Ira Eisenstein replied to King Rosales's discussion Where did you buy your LED lights?
"Rebates are nice to get, and they make it easier to do fix-ups and upgrades. What everyone forgets about rebates is that the $$ for them does not fall from the sky like rain. The taxpayers of the state or province pay for them, so when I get a…"

Ira Eisenstein replied to King Rosales's discussion Where did you buy your LED lights?
"King (and others re:color of light) For what it's worth, the same question and answer applies to LED flashlights.. I have 2 LED flashlights, and one produces noticeably yellow light while the other is a neutral white."

Ira Eisenstein replied to HB's discussion A new home energy calculator, please share your thoughts
"It seems like a lot of work to accurately describe the house, but I guess you get accurate answers for your efforts. At least I hope you do.   There's nothing (that was mentioned) about describing the insulation in the walls, floors,…"

Ira Eisenstein replied to Curt Kinder's discussion Vampire load surprise - garage door openers
"Here is a non-"kosher" thought….. It has been mentioned in a limited context, but if it is done on a larger scale, it solves the problem. If your circumstances allow (shading, roof condition and space, $$ to do it), get solar PV,…"

Ira Eisenstein replied to Noah Glatfelter's discussion How Do You Market Your Energy Auditing Co?

Ira Eisenstein replied to Joshua Knittel's discussion Marketing | Packages
"What nobody has mentioned so far (maybe because it is slightly off-subject regarding the initial question) is that all of the publicity you hear about energy audits is how the government gives them to you for free with this program or that program,…"

Ira Eisenstein replied to randy tolowski's discussion New Certifications from BPI in the group Building Performance Institute (BPI)
"Randy... Debra Monte is right... If BPI wants to create an Energy Auditor certification, that's fine, but those of us who are BA/EP certified and have been doing energy audits (I have been doing them since 2007) should be grandfathered into the…"

Ira Eisenstein commented on Chris Kaiser's blog post Why the incandescent deserves its death
"Chris... I am an energy auditor, so I recommend CFL's and LED's to my home energy audit clients. I was "with you" up until the last paragraph. You say your views are close to libertarian, but then you take the hard-left-liberal…"

Ira Eisenstein replied to Bret Monroe's discussion i-Phone and i-Pad users in the group Tools of the Trade
"Bret... I use an IPad to take notes during any event or inspection or audit. It has completely replaced my clipboard with legal pad attached. For energy audits, it has also replaced my calculator and more importantly, I have set up Excel…"

Ira Eisenstein replied to Jon LaMonte's discussion Duct Sealing Spray From the Inside
"You also want to make sure there are no motorized duct dampers (for zoning)... You don't want to "seal" them into one position. Ira Eisenstein"
Feb 23, 2011
Ira Eisenstein replied to Jon LaMonte's discussion Duct Sealing Spray From the Inside
"I would find out what was being sprayed on the inside of the ducts... The air being blown through the house goes through those ducts... The homeowner will get to breathe the sprayed on sealant for quite a while.. You want to make sure it's not…"

Ira Eisenstein commented on Ed Voytovich's blog post Archimedes, Einstein, and Home Energy: Searching for the Eureka Moment
"Well this is certainly a "bum you out" thread. Americans (not to be nationalistic) and many other innovative nations are very good at coming up with really good ideas to solve hitherto unsolvable (or solvable at great pain and expense)…"
