The Discreet Charm of Attics and Crawl Spaces

You would be professionally remiss if you did not read “Attics and Crawl Spaces” in this issue. The article by Terry Nordbye is a valuable reminder that home performance problems too often begin in the places that we least want to work on or inspect. Mold, dry rot, and despicable smells emanating from these…See More

"Matt, Another way of looking at this is that by freeing up my time/brain power, I can give more time/attention to important things - like being a better, more present daddy to my kids. Here's a gadget suggestion for you: Hue by Phillips. Holy…"

"Technolgy is almost always cool BUT (and its a big BUT) money spent on bells and whistles is money you didn't spend on better tightening and insulating the house, which is where serious energy savings come about. #2 when that technology breaks…"

"I need to correct my comment below... its no longer editable.. the test standard is for 57.5% not 53.5%... it is still much lower than real life."

Hans Joachim Preiss commented on Home Energy Magazine's blog post VW Isn't the Only One That Circumvents
"I appreciate the collection, Alan, but as one of the not-so-clean diesel owners it doesn't make me feel better. Mine even sports 'advancing clean energy' license plates. Most embarrassing indeed."

Colin Genge commented on Home Energy Magazine's blog post VW Isn't the Only One That Circumvents
"The most flagrant circumvention is surely the fact that less than 10% of all duct systems meet code.  I would like to hear from others regarding the duct testing figures they get on new houses. Some anecdotal evidence shows that 250 CFM at 25…"

The Future of Sustainable Business is Transparent

Posted on December 8, 2015 at 7:42am 1 Comment

The idea of business transparency might seem antithetical to success and may frighten some companies. But collaborative efforts across businesses and sectors have shown that the triple-bottom-line benefits of transparency far outweigh the perceived risks. In fact, as more consumers demand proof that the products they buy fulfill the promise of the label, transparency is becoming a key differentiator that sets…

My Fall Into The Smart Home, Lazy Life

Posted on November 18, 2015 at 8:51am 2 Comments

Last year I moved into a house that needed some work. So far I’ve replaced the foundation, installed seismic upgrades, added central heat, repainted, and much more. (Anybody know a good fireplace guy?)
