Tuning the Enclosure of our Atlanta Home Build

Corbett Lunsford

Corbett digs into the weather barriers, structures, airsealing and insulation layers of the high performance house in Atlanta, which will be featured in season 2 of the Home Diagnosis TV series.

*CORRECTION: Pango Wrap is 15-mil thick, not 20, but is still a 0.01-perm vapor barrier.

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.
