How much membrane and tape do I need?
INTELLO PLUS, SOLITEX MENTO, and most of our membranes are sold in 800 square foot rolls. For each roll of membrane, you’ll need an average of 2-3 rolls of the corresponding airsealing tape. There are a few exceptions which are noted on the product pages, and we’re always happy to help you size an order. The correct tape to use is nearly always TESCON VANA, also known as 'VANA' for short. VANA comes in a variety of widths. For simple airsealing of membrane the standard 2 3/8" width is the one to use. The only time to consider something other than 2 3/8" TESCON VANA is for window rough opens or building corners (wider varieties of TESCON VANA will be more useful), when using SOLITEX FRONTA QUATTRO in an open joint rainscreen application (use TESCON INVIS), or when the membrane is already integrated with adhesive strips (such as SOLITEX UM Connect or ADHERO).
Can I get Lunos in Canada?
No. We are sorry, but 475 is exclusive distributors for Lunos only in the USA. We cannot sell or distribute any Lunos products to Canadian customers.
I am building a tiny house. Is Lunos the right system for me?
Yes. Lunos is a popular solution for small homes and tiny houses, as it lets you have a balanced supply of fresh air without any ductwork typically associated with a ventilation system. This means you get whole house ventilation just through 2 holes in your wall. You can see a video showing how the Lunos system works here. You can email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with a building plan to get specific sizing and spacing suggestions.
How many fans can I connect to a Lunos controller?
You can connect groups of 2 or 4 Lunos e2 fans to one controller. You can see a video showing installation here. A guide to installing and operating the Lunos system can be found on the product page.
Do I need to buy a controller/transformer/anything else with my Lunos?
A Lunos e2 box, in addition to the fan unit, comes with a transformer and a universal controller. You will need to get rocker switches, switch plate, electrical box and low voltage wire.
How long is the Lunos system? Will it work with my wall thickness?
The minimum wall thickness for the Lunos e2 standard version is 12” or 300 mm and for the Lunos e2 short version is 7.5”. The tube you will receive with your order is 20” long and you can cut it to the size you require. If the wall thickness is less than minimum tube length, you can keep the extra length to the inside of the building envelope and box out your wall inward.
Can I install the Lunos through my roof?
No, you cannot install fans in your roof/ceiling. Lunos units can only be installed through the wall assembly horizontally.
How many Lunos do I need?
Lunos e2 operates in pairs, each pair providing up to 22 CFM ventilation. Check out this page to see how you can size your own Lunos system. If you want, we are happy to take a look and support.

What do you have against foam?
At 475 High Performance Building Supply, we believe that when it comes to foam, less is best. Foam, derived from petrochemicals, can release toxic gases throughout its lifetime, is inflexible and experiences shrinkage and cracking that can dramatically compromise building performance, and presents a significant fire hazard. These and other foam-related problems are covered in our “Foam Fails” blog series.
Building a foam-free, high-performance home is possible - so we believe in making the choice that’s healthier for occupants, better for the planet, and more likely to guarantee long-lasting high-performance buildings.
How should I go about designing my foam-free roof assembly?
The best way to design your foam-free roof assembly depends upon the type of roof and building you’re designing, your climate zone, and your building preferences. While we advocate for vented roofs, we understand that not every project will have one. The blog posts below cover a range of roof assemblies, from flat to vaulted, vented to unvented - and how to ensure long-term performance no matter which path you choose.

What's the best way to airseal my windows?
Ensuring an airtight connection between your high-performance windows and the rest of your air barrier can be one of the biggest airsealing challenges, but doing so properly is indispensable for robust, long-term airtightness. Selecting the right tapes, pre-making window tape corners, and identifying how and where to tape the frame, air barrier, and window bucks will all help you meet these goals. Check out the posts below for our guide to the best window airsealing practices.
