2.3 TECHNICAL SUPPORT (FOR ASSISTANCE)
REPLACEMENT PARTS AND REPAIR
In order to ensure your ventilation unit remains in good working condition, you must use Venmar Ventilation Inc. genuine
replacement parts only. The Venmar Ventilation Inc. genuine replacement parts are specially designed for each unit and
are manufactured to comply with all the applicable certification standards and maintain a high standard of safety. Any
third party replacement part used may cause serious damage and drastically reduce the performance level of your unit,
which will result in premature failing. Also, Venmar Ventilation Inc. recommends to contact a certified service depot for
all replacement parts and repairs.

These are the two most common methods used to evaluate the ventilation needs of a house:
CSA F326 and Canadian Building Code:
• High speed: 10 cfm per room
20 cfm for the master bedroom and the basement
• Low speed: 40-60% of high speed
ASHRAE Standard 62-2001:
• 0.35 air change per hour
Refer to ventilation code of your area to determine which method to use.

6. Typical Installations
(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.
6.1 FULLY DUCTED SYSTEM
There are three (3) common installation methods.
VH0002
*Installations may vary according to the model number and the position (normal or reverse) in
which the unit is installed.
figure 1
See 7.4.1
for details
6.2 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.
VH0006
See 7.4.2
for details
figure 2
6.3 SIMPLIFIED (VOLUME VENTILATION)
(For homes with forced air heating. See figure 3.)
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
exhaust stale air.
NOTE: For this type of installation, the furnace blower
should be running when the unit is in operation.

7.2 PLANNING OF THE DUCTWORK
11
7. Installation
INSPECT THE CONTENTS 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 module, insulation,
dampers, damper actuator and condensation tray (Solo) 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.
7.1 LOCATING AND MOUNTING THE UNIT
NOTE: Please note that the unit can be installed in either the “normal” or “reverse” (upside down) position.
Choose an appropriate location for the unit:
• Within an area of the house where the temperature is kept above 10°C / 50°F
and below 40°C/104°F.
• Away from living areas (dining room, living room, bedroom), if possible.
• So as to provide easy access to the interior cabinet for every three months and
annual maintenance, and to the control panel on the 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.
(Solo models only.)
• Away from hot chimneys, electrical panel and other fire hazards.
• Allow for a power source (standard outlet).
Hang the unit with the 4 chains and springs provided (see figures 4 and 5).

figure 6
CAUTION
Make sure the unit is level, with a 1/8’’ (3 mm) tilt backwards (see
figure 6).
a) Follow the instructions in Section 6.3 next page to determine the appropriate duct diameters for your system.
b) Keep it simple. Plan for a minimum number of bends and joints. Keep the length of insulated duct to a minimum.
c) Do not use wall cavities as ducts. Do not use branch lines smaller than 4” Ø (102 mm Ø).
d) 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.
e) 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.
WARNING
When performing installation, servicing or cleaning the unit, it is recommended to wear safety
glasses and gloves.
!
WARNING!
When applicable local regulation 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.

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.
NOTE: Examples 7.3.1 and 7.3.2 use imperial measures.
The same calculation applies to metric measures.
7.3.1 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 7.)
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: A 4” Ø duct would have been too small because the maximum acceptable value for a 4” Ø
duct is 60 cfm.

