Rich Manning replied to Tim Kendzia's discussion Cooling effect from solar panels
"I don't think anyone can dispute the fact that the roof would be cooler, although putting a number on it would be difficult. As far as using it to lower the cooling load and therefore the KWH, in my opinion would be risky and unwarranted.…"

Rich Manning replied to Shaun 's discussion Commercial duct testing
"The IECC code states that the area between a drop ceiling and roof is considered as unconditioned. I don't know why it would be unfeasible to test the ducts, and I'm not sure of the parameters of why they would be tested. Is someone saying…"

Rich Manning replied to Jack Baikoff's discussion Vermiculite in the fireplace

Rich Manning commented on Anthony Adams's blog post Bonus room attic walls heat load
"If the attic is vented to treat it as an exterior wall, if not vented then its adjacent to an unconditioned space. Just determine the sf and U-valve. As far as infiltration, if you can't do a blower door that's fine, if not try to…"

Rich Manning replied to Charles Ryan Weitzel's discussion Oil Fired Boiler Being Used as the Heating Source in Two Air Handlers of a Historic Home
