The assurance of comfort and indoor high air quality for building occupants is central to a Passive House certification. Fluctuations in indoor temperatures, and air quality concerning both CO2 as well as humidity are, of course, important factors of comfort. The quality of a building’s H/ERV has a significant influence on both temperature and air quality. So what makes certified Passive House mechanical ventilation equipment protocols so different?
In this paper Tomás O’Leary (Passive House Academy) and Andrew Peel (Peel Passive House Consulting) provide a much needed comprehensive insight on quality assurance of both heat recovery ventilators (HRVs) and energy recovery ventilators (ERVs) used to provide fresh and tempered air to Passive House buildings.
