HRVs, Part 1 of 3: Why Houses Need Them & What They Do
New Houses Don't Breathe As most people know, new houses are constructed much tighter than they used to be - they don't leak air all over the place. I've heard a lot of old-school home inspectors and building contractors complain about this, and you probably have too. The rant goes something like this: "We build houses so tight that they don't breathe, and they end up rotting from the inside out! Things were a lot better when we didn't have all these stupid house wraps."
