Application

Fantech’s new Energy Star Qualified VHR200R-EC was specifically designed for residential applications with airflows that range from 80 cfm to 200 cfm. Equipped with top of the line components; such as ECM motors, Advanced damper and MERV-13 filters, the VHR200R-EC stands above the rest. The VHR200R-EC utilizes a MERV-13 pleated filter for the supply air. The MERV-13 filter will filter particles as small as 0.3μm such as: bacteria, droplet nuclei, cooking oil, most smoke and insecticide dust, most face powder, most paint pigments.

How it works

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 VHR200R-EC is equipped with a recirculation defrost mechanism so you can use your HRV all year long.

Defrost cycle

The VHR200R-EC 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.

Power and efficiency

ECM Motors have built-in integral electronic controls to ensure energy savings no matter what the airflow demands. Reduced energy usage results in lower operating cost. The motors develop less heat so significantly less maintenance is needed and the lifetime of the motor is increased.

The EC motors 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.

Dimensional information is in inches (mm)

Fans

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

Aluminum heat recovery core configured for an efficient cross-flow ventilation. Core is 12” x 12” (305 x 305 mm) with a 15” (380 mm) depth. Cores are manufactured to withstand extreme temperature variations.

Defrost

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.

Serviceability

Core, filters, fans and drain pan can be easily accessed through latched door. Core conveniently slides out on our new easy glide core guides. 17" (432 mm) of clearance is recommended for removal of core.

Duct Connections

6” (152 mm) Oval plastic duct connections with integrated balancing damper and airflow measurement ports.

Case 

24 gauge galvanized steel. Baked powder coated paint.

Insulation

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

Filters

One (1) MERV13 pleated filter for the supply air. Dimensions:10.75” (275 mm) x 14.75” (378) x 0.75” (20 mm). One (1) washable electrostatic panel type air filters for the exhaust air. Dimensions: 11.75” (298 mm) x 15” (380 mm) x 0.125” (3 mm).

Warranty

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