Intelli-Balance™ 100 Balanced Air Solution, Cold Climate ERV, 50 to 100 CFM | FV-10VEC1
Intelli-Balance™ 100 FV-10VEC1 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 unwanted, 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..
Built-in Controls - Pick-A-Flow™ Speed Technology
Intelli-Balance 100 includes a built-in Pick-A-Flow™ 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 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-10VEC1 (Cold Climate Model): 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.
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 and Maintenance
Easy access panel allows for quick and easy product maintenance and filter checks. Intelli-Balance 100 has two filters that clean the exhaust and supply air before passing through the ERV core, extending the life of the core. Intelli-Balance 100 comes equipped with a MERV 8 filter that can easily be upgraded to a MERV 13. Convenient light and sound indicators signal when it’s time to clean the filters using the soft brush attachment of a vacuum. The supply air filter should be inspected every 90 days and replaced every 6 months to maintain the ERV’s peak performance.
