Morgan M Audetat replied to Larry Schaffert's discussion How to correctly insulate exterior wall in a 1900 house?
"Why would you want to get it off? Foaming in block of XPS does not work long term. If the wall is 2x6 or greater a foam with glass application can work. We use this basements with smooth walls gluing XPS to the outside and adding 2x4 with un-faced…"

Morgan M Audetat replied to Dan Wise's discussion Convert BTU/hr in a Manual J to actual fuel usages
""Actual fuel and electrical usage" is anecdotal at best. Bin is the thing and ASHRAE/Manual 'J' have the average weather data relevant to the building site.  The operate can cheat the numbers to add what ever he likes, but…"

Morgan M Audetat replied to Rod Fox's discussion Does altitude affect AFUE? or just the input/output BTUs?
"First, it is the wrong question. AFUE is a comparative consumer number whereby the layman is presumably assisted in choosing an appliance by its advertised efficiency.  If we are addressing condensing appliances, all others being a waste of…"
