Welcome back to our Question of the Week Series.
This week, we helped a customer in Virginia understand considerations of humidity control while using the Lunos HRV system.
Do you know if the Lunos eGO can be hooked up to a humidistat that can be purchased at a place like Home Depot? Finally, are you aware of any options to hook it up to a pressure sensor? Specifically, to hook the intake fan up to a pressure sensor so that when you run something like your dryer, the eGo’s intake fan comes on automatically?”
We’re having some trouble hooking up our Lunos eGo to the standard Leviton IPHS5 humidistat. Primarily because the Universal Controller only allows 12 volts out, and the Leviton requires a standard 120v. Are you aware of any low-voltage humidistats that would work with the eGo? I couldn’t find anything on the foursevenfive website.
Yes, you can hook the eGO up to a humidistat – it will autorestart when it gets powered at the flow you had set it at.
We would always recommend to have the eGO running in HRV mode, and not turn it off.
Alternatively, you can purchase a Lunos touch air controller, which will allow you to have it respond to humidity, program flowrates etc.
