Zeroing in on Balanced Ventilation: ERVs – How They Work and Why They are Important

Most of us understand the general concept of balanced ventilation in a home, but what options exist beyond installing an energy recovery ventilator? In this session, Dan Wildenhaus, Shaun Hassel and Ken Nelson will look at when balanced ventilation matters the most, the options for achieving balanced whole-house ventilation, the benefits you can sell with whole-house balanced ventilation, and the cost-effective solutions to providing this in a variety of home types. The session will wrap up with stories from the field, both from our presenters and from an engaged audience.

As we move forward with Energy Codes, balanced ventilation is now more than just a best practice, it’s required! In Oregon, for many builders, this new requirement is like going from 0 to 60 in one step, something that many are struggling to find a cost-effective solution for. This session will showcase new and useful information to make balanced ventilation adoption easier. Understanding how to build value with ERVs will help builders enhance the value of their product.
