Hi, I'm doing a major remodel on my home in San Bruno, zip code 94066. My architect didn't specify an ERV system on the plans, citing it's not required to meet code. But I have heard they could be beneficial. I have not yet begun construction so have time to modify the design. 1) Do you recommend installing one? 2) If so, any tips on how to go about it? or particular brands/systems you'd recommend?
