Dale@EnergyWright replied to Roman's discussion Range Hood Draft

Dale@EnergyWright commented on Lester Shen's blog post A Pattern Language for Residential Energy Efficiency
"Just as Alexander's book points out that the pattern language he presents is just one of many patterns, so it is with defining patterns in houses as systems.  And while apprenticeship is a tried-and-true means to learn these patterns as…"

Dale@EnergyWright replied to Silvie Votrubova's discussion Trick for those who have ever input the wrong range on their gauge - blower door tech
"That's a good solution for correcting the error after leaving the site.  I recommend changing the order of your range correction procedure.  When your gauge calls for the next smaller ring, change the gauge setting first, then install…"

Dale@EnergyWright replied to Patrick Michaelyan's discussion Air Sealing Woes
"Show the HO the total house and CAZ depressurization with all exhaust fans running and just the whole house fan running.  You may be back-drafting the DHW now.  Use the blower door to pressurize the house back up to zero Pascals. …"

Tools of the Trade

A hammer and a saw used to be the key tools for home contractors. Today, the best-in-breed also use high-tech equipment while performing a professional energy audit or verifying that construction has been done correctly.

Dale@EnergyWright commented on Ed Voytovich's blog post Old Saws
"Hi Ed. Interesting perspective, no cold, just less heat.  Now I've got to teach that a blower door doesn't depressurize a house, it makes it less pressurized than the outdoors. Oy.  I could argue that heat sometimes rises because…"

Dale@EnergyWright commented on A. Tamasin Sterner's blog post Attic Fans Can Cause Headaches for Technicians
"Ed, just as stack effect in the winter is caused by heated air rising inside a home and leaking out through leaks in the attic and second floor; reverse or negative stack effect can happen in the summer due to cooled indoor air descending and…"

Dale@EnergyWright commented on A. Tamasin Sterner's blog post Attic Fans Can Cause Headaches for Technicians
"Nicely said, Tamasin.  Yet articles promoting attic fan use are everywhere.  They tout energy savings when the opposite is often true.  You can even buy a solar-powered attic fan at Home Depot so you can feel green as you turn…"
