[Bldg-sim] Residential ERV in Equest

I'm looking for help in how to correctly specify an ERV for a 
residential application. Unfortunately, the two available HVAC systems 
in Equest for residential do not support an ERV. I'm afraid if I choose 
any of the other commercial based systems that the fan loads, internal 
gains and the rest will be very inaccurate.

Does anyone have much experience with modeling HVAC systems for 
residential buildings? Even more tricky is that I'm doing this on a 
single family home, not multifamily, which seems to be all that Equest 
can really support.

Please cc a reply to my email address as well: adam at sustainablybuilt.com

Thanks for any advice!
