Is John Straube out there?  Or others have insight as well, I'm sure.

I'm trying to learn more about the "necessary" dehumidification a fairly tight 
house in Tennessee would need.  I mostly understand the concept that when 
ventilated with an ERV, the Fall/Spring months will see an increase in interior 
humidity because the ERV is not "dehumidifying"...   or something like that.  
See, I need to learn more about it.

I searched buildingscience.com and found some interesting research results, but 
I need a primer that explains the issue first.

Thanks everyone!
