Recommendation for HRV/ERV in CZ 4a Basement
I’m looking for a recommendation for either an HRV or ERV in my finished basement (+/- 300 SF). Climate Zone 4a (Westchester County, just north of NYC). Looking to spend in the +/- $400-$1000 range.
Unfortunately the Lunos products don’t work since I’m sub-grade and it would require a small duct/90-degree bend since I I would run through my rim joist into the basement ceiling. Lunos are completely ductless.
I’ve also looked at the Panasonic Whispercomfort ERV, which really looks great. However, since I’m in climate zone 4a, it looks less than ideal for a few months out of the year in the colder months. Although I’m open to it, especially given the $420 price tag, if anyone has a good experience with this unit working in the “Frost Prevention Mode.”
