For a house using an HRV, is there a good plan for ventilating both bath and toilet room (separated)?
we are building a single story super tight house with 2.5 bathrooms, each toilet is in its own room, showers each have very high ceilings. we want to ventilate the toilet rooms, and also the shower area. do i have to pick one to be “passive”, or can i have both controlled (switched)? If we put the exhaust fan in only the toilet room, then the moisture from the bath will only be removed by the HRV. conversely, if we put the exhaust in the bath, then the toilet room is not “actively” exhausted when it really needs it!
