I'd love to show you this, but my client has asked that I take this video down while they try to reconcile with the installer. Fingers crossed everybody, and sorry to be a tease.
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 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.
Corbett traveled from Atlanta to Orlando to help Matt Moreman of Obsessed Garage get all the spec's on his 4000 sq. ft. house. See the blower door setup, 3D modeling, kitchen exhaust hood pressure testing, and inspection of the home's exterior and attic in preparation for the Vitals Checkup package:
Next, we run the blower door depressurization and pressurization tests, and the beginnings of infrared thermography and zonal pressure testing across the house:
We continue going beyond the traditional 'energy audit' performance testing to create a prioritized map of home improvements to control comfort, moisture, air quality, energy efficiency and durability:
Time for home improvement conclusions and recommendations for Matt's family, including air sealing, duct sealing, and equalization of heat flow in rooms of the house:
As Matt plans for his future headquarters for Obsessed Garage, Corbett starts the energy consulting process for controlling all the invisible dynamics of the building: heat bleed, airflow and pressure, moisture, and air quality:
