Energy recovery ventilators are an efficient way to save energy and money while also maintaining a comfortable temperature in your home. But what many people do not realize is that they need to be properly maintained in order to run as efficiently as possible. In this blog, we'll discuss the importance of regular maintenance for your energy recovery ventilator, and also cover the basics of how to maintain parts. Read on to learn more about keeping your ERV system up and running!
Why is it important to maintain your energy recovery ventilator？
How to maintain your energy recovery ventilator？
1. A long time use will cause the filter to be blocked by dust accumulation and the air volume will become smaller.
2. The efficiency of the filter decreases, resulting in higher and higher concentrations of PM2.5 in the fresh air discharged from the outside into the room.
3. The noise is getting louder and louder, seriously affecting sleep at night.
4. The heat exchange efficiency of the machine will decrease, resulting in hotter and hotter fresh air introduced into the room in summer, and colder air is easily introduced in winter.
For the problems mentioned above, the best way is to maintain regularly in order to have a good experience.
It is recommended to replace filters every 2,000 operation hours or quarterly depending on the amount of particulate in the air-streams and the type of filter.
Inspect and clean the exchanger cores
1. Remove the access panels to access the ERV cabinet.
2. Remove the ERV core from the cabinet.
3. Vacuum the ERV core.
4. Clean the HRV Cabinet.
5. Reassemble the exchanger core.
Clean the indoor air vents
Dust is easy to accumulate on the air vents, especially the exhaust air vents. It will become dirty after a long time, which will affect the appearance. We can wipe it with a damp cloth.
Clean the unit itself
You should also clean the unit itself on a regular basis in addition to replacing the filters. Use a soft cloth or brush to remove any dirt or debris that has accumulated on the unit.
As with any mechanical system, energy recovery ventilators can wear and tear over time. By maintaining your energy recovery ventilators periodically, you can help keep your energy recovery ventilator running efficiently for many years to come!
