This 1-hour training covering the spectrum of Good, Better & Best practices when designing and QC’ing heat recovery ventilator (HRV) / energy recovery ventilator (ERV) systems.

Join this session and hear from in-the-field experts as they exchange ideas and drill down into the everyday implications and opportunities that all building professionals need to know when overseeing the proper design and installation of ERV & HRV balanced ventilation systems.  

Presenters will discuss the practical and necessary solutions that will help you ensure these systems are designed, installed and performing as expected, as well as provide insights to help you streamline your design and building practices to ensure efficient, effective ventilation systems.

As energy codes advance across the Northwest, requirements to install higher performing balanced and properly distributed HVAC systems inside the conditioned spaces are leading builders and tradespeople to evaluate new ERV & HRV equipment, designs and installation strategies. Benefit from this info that will help you meet new codes and build homes that will improve the comfort, healthy indoor air, and energy efficiency.
