How do remove and replace this basin?

ok. Removed one. Oscillating tool did not work - glue was too deep inside. Ended up breaking the basin with a hammer - this is what I will do in…

thank you. Will give it a go tomorrow. Maybe should start on a smaller bathroom - if I stuff it up, less expensive to replace

ERV in every room would be nice.
I don't have ducted A.C. yet, so anything I will add is expensive.

Ventilation in bedrooms with dual glazed windows

I have started this discussion so that other people retrofitting double glazing into their homes are aware of ventilation requirements. Summer - yes, you can open a window, unless it's…

Are they required to measure it? They can always say (in my house) that I retrofitted my windows etc after they did the install

Then what's the point of dual glazing if reverse cycle ACs can chill/heat the air? Topic is about ventilation and your regular split system does nothing for that

With an extra add on. But that air will be just air from the outside, no heat recovery is done. Standard ducted systems in Australia do not normally install it,…

evap cooling is not very good for dual glazing. You would need to keep your windows open anyway (so I was told).
Given this info, looks like you are building on…

No, I have not. It all depends on the budget. If your new home is 6* or up, HVAC makes a lot of sense. It is just to expensive for…

I agree, but can not agree with the prices we are charged here. A fan and a heat exchanger in a box cannot/should not cost the same or more than…

Yeah, I looked at them and... too expensive. My house is not built to the passive house standards, so using HRV will be an overkill. Ducted AC with HRV inflow…

Do not understand - if you have nothing to add of value, why bother responding at all? If you do, can you please explain what you meant?

That study just proves that CO2 can rise to over 3000ppm in a room with 2 occupants over night and references 1000ppm as a standard.
