how do I maximize the use of my ERV in my Passivhaus(Vancouver canada)

hotell | Posted in PassivHaus on

we are in a new home that meets the International Passivhaus Standard
we have 2Ultimateair Ervs, one for upper floor where my daughter lives (1700sqft)
one for main floor(1800sqft), we live in a moderate moist climate Vancouver BC.
what is the best way to maximize the benefits, save energy and have a comfortable home?
eg should it run constantly in winter? what happens when bathroom window is left open?
