If I don’t cool my home on summer, should I think like I’m in a cold climate when I design my wall assembly?
In regards to vapor difussion, in a mixed-humid climate, where no AC will be used in summer, should a Cold Climate wall assembly design work just fine?
In other words, does the special concerns we have to consider when designing a mixed-humid wall assembly, have to do with being able to work succesfully and withstand both heating and cooling seasons? What if I don’t have a cooling season (No AC in my home), should I just use a cold-climate approach?
This is for Pucon, Chile, which has a climate like US’s 4-C, or Marine.
