Don Stevens replied to Jennifer Luitwieler's discussion Panasonic Whisper Green w Ductless heat Pump in the group 1000 Home Challenge
"Linda:   I would suggest using the 130 cfm DC fan, the Panasonic FV-13VKS3, mounted in the insulated ceiling or in a thick wall (2x8 depth needed) pointed down so that the discharge could be connected to one of your existing 4x16 vertical duct…"

"I have been asked that question since we first required house tightening and mechanical whole building exhaust in the Northwest in 1983 and I have spent the past 30 years trying to answer it.  Several commentors above hit the concept right on…"
