The <a href="http://www.lifebreath.com">Nutech Lifebreath</a> is the standard of the industry, with innumerable private-label units. However, the <a href="http://www.ultimateair.com">Stirling ERV at UltimateAir</a> is even more efficient and may also offer lower operating costs to boot (thanks Jerry!).

    Well, vanee(aka venmar) and life breath are two options...

    there are others...best thing to advise you to do is take a look at various methods of determining the cfm's for the rooms and match that to the one that fits your need. you might want to go to a sheetmetal company and get a quick course on whats what . and also might want to spend the dollar on a couple tools for the work...one other thing...a boxed soffit and a pipe chase through the back of a closet or along an inside or an outside corner can make for some excellent installs...that way you can stay away from abortive conglomerations or fittings that look straight buh aint the right thing to use....pay close attention to sealing the fittings lengths,also use tape small stichers are good too...think of insulation also, sound insulation...Well....Constantin types fasternme *~/:)
