Fix it guy

I've just recently purchased a 10 yr old home , It has a HRV Lifebreath. I;m looking for documentation to guide me with what settings to use, the unit has controls and there is a main controller based on humidity but I need to know how to set this up to maximize the efficiency in my home? Is there a wb site I can down load this ?

    Try this link


    Check for a model number to your unit.  There should be a rating label containing the model & serial number.  Check this link, if your model is listed you should be able to download a manual.

    Settings for ERHR ventilator

    Usually, they run on low speed 24/7.  You can set them to high speed by a manual switch, timer or automatically  from certain better quality thermostats.  You would use high speed when you have higher than usual occupancy, like a party, or when you need extra ventilation to help dissipate cooking odors.  Do not expect any ERHR ventilator to remove smoke or dust; filters and electronic air cleaners do that.  They dilute and exhaust odors and stale air.  Do not put your house under a positive or negative pressure, make sure your air flow is balanced.  I believe the Lifebreath unit has filters and an Ultraviolet light to help minimize bioaerosols.  Make sure the UV light is changed as per the manufacturer's requirements...it may still light, but is not producing the proper wavelengths to deter bioaerosols.  They last for a year or so, depending on the manufacturer. Change the filters, too.
