How to determine COP for an ERV

srivenkat | Posted in Energy Efficiency and Durability on


I am trying to figure out the COP for ERVs. For example, if an ERV consumes 40W for 70 CFM with a Heat Recovery Efficiency of 96%, how to arrive at the COP for the energy that has been recovered for a space of 20,000 Cubic Feet.
