Sean Lintow Sr replied to Greg O'Beirne's discussion Thermal bridging to improve energy efficiency?
"Umm never... We don't like thermal bridges & rather keep conditioned air in

Sean Lintow Sr replied to Chris Jackson's discussion cleaning or replacing?
"Sounds like expansion / contraction is going on. Replacing - probably not but I would have a qualified HVAC guy look at them to see if things were done right & ways to minimize it / or sound transfer

Sean Lintow Sr replied to Brett Little's discussion If libraries had blower doors / duct blasters could virtual audits be the dream?
"More like a nightmare...

"Dehu in a bath - no you still need to remove odors
HRV to bath - only if supply - yes I know some use them for exhaust but that can cause issues in some climates (ERV is definitely a no-no for exhaust)