7.4 INSTALLING THE DUCTWORK AND REGISTERS
WARNING
Never install a stale air exhaust register in a room where there is a combustion device, such as a
gas furnace, a gas water heater or a fireplace.
!
7.4.1 Fully Ducted System (as illustrated in Section 6.1)
Stale air exhaust ductwork:
• Install registers in areas where contaminants are produced: Kitchen, bathrooms, laundry room, etc.
• Install registers 6 to 12 inches (152 to 305 mm) from the ceiling on an interior wall OR install them in
the ceiling.
• Install the kitchen register at least 4 feet (1.2 m) from the range.
• If possible, measure the velocity of the air flowing through the registers. If the velocity is higher
than 400 ft/min. (122 m/min), then the register type is too small. Replace with a larger one.
Fresh air distribution ductwork:
• Install registers in bedrooms, dining room, living room and basement.
• Install registers either in the ceiling or high on the walls with air flow directed towards the ceiling.
(The cooler air will then cross the upper part of the room, and mix with room air before descending to
occupant level.)
• If a register must be floor installed, direct the air flow up the wall.
7.4.2 Exhaust Ducted System (Source Point Ventilation) (as illustrated in Section 6.2)
Stale air exhaust ductwork: (same as for Fully Ducted System, described on point 7.4.1)
Fresh air distribution:
There are two methods for connecting the unit to the furnace:
Method 1: Supply side connection
• Cut an opening into the furnace supply duct at least
18 inches (0.5 m) from the furnace.
• Connect this opening to the fresh air distribution port of the
HRV/ERV (use metal duct, see figure 9).
• Make sure that the HRV/ERV duct forms an elbow inside the
furnace ductwork.
• If desired, interlock (synchronize) the furnace blower operation with the HRV/ERV operation. (See Section 9.3).
Method 2: Return side connection
• Cut an opening into the furnace return duct not less than
10 feet (3.1m) from the furnace (A+B).
• Connect this opening to the fresh air distribution port of the
HRV/ERV (see figure 10).
NOTE: For Method 2, it is not essential that the furnace
blower runs when the unit is in operation, but we
recommend it. If desired, synchronize the furnace
blower operation with the HRV/ERV operation.
(See Section 9.3).
WARNING
When performing duct connection to the furnace, installation must be done in accordance with
all applicable codes and standards. Please refer to your local building code.
CAUTION
When performing duct connection to the furnace supply duct, this duct must be sized to support the
additional airflow produced by the ERV/HRV. Also, use a metal duct. It is recommended that the
ERV/HRV is running when the furnace is in operation in order to prevent backdrafting inside ERV/HRV.

7.4.3 Simplified installation (Volume Ventilation) (as illustrated in Section 6.3)
There are two methods (figures 11 and 12) for connecting the unit to the furnace:
Method 1: return-supply Method 2: return-return
Stale air intake:
• Cut an opening into the furnace return duct (not less than 10 feet (3.1 m) from the furnace).
• Connect this opening to the stale air intake port on the HRV/ERV as shown.
Fresh air distribution: (same instructions as for Method 1 or Method 2, Section 7.4.2).
For Method 2 (return-return) make sure there is a distance of at least 3 feet (0.9 m) between the
2 connections to the furnace.
NOTE: For Method 1, it is not essential to synchronize the furnace blower operation with the unit operation,
but we recommend it.

7. Installation (cont’d)
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.
a) b) c) d), e) f)
Rigid duct
Use duct tape to connect the rigid ducts to the ports.
Make sure that the 2 balancing dampers are left in a fully open position before connecting the ducts to these ports
(fresh air distribution port and stale air exhaust port as shown on figure 13).
7.5 CONNECTING THE DUCTS TO THE UNIT
CAUTION
Make sure that the vapor barrier on the insulated ducts does not tear during installation to avoid
condensation within the duct.
CAUTION
Do not use screws to connect rigid ducts to the ports.

Alternate furnace interlock wiring
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.
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.
!
9.5 FURNACE INTERLOCK TYPES
The new TII (Timed Intermittent Interlock) function consists in 2 modes: the standard mode and the special mode.
Therefore, the electronic board terminal of the Solo and Duo units has now 2 additional jumpers intalled across C and
D terminals.
STANDARD MODE
The standard mode is the default mode (the interlock function stay as it was). On standard mode, the jumper positions
on terminal C and D keep them non-active:
SOLO UNITS DUO UNITS
SPECIAL MODE
The special mode drives the furnace interlock relay independently than the HRV/ERV operation. The K4 relay is
activated for 10 minutes, and then is deactivated for a 20-minute period, no matter the HRV/ERV command, even if
the HRV/ERV is stopped. To perform the special mode, unplug the unit and change the jumper locations as shown
below:
SOLO UNITS DUO UNITS
NOTE: For both Solo and Duo units, C and D terminals are now activated.

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 provided with the unit.
PRELIMINARY STAGES TO BALANCE THE UNIT
• 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 balancing dampers are fully open.
• Make sure all filters are clean (if it is not the first time you balance the
unit).
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.)
Disconnect the wire of the bypass damper (Duo only).
2. Place the magnehelic gauge on a level surface and adjust it to zero.
3. Connect tubing from gauge to EXHAUST air flow pressure taps (see diagram).
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 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 in place with tape or with a fastening screw.
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). Connect the wire of the bypass
damper (Duo only).
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.

