Corbett compares the Speck, Foobot, and CPS SmartAir IAQ indoor air quality monitors, and discusses why some measurements are more important than others.
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!

It's easy to overthink building science decisions- here, Corbett quickly summarizes the basics of controlling moisture in the Lunsford family home build, and for any home. Interactions between materials and systems like GP ForceField, Rockwool Insulation, and Ultra-Aire ventilating dehumidifiers are simple to understand if you use the 4-3-2-1 approach.

xEffortless Rocking means not trying to re-invent the wheel. Plenty of great home performance minds came before you, so take their ideas and make them your own. This one comes from Joe Lstiburek and John Straube at https://buildingscience.com/.
Corbett runs a full enclosure diagnostic on a one-story ranch for his family before planning and performing the improvements on vented crawlspace and attic.
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.
