Cord wood moisture storage
I do weatherization & occasionally run across people who store a cord or more of hardwood in their basements. They usually say that the wood is dry before they bring it in. I am dubious, and believe that this still adds significant moisture load to the house. In winter here, in southern Vermont, it is pretty dry inside, so anything with moisture content is going to release it into the house.
Are there any estimates available about how much moisture a cord of wood in various conditions would bring into a house?
I haven't been able to find anything on gba or on energy vanguard that talks about this. Web searches also fail me.
