Right Dan; I was just using .4 ACH for his situation because his home needs to be above the code minimum home air-changes of 0.35 ACH, when it is properly ventilated.
Of course, the proper way is to do the blower door test & use the actual lower ACH number so the load-calc would estimate the needed makeup air...then he should use 0.2 or less ACH.
