Help for new Broan Smartsense fans as alternative to HRV
I have seen articles here talking about the new Broan Smartsense ventilation fan system and had a few questions about using it as an alternative to an HRV…
I am curious if anyone has used them, or designed a house for them – we are in our final design phase and our plan checking company requires make up air calculations.
2800 sq/ft 2 story house – stick built – California climate zone 3
The idea is to put in 5 Broan fans – then have the makeup air dampers attached to them.
My question is where do the intakes go? To the bedrooms (3), the upstairs (1), laundry (1)
Or do the fans auto reverse and use the same ducting for incoming air when needed – or do they exhaust a room while the electronics open a damper on an intake line to let in fresh air?
Sorry if this seems like a dumb post, but the system seems new and doesn’t have much online about it.
