The residential ventilation strategy of using an HRV and ZRTs to ventilate bathrooms, instead of using individual bathroom fans, is more cost effective for the builder and for the home owner. Not only is the initial cost of the equipment and installation less expensive: the operating costs are lower as well.
Rather than installing energy-wasting bathroom fans that require individual ducting, it is more advantageous to install zoned exhaust terminals that direct the ventilation capacity of the HRV to the right place at the right time, while recovering most of the heat in the exhaust air.
And there are many other advantages to our approach:
- Tighter building envelope and more attractive home exterior (fewer penetrations)
- More balanced ventilation, avoiding negative pressure
- Quieter operation
- Avoids user error of leaving the fans on for extended periods
