Panasonic ERV Hack
Has anyone ever tried the hack that Corbett uses in this video for his tiny house?
I’m thinking about doing it for the “master suite” in our house. Here’s a floor plan to peruse:
The “master” is used as a home office / home theater / guest room, so the room has its door closed a lot and gets stuffy with high CO2 levels pretty quick. Alone it goes up to 1500 PPM pretty quick, and two people it’s at 2500 PPM within an hour.
I’m thinking of putting in this Panasonic Whispercomfort SPOT ERV in the bathroom, and doing the hack so the supply goes into the room. The existing bath fan exhausts through the wall, and I would reuse that penetration.
I’m also trying to figure out what to do to ventilate the rest of the house, as the baseline CO2 is about 1300 with the four creatures that live here: 2 adults, 1 child, 1 big dog. Happy to hear all thoughts!
