HERS score with HRV

Started this discussion. Last reply by Nicholas Burger Jun 7, 2018. 9 Replies

My HERS rater using RemRate software says installing a HRV unit will raise (hurt) my HERS score by 3-4 points. If that's true is this a glitch in the software? This is new construction with 1.09…Continue

"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"

"Gary, I think your point is a good one though. If HERS is an asset score, taking points away for energy but having no points added back for the health/comfort benefits of fresh air seems myopic."

"I agree with David Butler...it really depends on the inputs into the model as well as the efficiency of the HRV. There's a big range of heat transfer and fan motor efficiency in the HRV/ERV world. If the ASHRAE 62.2-2013 ventilation rate…"

"Depends on electric usage & how you have it run - what is he comparing it to? Beyond that you have to have ventilation - as for how you go about it can be a good or bad thing"

HERS score with HRV

My HERS rater using RemRate software says installing a HRV unit will raise (hurt) my HERS score by 3-4 points. If that's true is this a glitch in the software? This is new construction with 1.09 blower door test, using high end variable speed heat pump. Question is, have any of you had this result with HRV?See More
