Can I pay more to have an HRV installed in my unit?

A resolution to include Heat Recovery Ventilators (HRV) in our building remediation was defeated by owners at our Special General Meeting last September.

Subsequent to that, your Joint Committee asked RDH to explore feasibility and options for individual owners who might be prepared to pay more for HRV installation individually. 

Unfortunately, because HRVs change the overall way the building “breathes” (relying less on the Make Up Air Unit and more on individual HRVs in each unit), it was determined that HRVs should not be considered on a “per unit” basis. Even if that were not the case, the additional ducting and wiring required were deemed too cost prohibitive and invasive. 

However, once our new windows are installed, there should be a marked improvement on heat retention (winter) and dissipation (summer).
