orcon 300 HRV

    hi
    I have an orcon 300 HRV unit installed since 2008. I need it serviced and maybe new motors and/or sensors replaced. (There is an error flashing on the machine).I would be grateful if anyone here has a similar orcon unit and, if so, who do they get theirs serviced with. I've sent multiple emails out to various hrv suppliers around the country and to a few firms up north. Alas no one will touch this unit.

    I'm also interested in getting the pipe work / ducting pressure cleaned and would like to know if there are any firms specialising in this work.

    any advice would be gratefully appreciated

    13 years old mHRV, well it made its "farts and winds",wish mine will keep me so long.

    I may say, its time to upgrade the whole unit only !?
    Maybe a nice DIY job for around €1,500 or double that for a specialised company.

    Also,when you swap it is time to get a hover and a long wiring dusting brush and clean up the ducting as well.
    Put hover suction at one end and wired brush push it from the other end.

    Thanks for the feedback. I might have to consider buying a new unit but hope not. As far as the ducts are concerned it will be a bit more complicated than just a hoover and dust brush.

    If you have roundish 75 or 90 mm ducting, thats the bext recommended way of doing it.Simple and DIY.
    Otherwise,pay hundreds for a specialised company to send a junior to do it same way ...
