Exhaust-only ventilation in Maine?
Wondering if I can use an exhaust-only ventilation system in a new home constructed of SIP panels that is heated by 1 to 2 wood stoves depending on outside temperature. I have 6″ duct work going the two bathrooms and also installed 6″ ducts to be connected to an HRV for fresh air.
Recently I have been wondering whether it is cost effective or necessary to install the HRV. It seems as though the exhaust only route would be fine, but I’m wondering if there will be an issue using wood stoves and creating negative pressure with the exhaust fan.
Thanks to all in advance,
