HRV supply to bedroom closet floors
I recently changed my plans from ventilating with an AirCycler on my new build to installing an HRV. After some research, I was concerned that my wife would find the unheated air flow of the furnace fan uncomfortable. I turned the fan on without telling her one day and within minutes, she was asking why cold (or cold feeling) air was coming out of the furnace vents.
Unfortunately, I’m late in the game. My house is nearly finished, so I am trying to put together a simple dedicated duct plan that will go unnoticed by my wife’s temperature sensitivity. I’m comfortable with my exhaust duct plan, but has anyone tried putting supply grilles in the bedroom closet floor? I know the wall is better, but I don’t know if that would matter in a closet, and the wall would be more difficult at this point in the build. Doors will be solid, with an approximately 1″ x 48″ long gap at the bottom. House is located in zone 5.
