Jon Haehnel replied to Luis Hernandez's discussion Calculating BTU lost per cfm leaks
"Bob, Where does the value 1.08 come from?  I am more familiar with the  "0.018 BTUs per cubic foot to raise its temperature 1° F" that Bud cited.  Using a hypothetical 125 CFM nat. with a delta T of 50…"

Jon Haehnel commented on Macie Melendez's blog post The Future of Home Performance is Wrapped in Cheese—Q&A with Dave Robinson

Jon Haehnel added a discussion to the group Energy Auditing Equipment for Sale, Trade or to Purchase

Minneapolis Blower Door for sale

Minneapolis Blower Door system in excellent condition, well maintained, and used only a few times. It includes a BD-3 series fan, a DG700 meter with Cruise Micromanometer, an adjustable frame with a single hole shroud.   Includes all the necessary cords and hoses. I'd rather sell it to someone in New England so we can avoid shipping but I'm flexible if you're interested. $2200. Call 802-522-9713.   See More

Jon Haehnel replied to Thomas Price's discussion Multi Family Auditing

Jon Haehnel replied to Thomas Price's discussion Multi Family Auditing
"Phil, You assume too much.  You assume that I work for a program that funds my audits, I don't.  Most of my audits are paid for by the owner, the full amount.  I don't guarantee savings.  Do you? …"

Jon Haehnel replied to Thomas Price's discussion Multi Family Auditing
"Thomas Price, I’d like to pick up your doctor analogy; I think there is much in common between us and doctors (except pay).  I don’t believe that doctors typically prescribe more tests just to make more money. They know that every…"
