I can report that turning it off on the touch screen on our model will keep it off until we turn it back on manually.

1eStar: Buying a HRV brand ventilation system is much like paying to get cancer. The whole company should be incarcerated for deceptive and obnoxious practices.


 


 


Honestly curious, could you please explain what these deceptive and obnoxious practices are?



Sorry I see I never answered...

The obnoxious part is they refuse to take your details off their marketing list after repeated times asking to do so. The number of times somebody different called from HRV was ridiculous.

Their product (as chimera chimed in) marketing is deceptive, they promise free heat. There is no such thing, in fact their V for ventilation ensures that your house will be cooler in winter than when you didn't have the crazy HRV system. If you've ever stayed in a guest bedroom with freezing cold air blowing on your head at 5am you'll understand my sentiment.

This is incorrect you wouldn't feel the cold air blowing on your head as they blow outwards not downwards 

 

further to this HRV works the same way any other Ventilation systems work they all blow cold air at night.

sorry but that statement is 100% incorrect. im sitting about 3m from my DVS vent (its about 1.4m higher than my head) and when its on high power i can fell it no problems.

 

I also dislike HRV because i was dealing with EES, who is owned by HRV. i submitted an online contact request via their website and that was fine, then i started getting emails from HRV about their products. I questioned them on this and they stated cause they own EES and i submitted the contact us form they can do that. there is zero mention of HRV on EES's website.

 

I had the EES guy come and have a chat while this was going on and then told HRV that they were essentially spamming (unsolicited emails) and i reported them to the DIA.

 

I never heard back from the guy about the quote. He wouldn't return my emails, my text messages or my calls.

In the past they've had relentless door-knocking/telemarketing/advertising campaigns so this all fits does't it?

 This is my controller

 

 

 

 

Have you tried adjusting your set temperature?

 

The way it is on this pic, it's trying to heat your house (currently 22-deg) with hot ceiling air (28-deg), because the set temperature is 23.

I am 6'6 tall I stand under the vent of our HRV when it's on high I can't feel air hitting my head I can only feel air if I reach up2 it. maybe DVS ones blow the air downwards.
