WARNING

TO REDUCE THE RISK OF FIRE, ELECTRIC SHOCK, OR INJURY TO PERSONS, OBSERVE THE FOLLOWING:

1.Installation work and electrical wiring must be done by a qualified person(s) in accordance with all applicable codes and standards, including fire-rated construction codes and standards.

2.This unit is not designed to provide combustion air for fuelburning appliances.

3.Do not connect the unit directly to a combustion appliance of any type.

4.Sufficient air is needed for proper combustion and exhausting of gases through the flue (chimney) of fuel burning equipment to prevent backdrafting. Follow the heating equipment manufacturer’s guideline and safety standards such as those published by the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA),

and the American Society for Heating, Refrigeration and Air Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE), and the local code authorities.

5.Before servicing or cleaning unit, switch power off at service panel and lock the service disconnecting means to prevent power from being switched on accidentally. When the service disconnecting means cannot be locked, securely fasten a prominent warning device, such as a tag, to the service panel.

6.When performing installation, servicing or cleaning the unit, it is recommended to wear safety glasses and gloves.

7.During extreme weather events including snow storms, ensure that the intake area for the outside air duct is not blocked and able to provide a clear pathway for outside air to enter the system.

8.When cutting or drilling into wall or ceiling, do not damage electrical wiring or other hidden utilities.

9.When notching or drilling into framing including floor supports, rim joists, and wall studs, comply with code and manufacturer limitations on allowable modifications to these structural members.

10.This unit is intended to be installed within the home in a location protected from moisture.

11.This unit must be in an accessible location which allows for inspection of the unit.

12.Use this unit only in the manner intended by the manufacturer. If you have questions, contact the manufacturer at the address or telephone number listed in this document.

13.When federal, provincial or state legislation comprises more restrictive installation and/or certification requirements, the aforementioned requirements prevail on those of this document and the installer agrees to conform to these at his own expense.

CAUTION

1.Do not locate outside air inlet near hazardous materials or explosives.

2.Unit shall not be installed to introduce air from crawlspaces, garages, attics, adjacent dwelling units, or other locations within the building shell. Unit shall be installed to introduce air directly from outdoors.

3.Do not run the outside air duct directly above or closer than 2 ft to any furnace or its supply plenum, boiler, or other heat producing appliance.

4.Any ductwork used in conjunction with the Damper must be installed in compliance with all local and national codes that are applicable.

5.Do not operate the Damper for fresh air introduction until all system filters, including the central duct system filter, have been installed per the system design.

6.Please read the unit specification label on the product for further information and requirements.

7.The Damper’s outdoor air intake, ducting, and any filters should be inspected and maintained on a regular basis.

8.Insulate the duct and damper to prevent build-up of condensation in cold weather climates. Vapor barriers on both sides of insulation are recommended.

PLAN THE INSTALLATION

Planning the installation first requires selecting the most appropriate installation approach. The chart below offers suggestions for the most effective installation approach by considering a few important factors. Further details on the two main types of installations are provided below.

 

• House has central duct work?

No

Yes

 

 

 

• Return-air side of duct work is

 

 

accessible-either the return-air trunk

No

Yes

or returnair plenum?

OUTSIDE AIR INTAKE LOCATION

Proper design and location of the outside air intake location is critical in ensuring that the Damper can safely and reliably provide an opening for fresh air to enter the home. The following requirements for the location of the outside air intake must be met:

Outside air intake is located a minimum of 10’from combustion appliance vents, chimneys, plumbing stacks, and bathroom or kitchen exhaust vents. If local codes have more stringent separation requirements, they shall apply.

Outside air intake is placed high enough above grade to prevent blockage from snow or other debris such as leaves, and at a minimum of 1’ above grade.

Make-up air damper should not draw air from crawlspaces, garages, attics, adjacent dwelling units, or any enclosed part of the building. The Damper should be installed to draw air directly from outdoors.

OUTSIDE AIR INTAKE OPENING PROTECTION

Because the Damper, together with the end cap and outside air duct which are installed with it, will allow outdoor air into the indoor environment, it is important to meet the following requirements:

ModelAK00030(6”),AK00032(8”)andAK00052(10”)freshairinlet wall caps include protective bird screens to keep out animals and outside debris. Clean screens often and do not remove.

If a protective bird screen other than the screen provided is used, it must cover the entire opening of the outside air duct. This screen must also have openings of at least ¼”but no larger than ½”.

The outdoor air intake opening should meet local code provisions for the protection of openings in exterior walls, including steps to prevent moisture intrusion around the opening.

Note that the screen over the outside air opening is not a filter. It is intended to prevent the intake of leaves, animals, or debris into the outside air duct. A downstream filter is necessary to remove pollen, dust, and other airborne particles. Potential filter locations are shown below in the Typical Installations section.

MINIMUM RETURN AIR TEMPERATURE REQUIREMENTS

HVAC equipment manufacturers may have minimum requirements for the air temperature in the return air plenum. Introducing outdoor air to the return side of the central duct system may impact this temperature. The installer should adjust both the size of the outside air duct and the location of its connection to the return side of the central duct system in a manner so that minimum air temperature requirements are satisfied under design conditions.

DAMPER FLAP (Install in

vertical position shown.)

Install the damper as shown.Make sure damper flap is in a vertical position when closed and power is off. The set screw can be used to adjust the damper opening - thereby balancing the inside and outside air pressure when the range hood exhausts at high speed.

PRESSURE SWITCH

OPERATION

The pressure switch is designed to operate when the static pressure increases to 0.05” Ps or more.It may not operate at low speeds since the pressure is below this limit.

MULTIPLE DAMPERS

More than one damper may be required to balance the system. If more than one is required use (1) MUA006A, MUA008A, or MUA010A and then use the 54060012 (6”), 54060013 (8”), or 54060014 (10”) dampers as additional dampers.

INSTALLATION OF PRESSURE SWITCH AND PROBE

For the probe & pressure switch to work effectively the roof or wall cap must have a spring loaded damper.

MODELS MUA006A • MUA008A • MUA010A

Page 6

LOCATION OF PROBE AND PRESSURE SWITCH

The probe must be mounted between the range hood damper and the wall cap, roof cap, in-line blower or external blower.

Mount the probe as close to the hood outlet as possible but make sure the hood damper operation is not affected.
