ERV Recommendations

rshuman | Posted in Energy Efficiency and Durability on

Does anyone have any suggestions about what ERV to buy? I am looking for a unit capable of 60-80 cfm. Panasonic? Broan? Renewaire? Other? Not looking for a Zehnder. I can compare statistics but real world feedback would be very helpful.

    11 months in, I'm reasonably happy with my Panasonic Whisper Comfort ERV's
    If I had to do it over, I would probably
    a. use the Intellibalance 100 so I could duct/direct the interior supply to where I want it
    b. put supply closer to the sleeping areas
    c. think more about the location of the intake on the exterior - it needs to be cleaned often
