ERV in Cold Wet Climate
Hi everyone. The climate here in Southeast Alaska is notoriously wet. Our outdoor relative humidity is ~80% year round, and our 1% Cooling and 99% Heating temperatures are 69F and 19F respectively.
What effect would an ERV have on indoor humidity levels in such a wet climate? And would special precautions be needed to prevent condensation? I am particularly concerned about exhausting bathrooms.
I’ve seen lots of discussion on ERV’s in cold & dry climates, but none for cold & wet climates.
