Do we need an ERV?
Asking some questions as we are approaching this decision on our new build.
It will have a certified blower test (earthcraft) & rafters will be foam & walls will be blown closed cell.
Build is in Mid-Atlantic with humidity & 90's in summer & mid 40's winters.
Cooking over 30" gas range with 600 cfm hood vent.
While we will be house tight we are allergic still to smells ,dryness & even humidity if the latter does infiltrate.
Assuming we need an ERV:
1) What are some good moderately priced unit that provides good value & performance?
2) Is the term ERV same as MUA (makeup air)?
Thanks for any ideas.
