Bob Mariani replied to randy tolowski's discussion New Certifications from BPI in the group Building Performance Institute (BPI)
"That was my point. They want us to maintain credits and pay fees but do absolutely nothing about the third party inspections they talk about.   We need standards... this is good thing.  But the general public needs to understand the…"

Bob Mariani replied to randy tolowski's discussion New Certifications from BPI in the group Building Performance Institute (BPI)
"The expense is something that I agree with.  BPI keeps adding certifications that seem meaningless at best.  Rarely does I client care.  And paying certification as a company is nothing more than an added expense.  I managed…"

Bob Mariani replied to Bud Poll's discussion The science of hot air rising

Bob Mariani replied to Bud Poll's discussion The science of hot air rising
"According to statistical mechanics, where air has greater kinetic energy it has a greater probability to occupy a higher gravitational potential than less energenic air. That is, the system tends toward maximal entropy."

Bob Mariani commented on Ed Voytovich's blog post Ridge Vent . . . and Nothing But the Ridge
"Still more natural air flow should persist.  I believe the soffit venting is insufficient.  The air movement should be equal between the ridge and the soffit vents."

Bob Mariani commented on Ed Voytovich's blog post Ridge Vent . . . and Nothing But the Ridge
"Ed, is that mold on the discolored section of the sheathing?  The vent opening should have been larger.  Only a small air flow is occurring.  Also be sure no gable vents are still opened that will short circuit the soffit to ridge…"
