Just because you have a system installed doesn't mean you have to have it turned on all of the time, the inspector might want it hard wired in but you'll need a service switch and you might as well replace that $0.39 switch with a timer so the vent fan comes on when you want it to instead of being on all of the time.
heat recovery systems do an amazing job and if a bath vent fan will move enough air to comply with code then you might as well install a bath vent fan with a heat recovery heat exchanger in it because it will keep 80%+ of that heat or cool that is inside of your house inside instead of venting it all outside.
