"Problem with some baths is they don't get enough supply air in so that cuts down on the amount that actually does get exhausted over time - well that & crappy ducting installs 2nd if one goes with an ERV is the air mixing & getting…"

"Dehu in a bath - no you still need to remove odors HRV to bath - only if supply - yes I know some use them for exhaust but that can cause issues in some climates (ERV is definitely a no-no for exhaust) Range hoods - if over 400cfm a makeup supply is…"

"It's called a wet wall - in this case it should be at least 2x6/8 or even 2 2x4 walls with a gap in center to run all the branches up then hopefully through scissor trusses or I-Joists (which you can drill out that large) Now you can drill out…"

"Well as I am reading this --- Nothing is going to stop moisture from forming under said roof as long as it has air from the outside or inside the barn able to get to it (as it contains moisture & this is a nice condensing surface). The only fix…"

Sean Lintow Sr replied to Sean Wiens's discussion Hydronic System Critique
"So just to get this straight - you are also doing radiant cooling via the panels? My only concern with that is will you get enough dehumidification if you run the same temp through the forced air unit? As for heating, hopefully the controls will…"

Sean Lintow Sr replied to Ben Stallings's discussion radon mitigation with HRV?
"Not to my knowledge & I don't think it would be to wise to try it - especially with an ERV. An HRV might be somewhat acceptable (no mixing) but you will never get all the pull you need / what you would get with an underslab style. Of…"

Sean Lintow Sr replied to Haley Keegan's discussion Baffles without soffit vents?
"Wet insulation = less R Value & if in direct contact with sheathing it can get soaked (it still can with a gap if it drops on it - but that means you have an even bigger issue) As you said it all depends on just how much water vapor /…"

Sean Lintow Sr replied to David Holtzclaw's discussion Asphalt coated fiberboard sheating
"It doesn't matter which way said product is facing. The biggest issue is where is the water coming from & stopping it / diverting it after drying out the cavities"

Sean Lintow Sr replied to Haley Keegan's discussion Baffles without soffit vents?
"Ever seen insulation frozen to a roof deck? The problem at least further up north & shoot even other areas down south is moist air flowing through the insulation & then hitting the condensing surface. If said insulation is touching the…"

Sean Lintow Sr replied to Haley Keegan's discussion Baffles without soffit vents?
"Yes  insulation should never touch the sheathing unless it is meant to & designed as a hot roof system. The other item is future proofing - they may close off gables &/or install soffit venting later or even add inline / intake/ eave…"

So you want / need to pass RESNET’s CAZ Tests?

Posted on November 19, 2014 at 10:48am 0 Comments

As many know, by the end of this year all HERS Raters & Field Inspectors (RFI’s) in good standing must complete a three prong CAZ training & testing requirement (assuming it was not part of their original training). While one can debate should they or shouldn’t they have done this, the die has been cast and the mandate has been made. In case this is news to you,…

(AKA a letter of attestation) As some well know, finding or being able to gain the needed project experience can be a rare opportunity. Fortunately though, the chances for many looking in have an opportunity through a…
