Can I run AC through the HRV ducting I already have? I don't like the
look or noise of mini splits, so am looking for any other option. My
HVAC guy says that an AC unit will freeze up, as the HRV ducts are too
small. I did have one run through similar HRV ducts in my old home
without problem, however.
Does anyone have any experience with such a configuration? I've
googled, but came up empty.
Should add that I don't need much cooling....it's the humidity that's
the problem. House is well insulated and sealed. However, I'm on the
water so humidity gets to 80% in the house unless I run a dehumidifier.
Running it raises the heat in the house 8F and doubles my hydro
