"Correct,  but if we're worried about depressurizing issues - having at least one very sensitive CO detector to monitor the issue - if make up air is not being supplied."

Don -

Hope you are doing well and enjoying life!

I am working on an IAQ program for existing homes with the EPA and wondered if I could get you to take a look at a short section on combustion safety.  I think it's covered, but I would welcome your input.

Thanks.  Paul
