Sean Lintow Sr replied to Luis Hernandez's discussion ERV Configuration
"So why go balanced instead of exhaust only? Well you might want to review the piece I linked to at the start & then also the one by William Nickerson above. One big thing to remember is location - you don't want to be pulling hot humid air…"

Sean Lintow Sr replied to Luis Hernandez's discussion ERV Configuration
"Just a few thoughts & I am basing this on dedicated exhausts with an E/HRV (that may or may not be running at the time) also being used. Let me also state that like many things it depends, sure one model might have, or I saw a house…"

Sean Lintow Sr replied to Luis Hernandez's discussion ERV Configuration
"Sorry but I got to disagree - exhaust from a bath (and kitchens) should go out through a dedicated exhaust fan & definitely not an ERV which utilizes a shared core. I still feel the same about an HRV even with separate air streams just…"

Sean Lintow Sr replied to Tom Barrett's discussion Shell Sealing Limits to Existing Homes
"The true answer is - it depends. Certain style homes in certain areas one might say hey we can get X% or down to X ACH pretty reliably, but this model we might only get to Y. As for going, well if we seal XYZ, we will get so much reduction…"

Sean Lintow Sr replied to Larry Nissman's discussion Foam insulation on attic floor
"Long time no hear Bud & good points As for codes - yes it requires a barrier unless the foam meets certain requirements which isn't that big of an issue doing the attic floor as the drywall underneath counts & then you apply blown in…"

Sean Lintow Sr replied to Larry Nissman's discussion Foam insulation on attic floor
"The insulation job is quite simply a freaking eyesore & mess - with that it shouldn't be the issue where they are smelling mildew, getting bugs in, etc... (assuming you are talking about inside the house) - put your sleuthing hat on, find…"

Sean Lintow Sr replied to Melissa Baldridge's discussion IECC 2012 & 2015 Compliance & HRVs
"commercial is 67% efficiency & 2.8 cfm per watt for residential as I recall on 2015 which looking at your numbers you are toast on both - with that are you sure about that wattage? Is this integrated into the HVAC, if so there is an exemption…"

Sean Lintow Sr replied to Luis Hernandez's discussion ERV Configuration
"Check with the manufacturer - You probably should have at least 5' of space in between as a rough rule of thumb"

Sean Lintow Sr replied to Luis Hernandez's discussion ERV Configuration
"Simple is best - pull from one area & deliver to another. I prefer supply by sleeping area & pulling from living area but that is with things open. Now it gets down to what is available, etc... For example you may have a closet where it goes…"

Sean Lintow Sr replied to Bob Blanchette's discussion Real World Ceiling Fan CFM
"Interesting question - the only item I know of is the minimum 8" for proper air flow (or 25% reduction - no source on this being tested but seems to be industry thought) --- some say it should only be 8' off the ground at max while others…"

Sean Lintow Sr replied to Dan Antonioli's discussion Net Zero Energy Hot Water

Sean Lintow Sr replied to Tim Kendzia's discussion Cooling effect from solar panels
"Yes it can provide shade & you have a nice ventilation chamber under it - with that depending on the panels you can have a lot of heat radiating through... As for how much & will it offset I don't think there is a study out there on…"

Posted on November 19, 2014 at 7:48am 0 Comments

As many know, by the end of this year all HERS Raters & Field Inspectors (RFI’s) in good standing must complete a three prong CAZ training & testing requirement (assuming it was not part of their original training). While one can debate should they or shouldn’t they have done this, the die has been cast and the mandate has been made.

Posted on January 8, 2012 at 10:00am 0 Comments

So you have decided you want to earn or become a LEED AP.

(AKA a letter of attestation) As some well know, finding or being able to gain the needed project experience can be a rare opportunity. Fortunately though, the chances for many looking in have an opportunity through a…
