Intelli-Balance® 100 Mirror ERV
Intelli-Balance® 100 is designed to help you meet ASHRAE 62.2 requirements. This unique and cost effective ERV was engineered for total versatility and installation flexibility, in any climate zone. Built-in controls minimize the time it takes to set desired airflow, as well as verify and maintain performance. Intelli-Balance®100 allows you to simply design and specify your ventilation system requirements, improve IAQ and reduce ventilation costs.
- Designed for multi-family dwellings and new homes built to meet energy efficiency standards.
- Available in symmetrical configurations for mirror-image floorplans.
- Engineered for use in any North America Climate Zone, regardless of what traditional H/ERV zone maps show.
- Two (2) DC motors with Smart Flow™ technology ensure optimum CFM output.
- Multi-speed selector (50 to 100 CFM) provides customizable airflow to create balanced, positive or negative pressure within the home.
Intelli-Balance®100 FV-10VEC2 COLD CLIMATE 50-60-70-80-90-100 CFM, Ceiling or Wall Mount ERV
Tightly built homes and buildings utilizing exhaust only fans can create negative pressure. Intelli-Balance 100 solves this by supplying air to replace exhausted air, helping to balance air pressure within the home. Intelli-Balance 100 ERV uses four integrated dual 4” or 6” round duct adaptors – two to exhaust stale air and two to supply fresh air. Its low, continuous run helps remove moist, stale air and replace it with fresh air. Intelli-Balance 100 can be ceiling or wall mounted, does not require connection to the Central HVAC or the addition of a condensation line. This allows it to be installed in many places throughout the home to meet IAQ, health and comfort needs.
DC Motor Technology - The Best Performing, Most Energy Efficient Motor Available
Intelli-Balance 100 uses two (2) DC brushless motors with built-in SmartFlow™ technology. When the ERV senses static pressure, its speed is automatically increased to ensure optimal CFM output; regardless of a complicated duct run. This feature provides peace of mind, as the installer doesn’t have to worry about compromising the ERV’s performance. Both DC motors are rated for continuous run and are totally enclosed to ensure long-life and continuous quiet operation. Each motor also comes equipped with a thermal cutoff fuse.
Intelli-Balance®100 includes a built-in multi-Speed selector that provides the unique ability to select your required supply (50-60-70-80-90-100 CFM) and exhaust airflow (50-60-70-80-90-100 CFM), with the simple turn of a dial. This truly customizable airflow capability allows you to create balanced, positive or negative pressure within the home.
ASHRAE 62.2 TIMING FUNCTION
The adjustable Minutes Per Hour (Min/Hr) timer allows the user to set the number of minutes per hour the ERV should run. This gives scalability of air flow relative to property size; from the smallest multi-family to larger single family applications.This ensures consistent and controlled ventilation throughout the day for compliance with ASHRAE 62.2. Factory default setting is 60 Min/Hr.
Operation in Extreme Temperatures
FV-10VEC2R (Any Climate Model) is your go-to for residential single family applications where you have flexibility with the ducting configuration. Suitable for any climate zone in the US, this model the stocking distributors choice to simplify the decision for national distribution when the product could go to any climate zone. All of the features necessary for optimal operation in any climate zone are the same as the FV-10VEC2 and this model offers the shortest lead time of all models with corresponding inventory levels on hand.
FV-10VEC2 (Cold Climate Model) is recommended for areas where temperatures can drop as low as -22°F (-30°C). When the outdoor temperature is < -22°F (-30°C), the defrost cycle is initiated and the product will stop operating for 47 minutes, then operate in heat exchange mode for 4 minutes in order to sample the outdoor temperature. It then operates in circulation mode for 9 minutes in order to defrost (exhaust and supply air are 50 CFM). Defrost cycle overrides the ASHRAE 62.2 timing function.
FV-10VE2 (Temperate Climate) is recommended for areas where temperatures can drop as low as 14°F (-10°C). When the outdoor temperature is < 14°F (-10°C), the defrost cycle is initiated and the product will stop operating for 56 mins, then operate in heat exchange mode for 4 minutes in order to sample the outdoor temperature (exhaust and supply air are 50 CFM). Defrost cycle overrides the ASHRAE 62.2 timing function.
Exchange Capillary Core
Indoor and outdoor air pass through Panasonic’s patented capillary core designed to transfer heat and moisture. This process tempers supply air while transferring moisture. The core’s high latent energy (moisture) transfer makes Intelli-Balance 100 ideal for use in most climate zones, as it helps expel moisture during incidences of high relative humidity (RH) and helps return moisture back inside during the winter for a healthier, more comfortable living environment.
Filters Extend the Life of the Core
Two filters clean the exhaust and supply air before it passes through the ERV core. A hinged access panel allows for quick and easy product maintenance and filter checks.
Convenient light indicator and unobtrusive alarm signal on the access panel will help inform the homeowner when it’s time to check and clean the filters (2,160 hours runtime).
Both filters should be vacuumed with a soft brush attachment every 2-3 months or as needed, and the supply air filter should be inspected every 90 days and replaced every 6 months to maintain the ERV’s peak performance, or as needed based on the environment and operating conditions.
