Question about Fantech SHR 14104 Heat Recovery Ventilator HRV - 1410 CFM, 3 Speed

Open Question

My Fantech HRV started making a noise that sounds like water draining from the bathtub. I need to know what's wrong with it, thank you.

It's about 10 or 11 years old.

Is there any health issues with using a Living Air Filter in your home? A couple of years ago, I heard there was legislation being proposed to ban their use in California.

California Air Resources Board was paid to ban any non-commercial Ozone-producing machines from being shipped into the state. Volarra, didn't want to spend the money to DEMAND they produce a list of injured parties, ALWAYS a part of any ban on a product. When I called them they said they knew of no injuries or medical lawsuits. I've never heard of any...after 9 years. Green Environmental Technologies installs the Space-Certified part into Hospital Surgical rooms, the OLD ozone technology got rid of my 2 boys teen-room odors and they stopped using their inhalers. Went from 4 per month for 15 years for the both of them, to 4 per year. GET also went to the Atlantis Casino and purified their KENO room with a single OLD technology commercial unit. They've been commercial certified, mold certified, have a PhD on staff, with partners across the country. This technology is good enough to fight a toxic chemical spill, so YES there's a chance that you could overuse it. But like the water tap, you should learn the symptoms of it being too high. Headaches, pool bleachy smell, sore throat in the morning that goes away pretty fast. These machines are supposed to be on as LOW as possible!

I bought a used Austin Air HealthMate and it has an awful smell coming from it... it's similar to the fragrance that was in the house we purchased it from. We've had it running for over a week near an open...

I have the same problem although I figured it was due to the filter being close to five years old. I have had the Healthmate since 1996 and the current filter is 4 1/2 years old. The unit is in my son's room and I had noticed for a while (maybe the last 6 months or so) that his room had a foul sour smell to it. My wife & I thought it was our son as he is close to puberty and starting to need deodorant but I took the unit out of his room and the smell is gone. I'd be willing to bet that both you and I need a new filter.

I've seen several like that and found the wire connections corroded off. Easy to fix if that's the case. Make sure the unit is UNplugged before taking it apart.
