these are _bidirectional_ heat exchangers. condense on the way out
and evaporate on the way in.

so don't. it's very hard to seal up a house so tight that it accumulates
moisture from human activities in wintertime.

it's more energy-efficient to also recover latent heat,
if you want to live in a humid house in a cold climate.
