Alice La Pierre replied to Scott Willenbrock's discussion clothes dryer: vented or ventless? in the group 1000 Home Challenge
"Hello Scott!   The electric ventless dryer will, indeed, keep the heat in the house, but it will also keep the moisture from the wet clothing, bedding, etc, in the house.  You may be setting yourself up for a future mold problem, depending…"

Alice La Pierre replied to James White's discussion Transient Heat Transfer Analysis in the group Building Simulations
"This is a nice graphic.  I have a question on how you captured the data -- did you set temperature probes at increasing depths into the brick wall, or are these extrapolated from the delta between interior and exterior temperatures?  Thank…"

Alice La Pierre replied to Gary Baggett's discussion Expressed concerns over the scope of work that the vendors are performing with employees in the HES program, work relating to the combustion testing of fossil fuel heating appliances.
"I'd have to agree that there seems to be a wide variety of, shall we say, styles of CAZ testing out there among the HP Contractors.  I've been monitoring an energy program for work, and I'm amazed at the differences in approach…"

Alice La Pierre replied to Ed Voytovich's discussion Ah the complexity in the group 1000 Home Challenge
"Leaving the math aside, it would seem to me that one would only want to generate the heat in quantities that are usable, since you really can't store heat energy without substantial remodeling for thermal mass storage, such as heating water for…"