14. Troubleshooting
27
Problems Possible causes You should try this
1. The error code E1 is
displayed on Altitude or
Deco-Touch wall control
screen.
• The wires may be in
reverse position.
• The wires may be broken.
• The wires may have a
bad connection.
• Ensure that the color coded wires have been connected to
their appropriate places.
• Inspect every wire and replace any that are damaged.
• Ensure the wires are correctly connected.
2. There is no outside
temperature displayed
on Altitude wall control
screen .
• The unit thermistor
is defective.
NOTE: At its very start-up or after a power failure, it takes
some minutes before the outside temperature
appears on screen. The delay duration depends
on which operation mode the wall control is set.
The shortest delay is obtained when the wall
control is set on MIN or MAX in VENT Mode.
• Replace the unit thermistor.
3. Altitude or Deco-Touch
wall control screen
alternates between
normal display and E3.
• The Altitude or
Deco-Touch wall control
is defective.
• Replace the Altitude or Deco-Touch wall control.
4. On Altitude wall control,
there is an important
difference between
temperature displayed
and real temperature.
• The unit thermistor is
defective.
• The unit damper has
been blocked
or broken.
• Replace the unit thermistor.
• Check for the proper operation of the unit damper;
replace if necessary.
5. The damper actuator
does not work.
• The 9-pin connector
may have a loose
connection.
• The damper actuator
may be defective.
• The circuit board may
be defective.
• Unplug the unit and check to make sure all the crimp
connections are secured. Check the damper actuator
connections as well.
• Feed 120 V directly to the damper actuator. If the problem
persists, replace the damper actuator.
• Replace the circuit board if the problem is not solved
by the above.
NOTE: Be sure to unplug and inspect the unit before proceeding with these steps.
If the unit does not work properly, reset the unit by unplugging it for one minute and then replug it. If it still
not working properly, refer to table below.
13. Troubleshooting (cont’d)
Problems Possible causes You should try this
6. Unit doesn't work. • The circuit board may
be defective.
• The power cord fuse
may be blown.
• Unplug the unit. Disconnect the main control
and the optional control(s) (if need be).
Jump B and G (BLACK and GREEN)
terminals. Plug the unit. If the motor runs
on high speed and the damper opens,
the circuit board is not defective.
• Unplug the unit. Unscrew the fuse holder
(grey circle on illustration beside).
Check if the fuse is blown (the strand is
broken). If it is blown, replace the fuse
according to the specifications on the
unit power cord tag.
7. The wall control does
not work.
• The wires may be in
reverse position.
• The wires may be broken.
• There may be a short-circuit.
• The wire in the wall
OR the wall control
may be defective.
• The circuit board may
be defective.
• Ensure that the color coded wires have been connected
to their appropriate places.
• Inspect every wire and replace any that are damaged.
• With the help of a multimeter, check for continuity.
• Jump B and G (BLACK and GREEN) terminals. If unit
switches to high speed, remove the wall control and test
it right beside the unit using another shorter wire. If the
wall control works there, change the wire. If it doesn’t,
change the wall control.
• If the unit does not switch to high speed, replace the
circuit board.
8. The Dehumidistat does
not work OR the
20/40/60-min.
push-button timer does
not work or is indicator
light does not stay on.
• The dehumidistat OR
push-button may be
defective,
• Jump the OL and OC terminals. If unit
switches to high speed, remove the
Dehumidistat or push-button and test it
right beside the unit using another
shorter wire. If it works there, change
the wire. If it doesn’t, change the
Dehumidistat or push-button.
9. The defrost cyclet does
not work (the fresh air
duct is frozen OR the
fresh air distributed is
very cold).
• Ice deposit may be
hindering the damper
operation.
• The damper rod or the
port damper itself may
be broken.
• The damper actuator
may be defective.
• The circuit board may
be defective.
• The thermistor may be
defective.
• Remove the ice.
• Inspect these parts and replace if necessary.
• Plug in the unit and select “MIN” or “MAX”. Press the door
switch and see if the port damper opens. If it doesn’t
open, feed 120V directly to the damper actuator. If the
port damper still doesn’t open, replace the damper actuator.
• Unplug the unit. Unplug the defrost sensor wire (see J4
on electrical diagram Section 9). Plug the unit back in.
Select “MIN” and make sure the unit is adjusted for low
speed operation (turn all Humidity Controls maximum
counterclockwise).Wait 3 minutes. The unit should switch
to high speed and the damper at the fresh air intake
port should close (defrost mode). If this doesn’t happen,
then replace the circuit board.
• If the defrost mode works well after having disconnected
the thermistor wire (above test), this means the thermistor
is probably defective. You should replace it.
