Evaluating the Use of an HRV/ERV to meet the Mechanical Ventilation Requirements in the Codes

NorthEast Building Science Institute

Paul H. Raymer

12750

1.5

.15

Learning Objectives:   This session will provide an introduction of HRV/ERV systems and what conditions make one more suitable than the other.  It will examine the advantages and disadvantages of using balanced ventilation over other mechanical ventilation approaches.  It will outline fundamental installation issues such as location of the unit for both performance and maintenance.

General Description:    A Heat Recovery or Energy Recovery ventilation system can be an effective means to meet the mechanical ventilation requirements of the building codes.  There are certainly elements of these sophisticated systems that make them different from basic exhaust-only systems.  If they are not designed, installed and commissioned properly they can cause problems for the house and the occupants.  But if they are working as designed they can save energy and make the home healthier and more comfortable.
