Even when you build a perfectly performing house, your client may feel like the house is exacerbating sickness. Know that a huge part of home performance contracting is knowing your way around psychology and adult education- express yourself with performance testing data AND with listening and emotional connection.
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!

Effortless does not mean "don't try hard". It means work your ass off and make it look easy. Use techniques and tools to be all you can be, Masterminds.
Diagnostics are the heart of all home performance work- testing will set you free with proof and prediction!
Getting the job done right is a critical part of the job, but what about educating your client on what was done and why it's important? What about reminding them 2 years later? Metrics are the crux of the whole home performance movement, from pre-improvement testing through continuous monitoring.
This week to illustrate 'Rocking the Client' Corbett broadcasts right before his Earth Day celebration keynote at the U.S. EPA's Region 4 headquarters in Atlanta! Danny Orlando, longtime supporter, is now a client- but it took 5 years to get here!
Corbett knows every Mastermind needs Master Plans, but overthinking doesn't do anyone any good. Learn to recognize when you're over-planning and expecting yourself to gain too much knowledge, skill, equipment, or personnel to make Mastery practical!
Each Wednesday of the 6-Week Mastermind Distance Course, Corbett releases a public video shoutout of a message to his Masterminds, or a question answered. This week: how to be the rockstar, despite people being idiots all around you.
Join Corbett as he shows off the advanced building performance testing and data gleaned from the past month's projects. This month, focus on simple, inexpensive tools that can help get your brain in shape to master building performance- HOBO dataloggers, theodolite photo app and roomscan app, and a great graphical weather forecaster.

Building forensics work shown in detail! Watch as I give a tour of a few of the diagnostics projects we worked on in the past month, especially a battle between two flow hoods that are both past due for calibration, duct tightness testing failures and what to do, and when performance testing professionals should get paid for their work.
