Corbett and Grace are thrilled with their Rockwool insulation, but it came off the truck with a few dents. Let's suck it up and admit this happens every day, on build sites everywhere. More reason to maintain a calm, level head and make sure inspections and testing happen too.
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!

Home Diagnosis co-host Corbett Lunsford will be presenting and doing a screening and Q&A of the TV series at 2019's national conference in Chicago, April 1-4. More at: http://www.homeperformance.org/conferences/HPC19
Corbett gives a crash course in the TEC’s DG-1000 used with Minneapolis Blower Door equipment (including the Duct Blaster, TruFlow Plate, and Exhaust Fan Flow Meter). TEC took away a few features like Equivalent Leakage Area estimation, but added the Tubing Assistant and firmware updating, which could endlessly add features based on user feedback.
Even when you build a perfectly performing house, your client may feel like the house is exacerbating sickness. Know that a huge part of home performance contracting is knowing your way around psychology and adult education- express yourself with performance testing data AND with listening and emotional connection.
Corbett and Kristof Irwin from Positive Energy Austin dive deep into the revolution that's brewing. Building Science will never be the same after the HOMEChem Experiment shows us the 4-dimensional chess game that's happening at a molecular level inside every building and vehicle in the world.

Meet Dr. Richard Corsi, the Frontiersman of HOMEChem.
Richard L. Corsi is Chair of the Department of Civil, Architectural and Environmental Engineering at the University of Texas at Austin and holds the Joe J. King Chair in Engineering #2. He is a Distinguished Alumnus of Humboldt State University (2006) and of the College of Engineering at UC Davis (2016). Dr. Corsi’s research focuses on sources, fate, human exposure and innovative control strategies related to indoor air quality. In recent years his team has focused significantly on indoor ozone chemistry and the nexus of building energy conservation and indoor air quality. He currently oversees a large grant to study indoor air quality in high schools and to develop low cost solutions to related problems for school districts.
