I am building a net zero house, 2000 SF, 2 stories in Mystic CT. It has 2 full baths, heating and cooling by 2 mini splits, ventilation with an HRV, range hood in kitchen (not sure if it will have makeup air capability). Most of what I have read says to exhaust from bathrooms, laundry room and maybe the kitchen. Supply to bedrooms and living room.
Q1 – Will the ventilation system blowing air into the bedrooms prevent conditioned air from getting into the bedrooms?
Q2 – Can I use the HRV high mode in lieu of bath fans and can it be programmed to run automatically for a set time after the shower is used?
Q3 – what are the pros and cons of having (or not having) a makeup air unit for the kitchen hood fan?
