So we have had our HRV turned off while doing kitchen renovations. I turned it back on and decided to get a service (it's been a while since it's been serviced, and I have done the filters myself a few times). HRV guy shows up and tells me it's rusted up and needs a full replacement.
Got to say the eyebrows raised a tad, especially when he expected me to sign off on some serious $$ on the spot.
So, couple of questions:
- has anyone had an HRV system die on them? Ours was in before we got the home - I would guess 10 years
- what next steps would you recommend?
- if I have to replace motors etc, is there a better system / alternative to HRV to investigate?
