Part no. RV250TE
50 to 244 CFM (0.4 in. w.g.)


The whole home ventilation system is a centerpiece of today’s energy-efficient homes. Broan introduces its new HE Series that combines the best performance with the best energy efficiency to provide fresher, purer air in your home at a lower overall operating cost. That’s Pure Efficiency.

The ERV250 ECM is the perfect solution for mid to large size homes in need for the most energy-efficient ventilation solution.

Key features:

  • Up to 244 CFM at 0.4 in. w.g.
  • High efficiency energy recovery core with a sensible recovery efficiency of 75% at 32°F and 65% at -13°F
  • ECM* motors
  • Minimal power consumption of 18 W and 3.6 CFM/Watt at 64 CFM
  • Merv 6 grade filters and optional HEPA filtration
  • Electronic balancing and no balancing dampers
  • Included wall mounting bracket.

*Electronically Commutated Motor.


The ERV250 ECM high output ECM motors are permanently lubricated. The electronic circuit board eliminates electromechanical parts, reducing repair time to a minimum.


The ERV250 ECM is protected by a 5-year warranty on parts only, except for the energy recovery core, which is covered by a 10-year warranty, with the original proof of purchase.



The exclusive VT9W main wall control, sold separately, is the only compatible wall control to be used with the ERV250 ECM. At installation, use the VT9W main control to perform electronic balancing, without balancing dampers! Optional auxiliary controls also available; for more details, refer to the User Guide - Main and auxiliary wall controls available at


HEPA Filter 21996

Additional 0.3 in. w.g. static pressure at highest speed to be considered. Refer to the HEPA filter instructions for more details.
