what about energy or heat recovery ventilators. I would have like to see more information on those. I doubt this season of dust and smoke is a one off and the option to build better homes and renovations for current and future conditions must be considered

Matt Beitzel a Heat Recovery Ventilation system will indeed keep your indoor air clean; not only from outside air pollution like smoke but from indoor air pollution such as CO2 and VOC’s. However you won’t achieve anywhere near the best or most cost effective results without sealing the building properly first. Passive House is the ideal way to implement such a system to keep the building comfortable, healthy and efficient all at the same time.
