    @Calum, Ive been running it now for almost 2 months. We are living in the house now. I fell about 2 months behind on blogging because I was completing alot of the interior work ...

    Makes sense. I’m assuming that the same logic in about of open cell foam does NOT apply to sprayfoam applied from my attic onto the underside of my roof - technically onto a mixture of ...

    First of all...Thank you for this great article. I know you said, in no uncertain terms, do not install tongue and groove ceilings nor install recessed lighting BUT if I use closed cell spray ...

    You might review below to decide if you prefer Typar over Tyvek for lower perms. https://buildingscience.com/documents/building-science-insights/bsi-061-inward-drive-outward-drying Might ...

    Thank You very much to all the experts that have chimed in here on my design questions. What I am taking away is that I would probably be better off focusing on: 1. better air tightness 2. ...

    Corey, You will be better off with 1/2" or 3/4" plywood strips tha Cor-a-Vent if you are using Hardie Panels and Battens. Shooting trim-nails through that much cement-based materials is a bit ...

    As the others have suggested, your descriptions do not suggest any problems with the insulation in the attic. having insulation in both the attic floor and roof is not generally a bad thing, and ...

    Jon R, I'm assuming the condensation on the pipes and toilets was directed at me..? I agree, wholeheartedly. What do you recommend as a heaters for that situation? There isn't an element ...
  • Jon R | May 22,2018 08:36 PM EDT
    The reduced power draw as you decrease flow and increase pressure (at the pump) is not at all linear. There is definitely a pump energy efficiency hit when using a CSV. I dislike ...

    You don't think that it could be the extra 1300 sqft that I am having to cool in the attic, and not having any A/C ducts up there? That was my best possible answer as I have done an energy ...

    We just had the same CSV installed with our humdrum (Berkely 3/4 HP) pump 400 ft deep here in MA. CSVs are not usual around here, according to my contractors. The house is still under ...

    Thanks for the response Dana, that's helpful. If this were a home I would undoubtedly take it the extra step. Since it's somewhere between a garage and a man cave, I was curious if I could save ...

    It's fine to leave the rafter bays empty from a moisture point of view, but it would also be fine to fill them. A couple inches of closed cell foam is fairly pathetic performance, in part because ...

    The FLIR shows 58 for the cold and 64 for the warm in the post image software (I have a Cat S60 phone integrated with FLIR). That is residual heat though, since the image was taken after the ...
  • Dana Dorsett | May 22,2018 04:00 PM EDT
    I definitely noticed the stark color contrast, and wondered what temperatures the FLIR would report if zoomed in on the parallel cold & tepid water pipes!
  • Lance Peters | May 22,2018 04:00 PM EDT
    When you look at a pump curve, it is easy to see how the clams made for the CSV pan out. Restricting a centrifugal pump reduces the amount of work it's doing, resulting in reduced current draw. ...
  • pat beurskens | May 22,2018 03:42 PM EDT
    Totally agree Dana. My apologies if these thermal images are misleading. The color of the frame relative to the hottest and coolest spots is why the lower drain looks as hot as the upper ...
  • Dana Dorsett | May 22,2018 03:26 PM EDT
    The emissivity of bare copper is VERY low compared to most construction materials, so the temperature numbers reported by the camera is probably off by quite a bit. With the pseudocolor ...

    Thanks Martin. I read Marc's article but the horizontal device wouldn't work for my installation. These units are a no brainer for payoff period. Thanks again to you (in Musings, including ...
  • Reid Baldwin | May 22,2018 03:22 PM EDT
    I believe the CERV measures the CO2 in the air that is flowing through the ductwork, That works in a system like CERV that alternates between recirculation and ventilation, but wouldn't work in an ...
