FV-10VEC2 ERV principle of operation?
I’m brand new here, a homeowner with pretty fair “handyman” ability.
Was reading up on how to size a ERV/HRV and found the Panasonic PV-10VEC2 mentioned.
While reading the specs, it mentioned it’s “core” that aided in humidity recovery. I wonder how this is done? Anyone know or have a reference?
Years ago (too many) I bought at unit that promised humidity recovery that worked like a “desiccant wheel” where stale are ran through a mesh of material, pie wedge shaped pieces in a wheel, where the wheel rotated though the channel constraining the incoming fresh air, supposedly filtering incoming air and recovering humidity in one go.
Poor design, poor choice on my part. I felt it did not properly keep incoming air separate from contaminants contained in the stale air, especially pathogens, so, after much contemplation, never installed it.
How do these ERV’s manage to get that done safely, with regard to transfer of pathogens?
