Advice: ERV, 400+ CFM range hood and make-up air?
Need input on what to consider when thinking about range hood exhaust cfms for a home that will have an ERV, please.
1. What is the correct way to ensure “things/a home” operates as it should when a house has an erv with dedicated duct lines plus a range hood exhaust that is over 400 cfm?
2. If a 2 story, ~3500 sq ft, new construction home has an ERV installed, should one try to install a range hood exhaust with 400 cfm or less?
3. Would it be ok to install a 600 cfm unit in a home that has an ERV unit? If so, are there any special things to do differently, when considering a make-up air strategy for a home that has an ERV with dedicated duct lines?
