Secondly, is there a way to tell if the HRV system is working or not? I did turn on the HRV from the controller (that is installed on the entrance) but is there a way to actually tell that if the HRV is turn on and working fine?

HRVs in Ottawa are usually installed either fully ducted (connected to all bathrooms, kitchen and laundry room) or simplified (connected only to your main return). Most Ottawa builders that I have seen usually install simplified setups. Fully ducted is usually an upgrade (though some builders may offer it as standard).

I guess you could go downstairs and listen to it to see if it is on. Other than that there really isn't an easy way. Does your furnace fan come on when you turn on the HRV (you can feel any heating vent to see if it is on).
