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!

Hydroxyl Radical: the Don Juan of HOMEChem

Corbett Lunsford

Once ozone bonds with anything in your living space, it has a very bad baby- Hydroxyl Radical (OH). This sweaty, groping molecule is the drunken fratboy (with cargo shorts around his ankles) of the HOMEChem world. Featuring HOMEChem scientists Marina Vance, Delphine Farmer, and Charlie Weschler.

OZONE: the Original Villain of Indoor Chemistry

Corbett Lunsford

Indoor Air Quality is being explored at breakneck speed with the HOMEChem Experiment, and not surprisingly, ozone (O3) is proving to be the original villain in the complex system of interactions that make the air we breathe much more worrisome than anyone guessed. Featuring HOMEChem scientists Marina Vance, Delphine Farmer, Charlie Weschler, and Richard Corsi.

IAQ Sensors: Human Nose vs. Mass Spectrometer

Corbett Lunsford

Charlie Weschler sits down with Grace and Corbett and gives fascinating examples of the complexity of indoor air chemistry. He is an air quality legend, a professor on 3 continents, and one of the nicest guys you'll ever meet. More at: http://HomeDiagnosis.tv/homechem

5 Kinds of Ventilation for HOMEChem Control

Corbett Lunsford

Ventilation is simple in concept- it moves bad air out and good air in. But the applications can be intensely confusing- Grace and Corbett help peel the onion of controlling home performance dynamics (and the HOMEChem issues we're learning more and more about) using fans and controls available around the world.

Featured systems are AirCycler, Fantech, Broan-Nutone, RenewAire and Ultra-Aire.
