Best way to ventilate a garage?
I am converting my 2-car garage (432 sq. feet) into a combo exercise space / 1-car garage. I recently discovered that it had a mold issue, and had it remediated. The Indoor Environmental Professional (IEP) that I worked with suggested installing an ERV in the garage to ventilate it and also put it under supply pressure, which he said would make the mold issue less likely to recur. (If the ERV doesn’t keep the relative humidity low enough, he also suggested a portable dehumidifier.)
After doing some research I found the Panasonic WhisperComfort Spot ERV, and it looks great except that it’s a balanced ventilator—I don’t see any way to change the pressure relationship between inside and outside.
Are there any units that are similar to the Panasonic but allow for control of the pressure gradient?
