Description for Fantech VHR704R

A Heat Recovery Ventilator is a complete whole house ventilation system that incorporates a supply motor and an exhaust motor in one unit. It is designed to bring a continuous supply of fresh air into the home while exhausting an equal amount of contaminated air. HRVs use what is known as a "sensible" heat recovery core. The special aluminum core transfers heat from the exhaust air stream to the incoming air stream. Fresh incoming air is tempered by the heat that is transferred from the outgoing air so you save on energy costs. HRVs are designed for colder areas of the country that have longer heating seasons as well as drier desert areas of the South.

        I am a professional installer and I can say that the quality of this product surpassed my expectations. I have used Lifebreath and I find this product superior. The internal core heat exchanger actually has a handle that you grab and slide the whole core out easily to be washed in your sink or with a hose. The motors are high quality and super quiet. The control board connections are simple and easily accessible. I recommend using the ECO-TOOUCH control with this unit. I also used the Fantech supply and exhaust hoods for the intake and exhaust on the outside of the home. The CG series finish grilles are great for finish outlets in the home. The are adjustable and very attractve.

        Shipping was immediate and fast. Five business days to get it across the country, and it took me a couple hours to pick it up across the border and bring it into Canada. No duty as its Canadian made. I have only had it running a few days, but it seems like a well built unit. Not overly complex which is good. Very light, powerful, quiet fans. If you have any basic DIY skills you can easily install yourself. If you are using your existing duct work, all necessary parts available at local building store. I did a modified cross install - intake air is taken from the furnace return duct and outflow air is returned to the outflow air from furnace. All 5" ducts, and I used a dremel tool to cut my two holes in the existing duct work. If you have a ECM furnace blower you're in great shape, and should just run it all the time while the HRV is running. You can link them together. I didn't. My PSC furnace blower uses 600 watts and blows too much air, so I added three 6" inline duct fans that run all the time in the existing furnace duct. With the HRV, they push enough air and only use 105 watts in total. If you like information (like what mode your system is actually in) and cool green lights, I'd recommend getting the EDF5 controller. Although not overly intuitive, and lacking on instructions, once you get it figured out it's truly a set and forget setup that always ensures your house air is fresh. Nicest part about it all is that it qualifies for a Canadian Ecoenergy grant and will not cost me a dime (other than my time and energy).
