"In my opinion, it is often too late to tighten up near end of construction, but something like http://www.jlconline.com/how-to/insulation/a-game-changer-for-airtight-construction_o may help them. No idea on durability of system and what VOC's…"

Sean Wiens replied to Pamela Brown's discussion Condensation on an interior wall of a detached garage.
"It could be that the ridge vents themselves have caused an increase in humidity.  Did you remove standard box vents when you installed the ridge vents?  Do the ridge vents have a fabric bug screen? I noticed in one of the photos that…"

"David N, as mentioned this is a suspended concrete slab over a room below.  So no, this is not a ground water issue, this is condensation occurring because the slab temp is below the dew point of the exterior air (the house is not yet heated)."

Sean Wiens replied to Don Fugler's discussion joining ducts in the group HVAC
"Apparently the air passing over the PVC creates a strong static field that in turn impedes air flow."

Sean Wiens replied to Don Fugler's discussion joining ducts in the group HVAC
"Thanks David - I was going to look at PVC for the HRV but was cautioned against it, not because of the offgassing (which would not be relevant for dryer), but because the static build up leading to a high resistance to air flow."
Nov 18, 2017
Sean Wiens replied to Don Fugler's discussion joining ducts in the group HVAC
"Various studies have indicated very little air flow along surface of duct (for ventilation - have not studied forced air).  So if this is for venting, the screws would not be an issue at all as the pressures are to low.  This document…"
