"I'm not sure we're thinking about the right comparison here. The comparison isn't a 1ach house with and without an HRV, since it wouldn't be responsible to build such a tight house and not provide some kind of…"

"LOL, it is an energy asset score not a health score :) You want points for health you got to look for other certifications which most use HERS for the energy part"

HERS score with HRV
