Measuring Efficacy of ERV’s Air Circulation
I see people use dehumidifiers in homes. They sit in a corner and the idea is they can circulate the volume of the homes air over time.
I have a spot ventilator(Panasonic ERV) that operates on the same idea.
My question is how well things like these work and how to tell if there actually accomplishing anything. With the ERV I suppose the best way to tell would be to use a CO2 detecter and see if it brings levels down throughout the house.
Generally speaking can one appliance be expected to circulate the air of the entire house over time?
How has air been shown to mix throughout the house? I am sure this has been studied.
