    Should those responsible for the MUAs and other ventilation systems be considering energy-recovery ventilators, where the exhaust air is used to warm (or seasonally, cool) incoming ventilation air?

    For replacement MAUs I think the issue is that it is cost prohibitive, or even impossible, to retrofit a heat recovery system to a building that wasn’t designed for one when it was built. I could be wrong, but that’s my impression.

    Please spread the word!
