I worked in the shipbuilding industry and air conditioning on ships required careful heating and cooling loads calculated for each and every compartment on a ship. Everything had to balance out to be considered to spec. It gets pretty hot out on the ocean with the sun beating down on a steel ship. Insulation, heating and A/C is of prime importance in a ship. If A/C contractors would apply the standards used onboard ships to home installation, our homes would be much more comfortable and economical to operate; yet people skimp on one of the most important parts of home construction. A house is rarely “air tight”. There will always be cracks where air can infiltrate. On a ship, there are NO cracks or unwanted openings. A ship is a completely closed system, where the amount of air in equals the amount of air out; in other words, perfect balance. Sorry for the overlong explanation. I speak from experience.
