Having a green home often means low energy which equates to a tight home. How tight-,some say 100% tight and condition all the air brought into a home and recover any heat exhausted from a home. That means the mechanical system needs to be maintained and in perfect running order.
I have done many surveys for energy loss and I always find places for improvement, but I am troubled with how tight to make a home. There is something said for health. A new home has many odors that may not be pleasing for sometimes months and windows need to be opened.
One may use less energy over all but is a home that can't breath on its own worse on the owner? I think there is such a thing as too tight.
What does TOH and many of the educated listners think?
Thank in advance
