Retrofitting for Performance: Crawlspace Encapsulation

Corbett Lunsford

Using 475 High Performance Building Supply materials, Corbett and his dad are encapsulating the vented crawlspace of a one-story ranch home in Atlanta. See what a difference the improvements make to the test data from the Ultra-Aire Sentry system and the blower door.

What We Know About HOMEChem

Corbett Lunsford

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.

Home Improvement to Tune Performance: Test-In

Corbett Lunsford

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.

TOOL REVIEW: DG-1000 from Energy Conservatory and Minneapolis Blower Door

Corbett Lunsford

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.

IAQ Sensors: Human Nose vs. Mass Spectrometer

Corbett Lunsford

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

5 Kinds of Ventilation for HOMEChem Control

Corbett Lunsford

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.
