Basement fresh air
I live in New York (downstate) and am considering installing either an ERV or dehumidifier in the basement to help eliminate musty odor. My hvac contractor believes that a fresh air system is not a good because it introduces outside (humid) air. The home is pretty tight (exceeds current ACH code). I am not sure if a dehumidifier is the right way to go or if a fresh air system to eliminate stale air is better. (We have a fresh air system and dehumidifier they cover first and second floor). Thanks.
