    HRV fresh air duct termination points?

    Hi, all.

    I've asked an HVAC contractor to quote the retro fit of an HRV system into our house. We need the system because no ventilation was built into our house 5 years ago and each winter our windows are covered with water in the morning.

    The contractor suggested terminating the fresh air ducts into our bedroom closets and drawing air from our bathrooms, kitchen, laundry rooms. I don't know if the fresh air termination points will help deal with our humidity problem? I thought the fresh air termination points might be closer to the windows but it might be too difficult to get there in our finished attic.
    Does anyone know if this kind of ducting plan will work for us?

    PS we live in a one level, 2,000 sq ft home with radiant floor heating. Not sure if any more info is needed?

    Thank you all!

    Not if you keep the closet doors closed, and there are no supply vents in the closets.

    What kind of heat do you have.

    How many times must one fix something before it is fixed?

    Thanks, beenthere.

    We have radiant floor heating. Sounds like I should get another estimate...
