HRV w/ Smoke Filtration
We just remodeled a 1000SF house with closed cell foam in walls and roofline. I have a small loft in the middle and attic space all the way around it, so pretty good access to all first floor room ceilings and some room for equipment (2 bedrooms, 1 bath, combined living room and kitchen). We also have a 2′ tall crawl space underfloor that is accessible from outside.
I live in dry climate. Temps in the summer reach 80-100 and temps in the winter 0-40. I live in an area that has wildfire smoke in the summer.
We have 1 head minisplit in living room for heating and cooling of entire house.
Currently have to keep a few windows cracked in order for to get fresh air, but I am concerned that this will be a problem when it is smoky. Wondering if HRV would be a good idea and if there is one that can filter smoke. Looking back, we probably should have put in central system with filters, but I think that ship has sailed.
Thanks in advance.
