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 shows the simple solution used to mitigate radon in the 1960's retrofit project. One fan, one pipe, one hour, problem solved.

If you only learn one video's worth of HOMEChem, this is the one to watch. Hear principal investigators Delphine Farmer and Marina Vance, joined by Lea Hildebrandt Ruiz and Richard Corsi and the rest of the HOMEChem researchers, describe the complexity they uncovered in this seminal study.

Corbett Lunsford loves infrared cameras (he has six of them, including this FLIR One Pro) but they're not the whole story. Pair your diagnostic tools to be a mastermind of home performance.

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.
Corbett gives a crash course in the TEC’s DG-1000 used with Minneapolis Blower Door equipment (including the Duct Blaster, TruFlow Plate, and Exhaust Fan Flow Meter). TEC took away a few features like Equivalent Leakage Area estimation, but added the Tubing Assistant and firmware updating, which could endlessly add features based on user feedback.
Charlie Weschler sits down with Grace and Corbett and gives fascinating examples of the complexity of indoor air chemistry. He is an air quality legend, a professor on 3 continents, and one of the nicest guys you'll ever meet. More at: http://HomeDiagnosis.tv/homechem
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.
