We frequently get asked how often should we replace the filters on Renewaire ERV units. The quick answer is at least once a month on average. However, there are many factors to consider, for example: How often do you run your unit? Is the outside air being brought in through an area that is dusty? So what happens if you forget to replace your filter and you open the unit and the filter is clogged and so is the surface of the Renewaire ERV Core? If this happens, be glad that you purchased an ERV from Renewaire, because the Renewaire ERV core is designed to have laminar airflow through the core, which means that no contaminants will deposit inside the ERV Core. The solution is to grab a vacuum cleaner with a soft bristle brush tip and vacuum the outer surface of the core to allow airflow to pass through the Renewaire ERV Core. At this point, the ERV Core may look stained, but that is just cosmetic. The Renewaire ERV Cores are guaranteed for 10 years.
It is important to note that the Renewaire ERV Cores SHOULD NOT BE WASHED WITH WATER or any other liquid for that matter. If you do this, then you run the risk of damaging the ERV Core and the warranty will be void. Call us if this happens and we can sell you a new replacement core.
So, which filters fit your unit? If you have a Renewaire EV90, EV130, EV200, EV300, BR70, BR130 or the new GR90 you have (2) options:
