ERV Duct Design
Based on advice received on a previous question, (https://www.greenbuildingadvisor.com/question/is-panasonic-erv-a-good-ventilation-solution-for-tight-600-sf-studio-apartment) I’ve decided to go with the Panasonic Intelli Balance 100 ERV (cold climate version) for ventilating a 600 SF second floor studio apartment + 250 SF ground floor office and bathroom. I’ll be doing the install and commissioning.
I’d prefer to run flex ducting if possible for ease of install, but am not opposed to rigid if it will be more effective and/or quieter.
Looks like there’s a lot of options in flex ducting, from polyethylene, to aluminum, to something called Fabriflex.
Anyone have a recommendation?
