I can only find similar results in the 2009 IRC, ask your local Building Department. I have never used steel studs. If you use them with the new p.t. wood for the bottom plate on concrete, you could have problems; http://www.steel.org/AM/Template.cfm...entDisplay.cfm
Isolate the steel bottom track from the concrete for a thermal break so the cavity moisture doesn’t condense on the cooler steel there. Use foam board, air tight against the concrete wall first, as fiberglass insulation alone won’t be enough. You may get “ghosting” of the studs if they are touching the colder concrete. Use a denser fiberglass for your cavity fill which will stop the natural convective loops. With steel studs, expect a reduction of the insulation due to convective loops from the stud design itself.
Air seal and foam board the rims; http://www.rd.com/57548/article57548.html
No air gap at f.b./batt insulation. Anchor them well at the bottom and top. Do you realize the direction of drywall application on steel studs?
Clothes taking longer to dry?
Clean the dryer screen in HOT water if using fabric softener sheets.
They leave a residue that impedes air-flow, costing you money.
Clean the ducting in the last six months? 17,000 dryer fires annually!
