  • GSEH3K is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 3.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Versatile and reliable, the Broan GSHH3K quietly refreshes the air and gives us a high degree of confidence that the air we are breathing is healthy. We installed our Broan GSHH3K upon the advice of an environmental specialist. It was recommended , in part, because our house is so airtight. The installation process was a bit challenging for our contractor, but we eventually got it in correctly. We have found it easy to use and maintain, and the techs at Broan have been very helpful in response to questions. We can tell the difference in the quality of the air. We have two dogs in the house, and you can hardly tell. We ask people who come inside whether it smells "doggy," and they say that it smells fresh and clean. We highly recommend this product.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product has helped us with respiratory issues We have been satisfied with the Broan GSHH3K unit so far, since we purchased it 9 months ago. My wife had respiratory issues before we moved in and so we installed this unit in hopes that it would help with her problem. In nine months she has not had one respiratory issue, where as the previous year, in a different location, she was ill at least 6 times over a twelve month period. I can not say that this is the main reason for the improved health, bit this is the only item related to air exchange that has been added to her environment. For anyone wanting better air quality in their homes I would recommend this unit.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from So far so good. I installed this air exchanger last fall. My home didn't have one except for the upstairs bathroom fan with a switch in the basement. I've only had it about 6 months but there isn't anything to complain about yet.

  • How do you know when to change the filter? I didn't get a user's guide.

    GSEH3K: Minimum distance between registers in the building

    One more question on GSEH3K: What should be the minimum distance between the registers for "fresh air into the building" and "stale air out of building" for a home of about 2000 sq ft? This is a "stand alone" installation with the system installed in the attic.

    Is the core of the GSEH3K a counterflow or a crossflow core? And what is the rate efficiency of the unit (90% efficiency?) ?

    Asked by: Efficiency
    Thank you for your question on the model GSEH3K Hepa filtration fresh air and energy recovery ventilation system. This system uses a counter cross flow energy recovery core. The efficiency varies with the temperature range and amount of CFM that is flowing. Please contact our Technical Service Department at 800-637-1453 for assistance.

    Why is this model discontinued?

    Is there a replacement for this? This is a great model and one of its kind that is available. Is there an equivalent model that is available? HEPA with ventilation?
