    Emerson, Are you directing the crew, or have you hired a crew of experienced insulation contractors? The best approach (a) maintains a continuous ventilation channel, from the soffit vents to ...

    Thanks, Jerry, for clearing up the confusion. Here is a link:

    Douglas, Somehow, I don't think I'll live long enough to see the day when I can send my car to town to go get some electricity. But there is no harm in dreaming. Since I live off-grid, I know ...

    Ryan, You really like to overthink, don't you? I vote for building an air-sealed box out of rigid foam and then inserting your "Ox Box" in the rigid foam box. Concerning the intersection ...

    Douglas, The answer to your question has nothing to do with "reflecting heat." At night, the thermal performance of your windows can be assessed by looking at a single metric: U-factor. The ...

    The solar shingle has been a dream of mine since thin film solar was first proposed, 40 years ago. In all this time, despite continued development, the efficiency, durability and aesthetic nuts ...

    I ended up picking up 5/8" Thermax "sheathing" to form a continuous barrier inside of my stud wall of my kitchen - after I caulk the sheathing joints and install R-15 unfaced Roxul. However, I ...

    David, When you add a rainscreen gap, you end up with siding that proud of the old trim. The right way to proceed is to remove the existing window trim, flash properly, add shims or jamb ...

    Doug, While I'll defer to others who may have better logic or more complete understanding I'm using high SHGC windows on the North because they experience solar gain, by reflected ...

    Michael, It seems that you understand the principles fairly well. With storm windows, the aim is to have a very low rate of air leakage at the primary window, and a little bit of air leakage at ...

    Sorry I quit typing too soon. Sophisticated compressor monitoring&control firmware is needed to "get the most "out of these compressors. Output gas temperature must be monitored and set an ...

    Hello I opted for a simple off the shelf approach. Horizontal v-groove T&G cedar fixed onto vertical 1x4 treated furring strips. To attach I toe-nailed at an angle with 16g Stainless brads (2 per ...

    I also wanted to mention there is a decent amount of air that comes through the window weight pulleys so air is infiltrating the window weight pockets from the exterior. The house has vinyl ...

    All, First I apologize for the confusion. As I said, I'm in the process of building a "pretty good house near Lexington Kentucky. How best to heat a "pretty good house is not settled ...

    I've acquired all the materials for this project. The Thermax I received is foil faced on both sides. It's actually a little more beat up than I was expecting. Wanted to see if there was any ...

    A crew of 3-6 has been busy for 3 days. Crawlspaces are complete, kneewalls are nearly complete, attic is partially complete. I will post photos if anyone is interested. SLOPE: We had planned ...

    Dana, The graph, figure 5, of COP vs ODT is at constant, rated condition or actual available, thermal output NO MODULATION!. COP drops as capacity (compressor speed) is reduced! Some ...

    Chris & Martin, I think I may have found something. Maybe. Take a look at "Gree Multi Variable".
  • Calum Wilde | Jan 12,2018 07:44 PM EST
    Dana, thank you very much for the thorough answer. "from an already low COP" Looking at the information in that lab test, and comparing specs, it looks like the 12RLS has good COP compared to ...
  • Jerry Liebler | Jan 12,2018 07:16 PM EST
    I'll defer to anyone who has a logical difference with my RECOMMENDATION which is: Absolutely better to run 2 degrees warmer set point on 1 than 2 units. Regardless of the characteristics of ...
