DVHP on Southern Maine Coast
We are building a new home: 2,200 s.f., three floors living, southern exposure, closed-cell foam, R-40 and R-60 +-, radiant heat (I know, my wife insists), HRV, little propane stove.
We are seriously considering an AirGenerate ATI66 for hot water.
Here’s my thinking:
Summer, run a supply duct from second floor, exhaust to first floor living area;
Winter, supply and exhaust from outside;
Shoulders, supply and exhaust from outside.
There are only two of us (we aren’t telling the kids we are moving), so recovery is not a big concern. In the winter if the heat element goes on, we are no worse than a conventional electric hot water heater.
We like the cooling and dehumidification in the summer. We are also considering an on-demand. Thoughts are appreciated.
