Make up air for stove vent to come from crawl space?
New house under construction in Seattle (4C?)suburb that I am building to passive house standards.
I have a fully insulated crawl space with external rigid insulation all the way to the footer. The crawl space will have a push fan constantly on and 8 passive air intakes.
Crawl space has a rat slab with plastic underneath.
There are no combustion appliances in the house. I intend to have my stove vent operating whenever there is ANY cooking going on and am taking many measures to make the system quiet. Given that this will be an induction stove top, I expect to pull approximately 300 – 350 CFM.
Is there any reason why I cant locate the passive makeup air supply pipe to mount under the stove to pull air from the crawl space? It will make a much easier installation and perhaps an advantage of tempered air (50 -55 degrees) as well.
