Passive House Ventilation Design (Chad Ludman) 1.20.2010

This article outlines the Passive House standard and explains the functionality of ERVs. Author Chad Ludman has this to say, "If you want to buy in the US, you have one choice – The UltimateAir RecoupAerator.  This bad boy comes in black, runs at 95% efficiency and sucks a paltry 40 Watts while delivering 70 cfm to your home (250W @ 200cfm). This is what we spec’ed on 100K and continue to use in Passive and for all foreseeable projects in the future. We set it on its lowest setting which usually measures about 60cfm in each room vent and let it run 24/7/365. Simple."
