I need some help deciding on ventilation for my basement ~1700sq feet.
I do have moisture problem in the basement (no leaks) that contributes to the musty smell, which is bothersome. I wold like to use the space and finish the basement. I should also mentioned is that basement does not have air return with central HVAC, the exhausts are present though.
I do plan to waterproof in the next few years, but for now I think good ventilation system might help.
the house is in Cleveland, Ohio
I need help deciding whether I need to use HRV or ERV unit, and the size of the unit.
Also my thinking is to have separate ventilation system for the basement and not the one tied into central HVAC.
