Recommendations for a HRV or ERV
I’ve asked a couple questions already regarding ventilation for a 1400 square foot house I am in the middle of building. Like most topics it takes a few discussions to start to come around to the solution that makes the most sense.
This is a budget minded project, I am half tempted to install bath fans and call it a day. but in the back of my mind I want to do better than that.
At the moment I am considering the Intellibalance ERV and ducting with a mix of rigid and flexible 4 inch pipe. This option looks like it’d run about $1000 plus all the pipes and registers and time to install.
The Lunos spot fans look interesting. I figure I would want 4 of them for a 3 bed house of this size. That will run me $2000 but saves a lot on piping cost and the time doing it. They look like a slam dunk for simplicity. Not sure about motor noise though.
Thanks for your patience trying to help me arrive at a good solution on this. I wish it was in the budget to hire an HVAC company to install the top of the line euro unit, but that is not the case. Cheers.
