'Home Diagnosis' co-host Corbett Lunsford visits the home of AirCycler's Jason Wolfson to discuss and test the 3 simplest, quickest methods to ventilate any home: exhaust only (1:26), supply only (5:02), and exhaust + supply (8:51) using an AirCycler G2 controller. Tested using the Testo 440 kit from TruTech Tools.
