SHR 260RD Fresh Air Appliance

Side duct connection HRV, 267 cfm, recirculation defrost

Item Number: 99298

• Airflow up to 267 cfm @ 0.4" PS
• Doors on 2 sides of the cabinet for access to multiple cores
• Removable screw terminal for easy connection

Suitable for very large residential or small commercial applications, the compact SHR 260RD comes with access panels on both sides of the unit for installation versatility. The unit is designed for higher static pressure and higher airflow applications.

How it works

The unit brings a continuous supply of fresh air into a home while exhausting an equal amount of contaminated air. During winter, fresh incoming air is tempered by the heat that is transferred from the outgoing air so you save on energy costs, while during summer, the incoming air is pre-cooled if the house is equipped with an air cooling system. The SHR 260RD is equipped with automatic defrost mechanisms so you can use your HRV all year long.

Defrost cycle

During the defrost sequence, a motorized damper temporarily blocks the incoming fresh air stream so that the warm air from the house can circulate through the HRV. The exhaust blower shuts down and the supply blower switches into high speed to maximize the effectiveness of the defrost strategy. During this cycle, household odors from the kitchen or bathroom are prevented from entering the home and the unit will not create negative pressure.

Dimensional information is in inches (mm)


Four (4) factory-balanced fans with backward curved blades. Motors come with permanently lubricated, sealed ball-bearings to guarantee long life and maintenance-free operation.

Heat Recovery Core

Two (2) aluminum heat recovery core covered by a limited lifetime warranty. Core dimensions are 12” x 12” (305 x 305 mm) with a 11,5” (292 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, drain pan and electrical panel can be accessed easily from the access panel. Core conveniently slides out with only 14” (356 mm) clearance


24 gauge galvanized pre-painted steel corrosion resistant.


Cabinet is fully insulated with 1” (25 mm) high density expanded polystyrene.


Four (4) washable electrostatic panel type air filters 11,5” (292mm) x 11,4” (290 mm) x 0.125” (3mm).


External three (3) position (Reduced/Stand By/Normal) rocker switch that will offer continuous ventilation. Fantech offers a variety of external controls. (see optional controls)


Unit is typically hung by using installation kit supplied with unit. Mounting bolts provided on top four (4) corners of unit.


Limited lifetime on aluminum core, 7 year on motors, and 5 year on parts.
