Home Diagnosis hosts Grace and Corbett Lunsford show the process of testing the gigantic old tree growing over their tiny house and normal sized new house. The question: whether to trust it and let it grow, or cut it down before it crushes important stuff. See how it works, and what the verdict was!
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!

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.
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
Corbett likes tools that are sexy and scary at the same time. This flow hood is both. Measure CFM, Drybulb, Wetbulb, Dewpoint, Velocity, and more with this very affordable tool that will help revolutionize the HVAC industry.
Watch building forensics expert Corbett Lunsford demonstrate Total External Static Pressure testing and pressure drop testing for a residential furnace and air conditioner. Learn to diagnose pressure problems in supply and return ductwork, filters, evaporator coils, and duct sections in just a few minutes with a minimum of testing tools!
Building forensics guru Corbett Lunsford gets his fix for prototypes of the testing tools we all know and love in the collection of American Treasure Neil Moyer: the first duct tightness tester (or Duct Blaster) built by Gary Nelson, a handmade flow pan (or Exhaust Fan Flow Hood), and a DIY House of Pressure!
Grace and Corbett Lunsford show not just the installation of APC Cork floating floor planks, but also the sound reduction testing to prove that it's performing the way it's supposed to! See the #TinyLab on the Proof Is Possible Tour in 2016: http://ProofisPossible.com
Today Corbett talks with Bill Spohn of TruTech Tools and James Bergmann of Stride Tool about where testing tools have been, where they're going, and how contractors are using them to prove they kick the competition's butts. This special episode is from the 2014 Fall Fast Track- learn more at HomePerformance.training
Today we talk with Colin Genge, founder and CEO of Retrotec, about the history of air leakage testing, how the tests really work (and what they doesn't actually test), and using home performance diagnostic techniques for playing competitive poker.
