Solution
• Clean exterior hoods or vents
• Remove and clean filter.
• Remove and clean core.
• Check and open grilles.
• Open and adjust dampers
• Have electrician check supply voltage at house.
• Check duct installation.
• Increase speed of ventilator.
• Have contractor balance ventilator airflow.
• Locate grilles high on walls or under baseboards; install
ceiling-mounted diffuser or grilles to avoid blowing directly
on occupants (example: over a sofa).
• Turn down ventilator supply speed. Use a small duct heater
(1kW to temper the supply air.
• Placement of furniture or closed doors is restricting move-
ment of air in the home.
• If supply air is ducted in furnace return, run furnace fan con-
tinuously to distribute ventilation air comfortably.
• Check that correct wires were used.
• Check external wiring for a short.
• Set dehumidistat lower.
• Avoid hanging clothes to dry, storing wood and venting
clothes dryer inside. Consider moving wood outside.
• Vent crawl space and place vapor barrier on floor of crawl
space.
• Size bathroom ducts to remove moist air as effectively as
possible; use bathroom fan to remove additional moisture.
• On humid days, as seasons change, condensation
appears but air quality remains high with some ventilator
use.
• Increase speed of ventilator.
• Set dehumidistat higher.
• Decrease ventilator blower speed.
• Increase humidity with humidifiers.
NOTE: Minimal frost build-up is expected on cores before
unit initiates defrost cycle functions.
• Check operation of dampers in exhaust vent; damper
vanes may be held open or damaged.
• Have HVAC contractor balance ventilator.
• Have HVAC contractor check defrost system.
