I have a new house (self-built) on a concrete slab insulated with R22 rockwool and R3 panel insulation. The windows are double glazed wood and aluminum. I do not have an air exchanger yet, I’m wondering if that is part of the problem. Thank you in advance for your comments!
My door lock keeps freezing to the point I can’t open it, any idea why this would happen?
