Sean Lintow Sr replied to Dan Antonioli's discussion Net Zero Energy Hot Water
"Really it all comes down to usage - recovery periods generally use the elements especially if there is any demand. If to hot or cold in the area the unit is, you may also not be using the heat pump. Put pen to paper, you may find a more insulated…"

"Yes it can provide shade & you have a nice ventilation chamber under it - with that depending on the panels you can have a lot of heat radiating through... As for how much & will it offset I don't think there is a study out there on…"

Radon - Passive Systems

Just curious - many locals (per codes) require passive radon systems be installed in new construction and even in certain remodels. There are plenty of "this isn't needed" thoughts out there like this one found here on HEP - Radon Truth vs MythSo do you think radon is just a scare or passive systems are a good…See More

Sean Lintow Sr replied to Rodney Fox's discussion Radon: Truth vs. Myth
"You may wish to reread - it reduces "concentrations" not radon entering which can still actually increase. As mentioned, one needs to test to be sure. A lot also has to do with where you measure at. Another issue is the ground where you…"

Sean Lintow Sr replied to Rodney Fox's discussion Radon: Truth vs. Myth

Sean Lintow Sr replied to Rodney Fox's discussion Radon: Truth vs. Myth
"Let me just state "use your head" does not mean you are not, you are questioning which is good. The catch is sorting through & using the best info possible As for mitigation doing harm - not even close as it should only be causing…"

Sean Lintow Sr replied to Rodney Fox's discussion Radon: Truth vs. Myth

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.
