Introduction to the Fantech SHR 3005R Heat Exchanger
AirGreen, a leading HVAC company based in Montreal, is delighted to offer the Fantech SHR 3005R Heat Recovery Ventilator (HRV) in its extensive range of products. As industry leaders, we specialize in selling and installing top-quality air exchangers, offering our customers unrivaled solutions in air quality and energy efficiency. This article will explore the unique features, benefits, and technical specifications of the SHR 3005R, a cutting-edge HRV specially designed for homes built to higher energy standards.
Superior Air Quality with the Fantech SHR 3005R
The Fantech SHR 3005R is an advanced HRV model, equipped with a double core configuration that provides the higher thermal efficiency needed for homes built to a higher energy standard. The incoming air passes through a first, then a second heat exchanger to provide maximum heat recovery. During winter, the fresh incoming air is tempered by the heat that is transferred from the outgoing air, saving on energy costs. In summer, if the house is equipped with an air cooling system, the incoming air is pre-cooled.
The Fantech SHR 3005R is equipped with automatic defrost mechanisms, ensuring trouble-free operation of the device all year round, even during cold winter months.
Outstanding Features of the SHR 3005R
The Fantech SHR 3005R has several outstanding features that make it an exceptional choice for homeowners looking for superior air quality and energy efficiency.
Despite its robust performance, the SHR 3005R features a compact design that facilitates installation and minimizes space requirements.
The unit includes two factory-balanced fans with backward curved RadiCAL blades. These fans are designed for long life and maintenance-free operation, thanks to permanently lubricated, sealed ball bearings.
Heat Recovery Core
The SHR 3005R is equipped with an aluminum heat recovery core, designed for efficient cross-flow ventilation. Despite its compact size of 12" x 12" (305 x 305 mm) with a 15" (380 mm) depth, this core offers exceptional heat transfer performance. The cores are manufactured by Fantech to withstand extreme temperature variations.
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 fan shuts down and the supply fan switches to 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 house, and the unit does not create negative pressure.
The core, filters, fans, and drain pan can be easily serviced through a latched access door located on the front of the cabinet. The core slides out conveniently with ease on an improved railing system. A clearance of 17" (432 mm) is recommended for the removal of the core.
The SHR 3005R's casing is made of 24 gauge galvanized steel, with a baked powder coated paint finish, giving it excellent durability and corrosion resistance.
The device is fully insulated with 1” (25 mm) high-density expanded polystyrene, ensuring excellent thermal performance.
The SHR 3005R is equipped with two washable electrostatic panel type air filters, measuring 11.75" (298 mm) x 15" (380 mm) x 0.125" (3 mm). These filters can effectively capture airborne particles, thus improving indoor air quality. Their washable nature ensures that they can be cleaned and reused multiple times before requiring replacement.
The SHR 3005R features an external three-position (Low/Stand By/Medium) rocker switch that offers continuous ventilation. In addition, Fantech offers a variety of external controls to meet different needs.
The unit installation is made easy by the installation kit supplied with the device. Mounting bolts are provided on the top four corners of the unit for secure installation.
Fantech assures customers of the SHR 3005R's quality and durability by offering a limited lifetime warranty on the aluminum core, a 7-year warranty on motors, and a 5-year warranty on parts.
In conclusion, AirGreen's commitment to providing top-quality air exchangers is embodied in the Fantech SHR 3005R HRV.
