Kevin DeBord replied to Bachi Brunato's discussion Extraordinarily High CO Reading on a Furnace Vent: 3950 PPM
"The production of carbon monoxide is a byproduct of incomplete combustion and there are numerous possible causes. If you are reading this in the vent (which I assume) it may not necessarily be a leaking heat exchanger (of course it could be). If…"

Kevin DeBord replied to Patrick Michaelyan's discussion Mold Growth & Draftiness Post Energy Improvements
"The previous comments have addressed a lot of good possibilities and areas to look at, but I would like to expound a little further. I hope it helps. As mentioned in several of the other comments sealing a building can cause the inside RH to…"

Kevin DeBord replied to Patrick Michaelyan's discussion Funky Smell in Ductwork
"Obviously all of the prior recommendations could be correct however there is another possibility. In the HVAC industry it's typically referred to as "Dirty Sock Syndrome". It occurs in heat pumps and shows up in the heating cycle. The…"

Kevin DeBord replied to Patrick Michaelyan's discussion Installing additional supply runs from the main trunk.

Kevin DeBord replied to Cierra Mooney's discussion BPI's March Stump the Chump in the group Building Performance Institute (BPI)

Kevin DeBord replied to Judi Lyall's discussion I used the wrong title: What are the pros and cons to a HEAT PUMP not hydronic system in the group HVAC
"Like most subjects this one is more complicated than a brief reply leaves gaps but... Heat pumps are a great option and are used throughout the US. Heat pumps have received some bad press, but a lot of that is because of installation/service/design…"

Kevin DeBord replied to Kent Mitchell's discussion Effective heating for handicapped in the group HVAC
"There are a number of possible solutions, but don't rule out a heat pump. A conventional heat pump should be able to provide the heat needed, even if auxilliary heat is required to supplement. While this has a higher operating cost it may solve…"
