ERV or HRV with these humidity numbers? Also best HRV brand?
I have a humidistat sitting in my house the last few years, and have taken notice of the RH%.
I am concerned that an HRV will dry out my house too much. Location is Toronto which has cold winters (down to -18 celcius) and summers up to 30 and 35 celcius humid
With a forced air system with a humidifier installed, we go down to about 16% humidity in the winter on the coldest days. typical is around 20%-24% . In the summer we are at about 50-54% ish.
with these numbers would an HRV make it too dry, or would the numbers typically be affected only slightly?
Really, I don’t know how much the enthalpy moisture transfer really makes a big impact typically on these numbers.
Secondly, I have seen the list of many different brands/offereings
DOes anyone have any comments about which brand is the best besides Watts/CFM at a reasonable price?. Does one brand break down alot? leakage.
It is difficult to find a comparison of all of these brands. I don’t know which one to buy
