I have a newly built home (3 years) that is extremely well-insulated and airtight house that had a blower door with results near 1 ACH. I am thrilled with it in every way except that on the coldest days and nights my door lock freezes and I can’t get in and out of the house. My contractor says he followed every procedure properly and that there is nothing I can do. Any ideas?
Is it possible to reconcile installing a wood stove in a airtight, super-insulated house?
