    Basement Framing for HVAC

    GOTCHA! :) Felt will break down over time allowing wicking and sill gasket provides a moisture barrier (I guess it does as it is also used on sill plates) in addition to a thermal barrier. I was overbuilding... :( But, isn't felt called for by code under a floor plate (on crete)?

    Basement Framing for HVAC

    OK, but the sill gasket will stop heat transfer to the slab but the tar paper will stop the moisture wicking from the slab into the framing, right (I actually used both)?

    Adding a Whole House Humidifier

    Well, HONEYWELL is the #1 and manufacturers for other sellers also (APRILAIRE and TRANE for two). It only uses a free-standing humidistat and you don't have to wire into the thermostat. Call TECH to verify instruction sheet. If you are comfortable doing the install, I don't know why you would...
