HRV system design
Building a new home located in Osaca, Ontario (East of Toronto) just in early design stage. Single storey with full conditioned walk-out basement (2200 sq’ per floor). Truss attic with blown cellulose insulation. Hoping to build pretty good or if possible Net-Zero home. Looking at HRV or ERV design for the home, I have a couple questions.
1. The Kitchen and living area are open to each other both roughly same size (15×18). I assume its fine to have the fresh air at one end and the exhaust (kitchen area) at the other? No problems being in the “same room “.
2. Is it fine to have the vents fresh or exhaust on the walls and not in the ceiling? If they have to be in ceiling, they would be in the un-condition attic space covered in cellulose. Hopefully 24”
I have read many articles but may have missed one answering my questions.
