I'll try to keep my explanation brief. We had a 4-ton Carrier Infinity AC and air handler/furnace installed 3 years ago. The unit is in what used to be a garage, now it's in a conditioned space. The AC company installed three returns, two in an L-shaped hallway and one in the office. The company failed inspection three times due to improper installation: no emergency drain...wrong juice to unit...leaks...returns not seated...it goes on and on. I have an Aprilaire merv 13 filter that I have to change every three months due to dirt and dust. My home is very clean, I vacuum every day -- the flooring is half carpet, half wood flooring. We are not getting fresh air, and we are thinking about having a spot ERV installed. Where is the best place to install it? Sorry for being so wordy, but I am so frustrated. I can't seem to find anyone in my area that knows what it is or how to do it.
