While natural infiltration of fresh air thru gaps and cracks in the building envelope offers a certain amount of fresh air, with most new homes this amount of air just is not sufficient. Properly sealed homes require mechanical ventilation to remove excess moisture, odors, and contaminants while providing fresh air for occupants and enhancing comfort.

HERO 150H-EC fresh air appliance provides a controlled way of ventilating a home. It works continuously to supply up to 175 cfm of fresh, filtered air into the building while removing the equal amount of moist, stale air. Up to 80 % of the heat in the extract air is recovered by the heat exchanger and used to heat the fresh air coming from outside. In summer, the energy of extract air transfers to cool the warmer fresh air reducing cooling loads on air conditioning.

The HERO features a counterflow core to deliver exceptional heat transfer performance. The product comes with a wall mount, external electrical box with easy connect ports, integrated in-door manometer ports and duct ports with plastic collar shrouds with integrated backdraft for simple fast installation.

HERO 150H-EC is compatible with ECO-TOUCH® Programmable Wall Control.

Dimensions in inches (mm).

Two (2) electronically commutated motors. The EC fans operate at high efficiency levels and offer a great energy-saving potential not only at full load, but especially at part-load. When operating at part-load, the energy used is much lower than with an AC motor of equivalent output. Reduced energy usage guarantees a drop in operating costs.

Heat Recovery Core

Counterflow heat recovery exchanger built from thermoformed polymer plates covered by a limited lifetime warranty. Core dimensions are 14.4" x 14.4" (366 x 366 mm) with a 12" (305 mm) depth. Our heat exchangers are designed and manufactured to withstand extreme temperature variations.


The unit incorporates a unique and quiet internal recirculation defrost that does not depressurize the home during the defrost cycle. A preset defrost sequence is activated when the outdoor temperature falls below 23° F (-5° C) and automatically adjusts itself based on operating conditions. The fan speed is also adjusted automatically to provide a smooth and quiet transition between Ventilation & Defrost mode.


Core, filters, fans and electronic panel can be accesses easily from the access panel. Core conveniently slides out with only 14" (355 mm) clearance.

Duct Connections

6" (152mm) round metal duct connections with rubberrized seal.


24 gauge galvanized pre-painted steel corrosion resistant


Cabinet is fully insulated with 3/4" (20 mm) high density expanded polystyrene.


Two (2) washable electrostatic panel type air filters 7.87" (200mm) x 11.81" (300mm) x 0.125" (3mm). An added MERV-8 supply filter is supplied with the unit. MERV-8 dimensions 5.77" x 12.09" x 1.75" (146.5mm x 307mm x 44.5mm)


Limited lifetime on counterflow exchanger, 7 year on motors, and 5 year on parts.
