Stan Kuhn replied to John Shillito's discussion Moisture/Mold on rim joist; in the group Best Practices (Residential)
"Try the easy things first; lower the humidity to attempt to lower the dew point at the rim, and maybe that will solve the problem.  If not:  I have developed an aversion to spray foam for various reasons, mainly the chemicals, since we…"

"I did radon testing for 10 years as a home inspector, and in order to be certified to perform the testing I was required to take a 40-hour course on radon, soup-to-nuts, including the effects and statistics on health.  Before the learning…"

Gavin Healy replied to Stan Kuhn's discussion How To Deal With Sprinkler Piping Installation in the group Home Energy Ratings
"Hi Stan, We have been dealing with this for a while.  Aside from the insulation freeze issued which if sever enough may warrant  a glycol system (not the greatest option since it requires third party inspections for perpetuity.  The…"

Stan Kuhn replied to Jim Gunshinan's discussion When your shower is in your kitchen...
"I think this is in the wrong Forum, it belongs in Hall of Shame.  One the dumbest ones I've seen, and I've seen a bunch.  Assuming the range exhaust is 100 cfm or better (right!), it may not present a huge moisture issue if the…"

Stan Kuhn replied to Bud Poll's discussion CO poisoning in Yarmouth Maine
"Those of us who know the story about CO detectors need to work to get low-level ones required, or have the UL listing require one that really protects human life.  The home store things will hopefully prevent death, depending upon the person,…"

Stan Kuhn replied to Sean Lintow Sr's discussion Water Saver or Gimmick? in the group Best Practices (Residential)
"The story I got was that it's for those folks who turn the shower on, then shave, brush teeth (or do other things) while waiting for the water to get hot.  I guess some homes have a really long wait time(!)  I was taught early on to…"

Stan Kuhn replied to Kari Sauder's discussion Needed: High Efficiency NG HVAC for a 2,100 sf single story building in the group HVAC
"Keri, my thoughts are that you do NOT want a wall heater at each end, unless uneven heating isn't a concern.  What about cooling?  Is it needed/wanted?  If you go with a high efficiency furnace it will be direct vent.  I…"

Stan Kuhn replied to Mike Kandel's discussion BPI Launches Home Rating Program Using DOE's Home Energy Score
"If there is a comprehensive energy audit, the HES will very likely be proven as just a guess based upon the averages.  And I seriously doubt it will be marketed for what it is.  But the taxpayers have already paid out millions and there…"

Stan Kuhn replied to Matthew Damon's discussion Upgrading a vented tongue and groove cathedral ceiling in the group Best Practices (Residential)
"The topic has been discussed ad infinitum at the linkedin group Bud shared.  I see this a lot; "High end home, but low budget."  Ironic to me.  If they want it fixed they need to pay the freight.  Do it right, or…"

Stan Kuhn replied to James Murray's discussion Water Water Everywhere
