Fantech Heat Recovery Ventilator Model SHR 1505R - 123 CFM. Will ventilate homes up to 3,600 square feet.
Indoor air quality problems have soared since the late 1970's when construction technology succeeded in developing energy efficient "tight" houses. Pollutants inside houses, which once escaped through cracks around windows and doors, are now trapped inside creating an indoor environment that is often 2 to 5 times more polluted than outside. Pet dander, mold spores, dust mites, allergens, tobacco smoke and other pollutants add up to poor indoor air quality.
Fantech's line of IAQ Products can help you solve these problems through better ventilation. Choose from a complete line of Heat Recovery and Energy Recovery Ventilators to bring fresh outside air into the house while expelling stale polluted air.
Fantech SHR Series Heat Recovery Ventilators are high performance, low maintenance units designed to improve indoor air quality and provide balanced ventilation in residential applications. Units include many installer-friendly features - easy-slide core guides, external electrical box, easy-access doors, and much more.
The HRV brings in fresh outdoor air and draws it through an aluminum core where it is heated by the stale outgoing air. The HRV then distributes the preheated fresh filtered air throughout the home by direct ductwork installed specially for the HRV or through the ductwork of a forced-air system.
Sizing For Your Residential Needs
HRVs/ERVs are typically sized to ventilate the whole house at a minimum of .35 air changes per hour. To calculate minimum CFM requirements, simply take the square footage of the house (including basement) and multiply by the height of the ceiling to get cubic volume. Then, divide by 60 and multiply by .35.

CORE A aluminum heat recovery core configured for an efficient cross-flow ventilation. Core is 9" x 9" (229 x 229 mm)with a 15" (380 mm) depth. Cores are manufactured to withstand extreme temperature variations.
CONTROLS: External three (3) position (Low/Stand By/Medium) rocker switch that will offer continuous ventilation.
AIRFLOW BALANCING: Screw type dial on electrical box allows supply airflow to be adjusted to match exhaust airflow.
DEFROST: 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.
