ken Neuhauser replied to Griffin Hagle's discussion Best practice recommendations for this vaulted ceiling?
"Griffin, That's a gorgeous attic! To my eye, the bungalow is a beautify style that can accommodate high performance discretely.  The only aspect of this building that looks less solid (visually) and a little inconsistent is the roof…"

"Hello, Brennan! I am also very interested in what you find from aggregating DER performance across the U.S.  Performance data is going to be key to the general public's evaluation of this level of retrofit.  It is exciting to see such…"

"Hello, Patrick, There are a few important considerations that I think people often miss when deciding between or comparing establishing the thermal enclosure at the attic floor or in the plane of the roof.   First, to really do the same…"

ken Neuhauser replied to Kevin's discussion Underground ductwork
"Moldy cheerios, mice poop, marbles and matchbox cars.  M-m-m-m!  Plus lots of cat hair if the house has cats.  I'm not a fan of floor registers even if they are not associated with below-slab ducts."

ken Neuhauser replied to Kevin's discussion Underground ductwork
"Kevin, I agree, he would be wasting his money to seal the sub-slab ductwork. There is only one appropriate retrofit measure for ducts below a slab: fill with concrete and relocate ductwork within the building. I've put a camera in a sub-slab…"

ken Neuhauser commented on Chris Laumer-Giddens's blog post What do Ducted Mini-Splits Look Like?
"Thank you for this post, Chris! Of course we all want the efficiency of mini-splits in a ducted system.  The trouble seems to be, however, that once we put ducts on these systems, they no longer have a performance advantage over…"

"Hello Nick, Joe Lstiburek has a nice article on wine cellars.  It is also available on the buildingscience.com website.   You might have already come across this in your research:…"

ken Neuhauser replied to Brad Cook's discussion Venting a clothes dryer through an unheated garage
"Brad, If you've insulated the pipe, sloped to the outside, properly lapped the joints, left a drain hole or two at the bottom of the vent termination...then I think you're just up against physics.  Physics wins every time.  The…"

ken Neuhauser commented on Glen Gallo's blog post Building Science is not really science
"Appreciate the thoughts, Glen.  But I think you need to be careful about the terminology.  Building science is science.  It's the application of building science that tends to be less scientific.  The discipline of building…"
