"John:  The chase is unlikely to have been treated as "conditioned" space by the builder.  If it is not air sealed it performs basically like a small garage with a fireplace instead of a car in it.  Current code requires an…"

"That is correct Armando. I'm sure we won't be doing anything intrusive with regard to the chase, but I'd like to know if we could seal off the vent, as that was certainly a pathway for outside air to enter into the home."

"Since the credit has been made retroactive and extended (as opposed to being amended or appended), I suspect the forms and procedures for claiming it will not be changed. We should be able to find out most things by referring to the existing…"

"I still wonder why this doesn't show up on the Energy Star or RESNET websites.  I know it's not directly linked to either, but still seems like a huge benefit of going through their systems/requirements."
