HRV System Best Practices

Achieving reliable ventilation effectiveness in relatively tight homes requires a balanced system. Heat recovery ventilators, HRVs, are the optimal home ventilation system for
the Northwest. Energy recovery ventilators, ERVs, are better suited for humid climates and do not perform well in our dry summer conditions. Due to complexity and added operational costs, we also don’t recommend integrated HRV/ERV systems. Read below for tips and recommendations to make the most of your HRV installation—unless properly designed, installed and operated, an HRV may not save more energy than an exhaust fan.
