"Just a couple of quick thoughts I love Hot Roof systems, but vented also works fine - the catch is the install on both has to be done right especially as you get farther & farther north (or into colder areas). For a simple ranch house vented is…"

Bob Blanchette replied to Sean Lintow Sr's discussion Water Saver or Gimmick? in the group Best Practices (Residential)

"Grey water can really be a problem if it sits too long in the pipes or the back of a toilet.  That soap or extra stuff that makes it grey water really needs to be filtered out and processed before re-use.  Bacteria such as legionella is…"

"Any way to save water, especially HOT water, is worth checking out. I would personally be an advocate for more on demand/point usage hot water systems. Or just recycling grey water. In Iowa you are not allowed to collect grey water. If you travel…"

Sean Lintow Sr replied to Luis Hernandez's discussion ERV Configuration
"So why go balanced instead of exhaust only? Well you might want to review the piece I linked to at the start & then also the one by William Nickerson above. One big thing to remember is location - you don't want to be pulling hot humid air…"

Sean Lintow Sr replied to Luis Hernandez's discussion ERV Configuration
"Just a few thoughts & I am basing this on dedicated exhausts with an E/HRV (that may or may not be running at the time) also being used. Let me also state that like many things it depends, sure one model might have, or I saw a house…"

Sean Lintow Sr replied to Luis Hernandez's discussion ERV Configuration
"Sorry but I got to disagree - exhaust from a bath (and kitchens) should go out through a dedicated exhaust fan & definitely not an ERV which utilizes a shared core. I still feel the same about an HRV even with separate air streams just…"

Sean Lintow Sr replied to Tom Barrett's discussion Shell Sealing Limits to Existing Homes

So you want / need to pass RESNET’s CAZ Tests?

Posted on November 19, 2014 at 7:48am 0 Comments

As many know, by the end of this year all HERS Raters & Field Inspectors (RFI’s) in good standing must complete a three prong CAZ training & testing requirement (assuming it was not part of their original training). While one can debate should they or shouldn’t they have done this, the die has been cast and the mandate has been made.

Posted on January 8, 2012 at 10:00am 0 Comments

So you have decided you want to earn or become a LEED AP. There is just one small issue, unless you have or are working on a LEED project, just how are you supposed to gain the experience & show documented involvement on a project registered or certified for LEED? (AKA a letter of attestation) As some well know, finding or being able to gain the needed project experience can be a rare opportunity. Fortunately though, the chances for many looking in have an opportunity through a…
