"Hmmm.. So thermography in conjunction with data can tell you stuff and information which is useful for comparing other data and stuff that is green. oh yeah, and impressive pictures, useful tools, pretty colors, data, and stuff."

Scott Wood replied to Joshua Knittel's discussion Google Thermal View? in the group INFRARED THERMOGRAPHY USERS
"The intent of evaluating a building for an energy rating is to include many data points, one of them being thermography. Thermography is a measurement tool with most thermal imagers calibrated to provide an accurate thermal measurement (+-2C or 2%).…"

tedkidd replied to Joshua Knittel's discussion Google Thermal View? in the group INFRARED THERMOGRAPHY USERS
"What does it even tell you?  Thermal is diagnostic, not measurement.   I get really tired of seeing this "save energy" stuff with no measurement behind it.  Save HOW MUCH?  LOTS?  Put LOTS on a deposit slip and…"

Robert Riversong replied to Joshua Knittel's discussion Correct way to install foil faced insulation blanket in attic in the group Best Practices (Residential)
"Ditto. If that foil sandwich is a supplement to existing minimal fiberglass batts, then it will have some enhancement effect, by reducing convection in the fiberglass and by creating a modest (though dusty) radiant barrier, which will help reduce…"

Joshua Knittel replied to Bud Poll's discussion Using The Sciences To Our Advantage
"Hi Bud! Thanks for starting this discussion, it is much needed (for me anyways). My last response to a post on Hals thread was made with the knowledge I've gained on how radiant barriers work and the physics associated with them - especially…"
Aug 28, 2012
Joshua Knittel replied to Hal Skinner's discussion Different classifications of radiant barrier materials
"First off, a reputable radiant barrier dealer / installer should never claim that a radiant barrier will address anything but "radiant heat gain". It is asinine to assume that it would or should have any affect on conduction or…"

John Redmond replied to Joshua Knittel's discussion Marketing | Packages
"The independent auditing business model does not have much staying power, plus there is not enough profit dollars in it to sustain yourself long term. Besides, using this model, I would argue, unless one expands into additional offerings (radon…"
