Sean Lintow Sr replied to Luis Hernandez's discussion ERV Configuration
"Simple is best - pull from one area & deliver to another. I prefer supply by sleeping area & pulling from living area but that is with things open. Now it gets down to what is available, etc... For example you may have a closet where it goes…"

Sean Lintow Sr replied to Eric Miller's discussion Condensation from ceiling vent fan in barn bathroom
"Flex is the worst product you can use, especially with it sloping back into the bath. You say it slopes up 8" - but how far is the run? Out a side wall or... Your best bet is to install in the ceiling so you don't have to slope it up…"

Posted on November 19, 2014 at 7:48am 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.
