distance from HRV input to heating output vent?
We just moved into a new house and they are still in the process of finishing the basement. The downstairs bathroom has a separate stall or room, with door for the toilet (29"w x 71"d). The room currently has a heating vent on the ceiling and I was told there would be a dual sided air exchanger vent (to share with the bathroom outside of the toilet room), unfortunately, they didn't put in the air exchanger vent. I am in contact with our builder about this, but I wanted to be pre-armed with some info.
Any location they put an air exchanger vent, will be within a couple feet of the heating vent, which is the same vent that the air exchanger vents out of. Thinking this will reduce air circulation in the toilet room since any fresh air coming out will get immediately sucked in by the air exchanger vent up by the ceiling. So, maybe the HVAC guys left out the air exchanger vent on purpose?
We had a similar sized toilet room in our last place and the builder didn't put in an air exchanger vent into the toilet room or a heating vent, so the room was super stuffy and got really hot with no air movement, if you closed the door (not to mention the smell would stay with you until you opened the toilet room door!!).. So, with this house I wanted to make sure there was ventilation. Maybe having the vent pumping out fresh air into the room is enough and an input vent isn't needed inside the room?
Any opinions? If you need clarification on anything, please ask as I am likely not using the correct HVAC terms! Thanks!
