Weatherization Problems (04-05-10)

Today the Energy Trust-approved contractor came to conduct a test on the house. He installed large fan over the front door frame and sucked air out of the house. The results now point to a new series of problems: the house apparently failed the test and leaks like a sieve. The guy told Gary that this is pretty much the worst test results he's ever had. Gary asked him what would be worse, and he answered being in a tent outside!
The furnace is set over a huge opening over the crawlspace and recirculates cold air from under the house; this explains why the furnace is on all the time and why it feels ice cold inside. It also appears that the air ducts for the heating system are not operational…
