Stan Kuhn replied to Jim Gunshinan's discussion When your shower is in your kitchen...
"I think this is in the wrong Forum, it belongs in Hall of Shame.  One the dumbest ones I've seen, and I've seen a bunch.  Assuming the range exhaust is 100 cfm or better (right!), it may not present a huge moisture issue if the…"

Stan Kuhn replied to Bud Poll's discussion CO poisoning in Yarmouth Maine
"Those of us who know the story about CO detectors need to work to get low-level ones required, or have the UL listing require one that really protects human life.  The home store things will hopefully prevent death, depending upon the person,…"

Stan Kuhn replied to Sean Lintow Sr's discussion Water Saver or Gimmick? in the group Best Practices (Residential)
"The story I got was that it's for those folks who turn the shower on, then shave, brush teeth (or do other things) while waiting for the water to get hot.  I guess some homes have a really long wait time(!)  I was taught early on to…"

Stan Kuhn replied to Kari Sauder's discussion Needed: High Efficiency NG HVAC for a 2,100 sf single story building in the group HVAC
"Keri, my thoughts are that you do NOT want a wall heater at each end, unless uneven heating isn't a concern.  What about cooling?  Is it needed/wanted?  If you go with a high efficiency furnace it will be direct vent.  I…"

Stan Kuhn replied to Mike Kandel's discussion BPI Launches Home Rating Program Using DOE's Home Energy Score
"If there is a comprehensive energy audit, the HES will very likely be proven as just a guess based upon the averages.  And I seriously doubt it will be marketed for what it is.  But the taxpayers have already paid out millions and there…"

Stan Kuhn replied to Matthew Damon's discussion Upgrading a vented tongue and groove cathedral ceiling in the group Best Practices (Residential)
"The topic has been discussed ad infinitum at the linkedin group Bud shared.  I see this a lot; "High end home, but low budget."  Ironic to me.  If they want it fixed they need to pay the freight.  Do it right, or…"

Stan Kuhn replied to James Murray's discussion Water Water Everywhere
"I can't understand the situation very well, but you noted "propane wall units and fireplace".  I will bet that they are all unvented; burning propane produces a GREAT amount of water vapor into the living space, as well as…"

"Ted, stop "beating around the bush" and tell him like it is :))"

Stan Kuhn replied to Kari Sauder's discussion raised ranch heating, can't balance it in the group HVAC
"My experience with the ESV3 credentialed contractors is that they only go through the process (kicking and screaming) when they're required to.  So you need to ask for their experience level, and choose one with good experience.  As…"

Stan Kuhn replied to Kari Sauder's discussion raised ranch heating, can't balance it in the group HVAC
"Kari, unless you have mechanical ventilation your home is tight enough.  7 ACH@50 equates to about the .35 ACH natural rate.  If you do have it then make it as tight as possible."
Nov 8, 2013
Stan Kuhn replied to Kari Sauder's discussion raised ranch heating, can't balance it in the group HVAC
"Kari,  You didn't note that you did a duct leakage test.  If not, I would suggest that first (total and leakage to outside), then airflow at each supply & return to be sure the air is getting to/from where it should.  If you…"

Lumpy Spray Foam Insulation in an Attic

"That looks better than 99% of the foam I've seen.  I did see ONE flash coat on walls that looked good.  The worst (so far) was a two-section, connected, roof where one section was foamed on the deck underside (much more lumpy…"

Stan Kuhn replied to John Kuiper's discussion HERS rating & heat losing features in the group Home Energy Ratings
"I don't have any good advice, but my opinion is that the owners of homes with obvious energy waste "just because I want it" need to include the usage in the rating, and compensate otherwise if they want a reasonable rating. …"
