George W. Reynolds replied to John Redmond's discussion Are we setting ourselves up for a huge liability?
"One thing that I believe could become an issue is that the tighter the house, the quicker it will become toxic without electricity. The problem goes beyond mold. It is aerosols from high velocity efficient toilets, active radon mitigation…"

George W. Reynolds commented on Chris Morin's blog post New England; HRV or ERV?
"Do the manufactures of ERV's certify that only moisture (H2O distilled grade) will transfer into the fresh air side and that water soluble toxins and aerosols remain in the exhaust stream?"

George W. Reynolds replied to Jamie Kaye's discussion Thermal imaging while foam is being installed...possible? in the group INFRARED THERMOGRAPHY USERS
"With very little cure time you are sure to get a lot of deltaT. I would also recommend covering the lens/camera with a thin plastic bag to avoid the isocynate aerosols. Use a smoke pencil to confirm that areas of cold contrast are infiltration."

George W. Reynolds replied to Jon LaMonte's discussion Are Zoned Heating/Cooling Systems a Good Idea or a Bad Idea?
