  • HRV160TE is rated 3.0 out of 5 by 2.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Southern California Paired with an HRV160TE for a 2800 sq ft single family home. Running in Smart Mode or Vent Min all the time. We sleep more comfortably, have few to no odors in the home, no stale air anymore, no foggy mirrors in bathroom anymore, AND none of us have gotten sick this year since installing it; which is a miracle seeing as the mega-flu seems to be hitting everyone. Also my allergies are all but gone. Had an AV8W with an HRV in Alaska for years and it worked like a charm up there as well. Will always use one with an HRV in the future.

    What are the default low and high speeds?

    What is the standby power when not ventilating?

    If it is ultra energy efficiency, the electrical power under all conditions is important. The power used when the unit is powered, but the controls are not calling for ventilation should also be very low. It ought to be in the data sheet. Can you provide this to me?
