HRV off/Furnace on
Wow, I haven't posted hear in a long while but it was very helpful last time so I'll try again. Thanks.
We have a brand new HRV and HE furnace installed in our older home. The HRV is a partially dedicated system. When the HRV is turned on the furnace fan turns on in unison. It was recommended to me by the installer to keep the HRV on at all times summer and winter. I have since been reading that the HRV should be off in the summer in my climate as it may increase humidity in the home. (I'm in Saskatoon,SK Canada, think cold/dry winter and warm summers). I was thinking of just letting the furnace fan run for circulation and leaving HRV off but I was wondering if this will bugger anything up? If my HRV is off, will the furnace still pull air in and circulate it properly? Now that I think about it would it make any difference at all? Either device would pull air in it's just that the HRV would precondition that air. I must be missing something. Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks.
