Servicing – Overview
Heat Recovery systems are running 24 hours a day for the entire lifespan of the unit. With proper care and maintenance the units should have a very long lifespan. In fact some of the original ProAir units installed are still running in the homes of happy customers.
All ProAir Heat Recovery Ventilation Systems should be serviced approximately every 3 years. This service entails cleaning of the HRV unit and heat exchanger, changing of the filters, as well as re-balancing of the system to ensure it is supplying the right amount of air to your home.
ProAir Systems offer a 3 year warranty on all of our systems. This warranty can be extended to 5 years when the customer services the unit after 3 years.
Maintenance between services is quite simple and straight forward for the homeowner. Filters should be checked every 6 months or so and cleaned with a vacuum. The filters should then be changed annually with filters available through our filter store.
Keeping filters changed annually will ensure that the air moves as freely as possible and that there will be minimal pressure on the fans, leading to longer lifespans. This will also guarantee the cleanest possible air is being supplied to you home.
We have HRV in our block-built house. Installed by Proair of Galway. Very professional and thorough job, highly recommended. Cost was c. 8k, but we have two units due to the size of the house. Been in constant operation since October, no issues so far. Complexity? Turn it on and leave it. When you have a shower/bath press boost. That’s it.
We also got ours from ProAir and are very happy with it. We were strapped for extra cash, but our geo-therm. guys recommended the MHRV as a way of making the whole system more efficient. No condensation is a great thing. Your house will be healthier overall.
