Rig an HRV to act as a makeup air unit
I’ve got some greentec HRV’s in my new house.
From what I understand, its possible to change fan speed on the intake/exhaust as to balance the system.
I’ve seen units like the Best by Broan MD6TU 6″ UNIVERSAL MAKE-UP AIR DAMPER what you can put a a sensor in your range hood duct or dryer duct, that if they are activated a flap opens to allow air to directly flow in thereby compensating for the air being removed.
It would be neat if it could be rigged into the HRV that if an appliance like a range hood or dryer is turned on it automatically increases just the intake air.
Does such a controller exist or is this not a good idea?
