the plastic partitions. Allow the heat recovery core to soak for 3 hours in a solution of warm water and mild soap. Rinse under a heavy stream of water.
  3. IMPORTANT NOTE: Hot water and a strong detergent will damage the heat recovery core.
  4. Intake hood: Regularly check the screen on the exterior intake hood and clean when necessary. Also check during very cold weather because ice may build up on the screen located at the exterior intake hoods.
  5. Motor: The motors are factory lubricated for life. Do not oil bushings.

2. Prolonged Maintenance

Annual service should include:

  • Cleaning filters, heat recovery core and the exterior air intake hood.
  • Cleaning the blades of the blower wheels.
  • Cleaning the condensation tray with soapy water (make certain that the drain is not clogged).
