If you live in a mild climate with tolerable summer humidity, is it reasonable to have fresh air intake directly into home rather than ERV/HRV?
Edit: My setup is pretty similar to the duct diagram figure in this article: https://www.energyvanguard.com/blog/why-i-m-not-a-fan-of-positive-pressure-mechanical-ventilation/
Except that I have an actual fan (Fg8) to go along with the dampers for the air intake, and all of my equipment is in a basement garage.
Edit 2: My furnace blower motor uses about 50 watts when in “fan only” mode.
