Bathroom/laundry vents through HRV?
We are building a super insulated house. I’ve been a carpenter long enough and studied enough that I’m confidant the envelope will be tight.
The thing I am least comfortable designing is the ventilation system. I am planning a balanced, ducted system, with the HRV acting as the air handler. Simple enough to balance if the system includes only fresh and exhaust air, but what about bath and laundry area fans? Do you run those through the HRV as well?
And what about the kitchen range vent? If these DON’T run through the HRV, where does their make up air come from? Passive vents?
Thanks for any opinions – jim
