This is my dilemma. We have built an ICF house with 3400 sq feet.
I currently have planned for an HRV unit but the HVAC installer recommends saving some money and using the Honeywell Fresh Air Ventilator. He also said that from what he has seen is that many people dont change the filters in the HRVs and the motors burn out after two years or so. Then the people dont even use the HRVS.
Have you seen this in using HRV's?
I am very concerned about fresh air in an ICF house. I am also very concerned with energy effeciency, it does not seem that a fresh air ventillator like this is very effecient. What do you think on this issue?
I live in Northeast Ohio. So it gets pretty cold for 5-6 months per year.
