  • HRV90HS is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 8.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from easy to install Bought to take care of condensation on the windows. Took care of it right away. Runs very quietly.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect After doing a lot of research on the different makes and models I finally found what I wanted but had a hard time finding everything I needed for my whole project. I use Amazon a lot and even they could not give me what I needed on this project but they lead me to these guys and I could even pay through Amazon. Everything they sold me arrived perfectly and timely. The products were as described, nothing but happiness. On to the HRV itself, works awesome. I have done a ton of work to my house and made it too tight. This winter came and my windows were raining on the inside with my family and our 2000sqft home. This unit handles that on low speed, problem solved and the air quality is perfect. My wife has severe allergies and they have greatly improved after the installation of this unit. No more condensation in the Maine winter and happy wife, I would say that is a win.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Compact in size. The home builder had this model installed. Comparing it to the exchanger at my last home, this one takes much longer to remove cooking odors and is installed much differently. Too small for the house size? I like the intermittent feature on the control panel.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better smelling basement I've always had a musty basement. I tried a Humivent for a few years. It was loud and didn't really work well. Within one week, the smell was gone. The fan ismvery quiet. I should have done this years ago.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tweks I would make 1 A more standard round vent attachment 2 Easier removal fan blower for cleaning 3 a better humidity control like some of the other model

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Affordable, quiet, small size and easy to install I purchased the Braon HRV90 to replace a worn out Superventor HRV. This unit is smaller and does take up a little less room. I was worried about adapting my 6" ducts to this unit, but I was able to connect the 6" ducts directly by just making them a little oblong and cutting a small notch to go around some plastic. It looks great and has been working good.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic I purchased the HRV to remove stale air and stop condensation on my windows. The unit works great. No more mold causing moisture on my windows. When I come home after along long day, I don't smell stale, funky odors. Its pretty quiet, and was pretty easy to install. I would definitely recommend this unit to others and I have likely convinced some friends that they should get one for their homes.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Air Exchanger Product is designed very well with side ports, no elbows required for hanging installation. Very quiet, very efficient. Highly recommended for appropriate sized space. It is extremely fresh in the basement now, and I can barely hear this unit running on low speed. Made in Wisconsin. Great American product!

  • How to Hang it

    The mounting diagram shows the hanger mounts on the ends of the outside frame. However, the frames either have a latch or a door on them. There are 4 sets of holes already drilled in the top of the box. Are they strong enough to hold the unit?

    LED of the integrated control is blinking green, what to do?

    The unit, model HRV90H, serial number QB07080100083, was installed when the house was built '08 but looks like it's never run since then. The integrated control light blinks green which tells me that the temperature sensor is telling the unit to always be in defrost mode. I just installed a new furnace and after having several furnace people in, no one has been able to understand what to fix. This behavior exists whether the wall controller unit is hooked up or not. Can you assist?

    How do you turn on unit with furnace control?

    Installed HRV90 using connection to the furnace. Now my furnace fan operates whenever HRV is turned on (HRV master - furnace slave). Would like to wire the unit so that the HRV turns on only when the furnace is actuated by it's thermostat (furnace master - HRV slave). Can someone help me with this wiring?

    What is the best process to clean this unit?

    This exchanger was installed in our new home and the installer never walked us through the steps to clean it. Any information would be greatly appreciated.
