ONTENTS OF THE
Inspect the exterior of the unit for shipping damage. Ensure that there is no damage to the door, door
latches, door hinges, dampers, duct collars, cabinet, etc.
Inspect the interior of the unit for damage. Ensure that the fan motor assembly, recovery core, insulation,
dampers, damper actuator and drain pan are all intact.
If the unit was damaged during shipping, contact your local distributor. (Claim must be made within
24 hours after delivery.)
Use checklist included with the unit to ensure that no parts are missing.
Refer to Section 4.2 and observe the difference in the damper
position at the right in diagrams Defrost Mode 1 and Defrost Mode 2:
for Defrost Mode 1 the damper is completely closed, whereas
for Defrost Mode 2 the damper is half closed. At the factory, all ERVs
are assembled for defrost Mode 2. Therefore, if your installation
is for an ERV in a warm region (zone D as defined in Section 3),
the rod must be moved to position 1 (see figure 5).
NOTE: Before attempting to change the position of the damper
rod, place the unit on a table for easy access and remove
the recovery core.
This is a delicate operation: to avoid injury proceed carefully and use the appropriate tools.
