    heat recovery wheel

    Could anyone give me some info on how to clean a heat recovery wheel.
    Do I wash it, blow it out, or just replace when its dirty?

    When your there cleaning condenser coils, clean the wheel, check that the brush guard is actually doing its job. I use compressed air to clean them. Water and dirt makes muddddddddddddd.

    I would consult the manufacturers suggested method for this to insure longest life. I have used low pressure water before and it worked well.
    It might get loud!

    Most heat recovery wheels are selfcleaning. It also depends which type of wheel.
