Home Diagnosis TV series co-host Corbett Lunsford shows the installation of the 5 layers of performance control under his family's new house. Thanks to Royal Building Products, Rockwool Insulation, Stego Industries, and the subcontractors who worked so hard to get this right! More at: https://HomeDiagnosis.tv/atlanta-homestead
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.

Thanks to Broan, Dwyer, Defender, Mason-Grant Consulting, and Lawrence Berkeley Nat'l Lab, the #TinyLab is the highest performance tiny house on wheels ever built. The air quality and moisture control is finely tuned, and in this video watch the testing of each subsystem of the mechanical ventilation system as a whole.
Watch stage three of the electrical system process as Corbett Lunsford brings Fall Fast Tracker Eddie Lammers of Honey Home Services to the #TinyLab for a very long day of wiring. See how the Panasonic PV panels interact with the Outback Power system from Soligent, how the RAB Lighting LEDs and the Mitsubishi and Broan HVAC equipment finally come online!
The #TinyLab is equipped with 960 Watts of PV solar panels, 4.8 kWh of nanocarbon AGM batteries, a 3.6 kW 48v Outback FlexPower ONE from Soligent, 100 Watts of RAB Lighting LEDs, a 1/2 ton Mitsubishi Ductless Minisplit Heat Pump, a 30 cfm Broan ERV/HRV, and a Hewlett-Packard HP Z840 computer. We also have a vacuum cleaner, for those who are concerned about cats. Hallelujah.
