I have had a debate over the years with other contractors and architects about the cold-cabinet-on-the-outside-wall phenomenon. It is my posistion that if the cabinets were adequately vented to the conditioed space they wouldn't be cold. They are cold, becasue, in essense, the interface between conditioned and non-conditioned space has been moved to the face of the cabinet, greatly reducing the relavance and effectiveness of the wall insulation. If this is not the case then what is happening? Why does so much cold air come out of the cabinets when the exterior wall next to the cabinet is warm?
