Make-up air in a tight house

Mike321 | Posted in General Questions on

I’ve read a lot of articles on here including the article about makeup air for kitchen hoods, but I’m still confused.

I have a very tight 1500 sqft house (no tightness numbers yet) with traditional gas HVAC, sealed combustion furnace and water heater.  I also have 4 bathroom fans, a clothes dryer, and a kitchen hood.

What is a straightforward way to provide makeup air in this setup?
