One of my builders have decided to add fresh air vent to his houses. Houses are in Oklahoma with high moisture content air and hot/warm summer weather. Is this going to cause moisture problem in the house? Also how do you incorporate the vent when modeling this in Rem calculations?

Thank you

A balanced ventilation system usually has two fans and two piping systems. Fresh air supply and exhaust valves can be installed in all rooms, but a balanced ventilation system is designed to provide fresh air to rooms and living rooms where residents spend most of their time. Balanced ventilation systems must be modeled with Apparent Sensible Effectiveness (ASE), Rate, Hours/Day and Fan watts accurate to the equipment being used. Air source heat pumps shall be modeled within the range of 8 to 10 HSPF. If you are looking for more information you could contact at White Mechanical, Inc. your trusted leader in quality Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning (HVAC) service, installation, and maintenance.

A heat pump is a device that takes heat from one source and moves it to another location through electric or mechanical means. Heat pumps may be used either to heat or cool.

The main advantages of mini split heat pump are their small size and flexibility for zoning or heating and cooling individual rooms. Many models can have as many as four indoor air handling units (for four zones or rooms) connected to one outdoor unit.
