Alice La Pierre replied to Kaushal Bharath Raju's discussion Affordability & Deep Energy Upgrade/Passive House Retrofit in Berkeley, California.
"If it meets the code, you are fine.  All they do is follow the code.  For my project, there was nothing in the code that said I couldn't build a second wall over the first, as long as I had support for the new windows, and that the…"

Alice La Pierre replied to Kaushal Bharath Raju's discussion Affordability & Deep Energy Upgrade/Passive House Retrofit in Berkeley, California.
"Hello Kaushal, With regareds to George Nesbitt's comments on my house (he is an EXCELLENT resource, BTW!), yes, the western wall was only "doubled" up to the chimney, and a window next to the chimney that sits on the corner of the…"

Alice La Pierre replied to Scott Willenbrock's discussion clothes dryer: vented or ventless? in the group 1000 Home Challenge
"Hello Scott!   The electric ventless dryer will, indeed, keep the heat in the house, but it will also keep the moisture from the wet clothing, bedding, etc, in the house.  You may be setting yourself up for a future mold problem, depending…"

Alice La Pierre replied to James White's discussion Transient Heat Transfer Analysis in the group Building Simulations
"This is a nice graphic.  I have a question on how you captured the data -- did you set temperature probes at increasing depths into the brick wall, or are these extrapolated from the delta between interior and exterior temperatures?  Thank…"

Alice La Pierre commented on Jennifer Luitwieler's group ACI NATIONAL ATTENDEES
"I wasn't there, but it sounds like they have a problem with the cooling tower(s), which may need some attention.  Everyone who got sick shoudl definitely document it and let Hilton management know about it.  This is serious, and could…"

Alice La Pierre replied to David Eggleton's discussion "Meaningful Makeovers" Debut in the group 1000 Home Challenge
"Sounds like a wonderful event -- sorry I can't be there!  I'm finally embarking on my own home energy retrofit that is pretty non-conforming -- installing exterior insulaton.  Perhaps this will be a presentation for next year!"

Alice La Pierre replied to Gary Baggett's discussion Expressed concerns over the scope of work that the vendors are performing with employees in the HES program, work relating to the combustion testing of fossil fuel heating appliances.
"I'd have to agree that there seems to be a wide variety of, shall we say, styles of CAZ testing out there among the HP Contractors.  I've been monitoring an energy program for work, and I'm amazed at the differences in approach…"

Alice La Pierre replied to Ed Voytovich's discussion Ah the complexity in the group 1000 Home Challenge
"Leaving the math aside, it would seem to me that one would only want to generate the heat in quantities that are usable, since you really can't store heat energy without substantial remodeling for thermal mass storage, such as heating water for…"
