ERV ensures indoor air quality in high performance home
The goals for Su Verde, the Proud Green Home of Louisville, call for it to be a very tight home. The insulated concrete form construction, coupled with the Huber Zip System taped sheathing in the wood frame sections, means the flow of air through the home will be minimal.
That's why builder Sy Safi of UberGreen Spaces & Homes, is incorporating an ERV whole house mechanical ventilation system into the home. It will provide a flow of fresh air into the home and temper the air at the same time, resulting in a very even, comfortable temperature throughout the house.
Safi and Larry Panziano, technical sales representative with Zehnder America, review the Zehnder ComfoAir energy recovery ventilator system that will be installed in the home.
