  • I am thinking about doing a metal roof on my house without ventilation, like Matt is talking about on this video. How do you get rid of the hot humid air that is brought up by the house and hvac? I live in a high humidity area.

  • Hi Angela, I have some mould in an old stone rubble built cottage. It is all lime rendered and plastered but still have one area of mould under a window. Thinking of putting a radiator there. Would you advise that?

  • I don’t disagree with the single thing in this video. I would like to add that this is great if you have the finances and use conditioned air. One thing to remember mold is only a problem if it’s a problem for you. If you don’t have allergic like symptoms then mold probably isn’t an issue for you. Personally I’m not a fan of air conditioning, I don’t have it in my house. I keep my doors & windows open. I have fans on, circulating air through the house. A little mold in my basement, nothing a cup of bleach in a gallon of water, on occasion, doesn’t fix. Basement are below grade they should never be finished. A basement is just a giant access panel to the house.
