isolate everything in a "boiler room" of the basement

for fire protection

for dirt protection

and bring in outside air - enough outside air so the manometer registers correctly!

Hello all,
Outdoor air supplies.
I found a lot of good info from this web site. It does focus on wood burning but I found it very helpful. John Gulland (one of the founders of the site) whose 25 years of industry experience have made him a renown expert in the area of house pressure and it’s relation to draft gives good advise. If you go to the site you can click on "outdoor air supplies" and read about it. The "all about chimneys" is good also.
