The Fantech VHR 200R EC Air Exchanger: A Quality Choice for Your Comfort
As an HVAC company based in Montreal, AirGreen is dedicated to selling and installing high-quality air exchangers. One of our flagship products is the Fantech VHR 200R EC, a Heat Recovery Ventilator (HRV) with Electronically Commutated Motors (ECM). This article will give you a comprehensive overview of the features and benefits of this innovative system.
Fantech VHR 200R EC: Advanced Technology for a Healthier Indoor Air
The Fantech VHR 200R EC stands out for its ECM technology, which offers energy savings regardless of the airflow demand. This intelligent motor with integrated electronic controls reduces energy usage, leading to lower operating costs. Additionally, ECM motors produce less heat, which means less maintenance and a longer lifespan.
The Specifications of Fantech VHR 200R EC
- Duct size: 6" (153 mm) oval
- Weight: 66 lbs (30 kg) including the core
- Voltage/Phase: 120/1
- Power rated: 200 W
- Ampere: 2.0 A
- Average airflow: 207 cfm (98 L/s) at 0.4” Ps (100Pa)
Electronically Commutated Motors (ECM)
The Fantech VHR 200R EC is equipped with two ECM motors. These motors operate at high efficiency levels and offer substantial energy-saving potential, not only at full load but especially at part load. The energy used is significantly lower than that of an equivalent output AC motor, which guarantees a reduction in operating costs.
Heat Recovery Core
The aluminum heat recovery core is designed for efficient cross-flow ventilation. It measures 12" x 12" (305 x 305 mm) with a 15" (380 mm) depth. Cores are manufactured to withstand extreme temperature variations.
Wintergard™ Defrost System
The VHR 200R EC incorporates a unique and quiet internal recirculation defrost that does not depressurize the home during the defrost cycle. A preset defrost sequence is activated when the outdoor temperature falls below 23° F (-5° C) and automatically adjusts itself based on operating conditions. The fan speed is also automatically adjusted to provide a smooth and quiet transition between Ventilation & Defrost mode.
Accessibility and Maintenance
The core, filters, fans, drain pan, and electrical panel can be easily accessed from the access panel. The core conveniently slides out with only 17" (432 mm) clearance.
The VHR 200R EC has 6" (152 mm) oval plastic duct connections with integrated balancing dampers and airflow measurement ports.
The VHR 200R EC features one MERV13 pleated filter for the supply air and one washable electrostatic panel type air filter for the exhaust air.
A limited lifetime warranty on the aluminum core, 7 years on motors, and 5 years on parts.
An Eco-Friendly and High-Performance Choice for Your Home
The VHR 200R EC, like all Fantech products, is designed to maximize energy efficiency while improving indoor air quality. It's compact yet powerful, making it ideal for meeting your home's principal ventilation needs. With the addition of control options like Eco-Touch™, EDF7, RTS2, and RTS5, you can customize your system's use to meet your specific needs.
Investing in the VHR 200R EC is a smart choice for those looking to improve their home's air quality while realizing significant energy savings. The system is built with superior quality materials and is designed to withstand extreme temperature variations, thus ensuring its longevity.
