Application

As Fantech's most compact, full-featured HRV, the VHR 704 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 VHR 704 is equipped with automatic defrost mechanisms so you can use your HRV all year long.

Defrost Cycle

A preset defrost sequence is activated at an outdoor air temperature of 23°F and lower. During the defrost sequence, the supply blower shuts down & the exhaust blower switches to high speed to maximize the effectiveness of the defrost strategy. The unit then returns to normal operation, and continues the cycle.
