Use the AC much?
Its not none of the three. It is some sort of MDF or fiberous sheeting that is 1/4 thick. The there is about a 1/4 to a 1/2 air gap between the brick.
So from the outside to the inside it goes: brick, air gap, 1/4" board then the stud bay. there is no type of house wrap or air barrier.
The air gap goes up to the soffits down to the breather holes before the block foundation.
we do use the AC. we keep it set on 72-73. outside temp at worst gets to 95-100 with high humidity. in the winter we keep it around 68 if that matters.
If you have any reason that i shouldnt do this let me know. I already put the Dow XPS foam board up and i plan on spray foaming with closed cell next weekend.
