Home performance articles and stories from the field with internationally respected building forensics guru Corbett Lunsford at the Building Performance Workshop. Hear new episodes of the Building Performance Podcast, see new videos from the Home Performance YouTube channel, and learn all about how diagnostic testing (more than an 'Energy Audit') can make home improvement and new home construction a proven process!
The #TinyLab's plumbing system is highly efficient for water, electricity, and propane use, but it turns out that efficiency reduces the control over water temperature during different seasons. Corbett FINALLY solved the conundrum theoretically- but are the products available in the plumbing department going to perform as advertised?
Arlene Blum is a famous mountain climber AND biophysical chemist, and it turns out they're basically the same job. At the Green Science Policy Institute in Berkeley, CA, she sat down with Corbett and Grace to talk about Six Classes of harmful chemicals, how to recognize when you're being duped by lazy industrial processes and marketing magic, and what to do to protect your kids from fluorinated products, antimicrobials, flame retardants, bisphenols, phthalates, and certain solvents and metals.

Corbett talks with high performance builder star Matt Risinger about what HOMEChem could mean for his business. Shot by Joey Puterbaugh at the University of Texas at Austin Pickle Research Campus. Matt Risinger's channel is: https://www.youtube.com/MattRisinger
Corbett gets Atila Novoselac to share what the Test House is all about at the University of Texas at Austin. Delphine Farmer and Marina Vance show off the trailers surrounding it, and describe the instruments that'll be running 24/7 measuring the indoor chemistry of the Test House's air. https://HomeDiagnosis.tv/homechem
Corbett and Grace report from HOMEChem in Austin during the open house extravaganza.
Grace and Corbett report from the frontier of indoor air quality, HOMEChem (House Observations of Microbial and Environmental Chemistry). This is their crash course in the instruments that were assembled for this experiment, and the experience of having those millions of dollars of chemistry instruments take a long, hard smell of your offgassing.
Grace and Corbett tour the Center for Energy and Environmental Resources with THE TRAVELER of HOMEChem, Lea Hildebrandt-Ruiz. She shows off her atmospheric chemistry laboratory at the University of Texas at Austin, where she's been testing the harmful effects of pollution on tiny pieces of people!
Corbett freaked out about particles from mosquito repellant and spray sunscreen, especially for his 3-month old little girl. Luckily, he has two of the world's top indoor chemistry experts to advise him and Grace.
Welcome to HOMEChem's last Festivity-Associated Kitchen Emissions Study (FAKESgiving) complete with turkey, stuffing, and cranberry sauce cooked like you'd drive a submarine. As House Observations of Microbial and Environmental Chemistry wraps up, we're digging deeper and deeper into how our cooking, cleaning, and hanging out habits affect the air we breathe in homes.
Body Splash or Body Sprays- these teen-loving products carry more than what is listed on the bottle. What is lingering afterwards and what is the chemistry looking like as the school day ends?
Grace and Corbett brain dump on the last day of HOMEChem, as researchers swab the Test House's surfaces for microbe samples.
Meet some of the heroes of HOMEChem (House Observations of Microbial and Environmental Chemistry) and the University of Texas-Austin's Test House! Subscribe and stay tuned for more about this first-ever groundbreaking experiment that will change how all of us see our homes.
In a hilarious and disgusting way, Joe Medosch illustrates what most of us have been breathing at home. Get a free checkup on your home's air quality, with recommendations for improvement at: http://HaywardScore.com
Corbett gets HPC's Nate Natale to give you the lowdown on the Home Performance Coalition's pro development, networking, certification, standards, activism, and publishing opportunities at the National Home Performance Conference. http://HomePerformance.org
That's a wrap on season 1 of Home Diagnosis! You can expect the episodes to be finished by our friends at ECG Productions in the coming months, to air on PBS stations everywhere by this coming winter! MASSIVE THANKS TO OUR VISIONARY TEAM OF SPONSORS:
