Do I need a HRV in Ontario

Hi all.

Looking at putting in a wood stove where the gas fireplace is now. House was built in 1955.

Do I have to put in a hrv by code?

you would have to get it installed by a licensed installer. When you get quotes they will tell you if you need it or not.

A house built in 1955 does not need an HRV as there will already be plenty of air exchange happening.
