ERV Vents

Quick shot of the incoming and exhaust ERV vents right at the top of the house. The freshest mountain air is up here and the ERV sends it all round the house. The vents are faced in opposite direction from one another to avoid cross-ventilation. So happy with the ERV!

ERV Finally installed!

It took a year of breathing stale stale air but today at last the final essential component of this passive house was installed.

A WhisperComfort Panasonic spot Energy Recovery Ventilator (FV-04VE1) bought in the US from (great supplier!) for $310. Fresh air at long last! Feels like having all the windows open without the hot humid air of summer coming in the house. Magic! A real difference to the quality of life.
