Just from the BPI group, lots of talk about the new 4 certifacations.... Any ideas on how BPI intends to test for these when we have no trainers/proctors for these?  As of yet, there is no real info on what will be needed for these other than if you have H.S. education, clean record and years of experiance in the construction/energy industries.

Good day.  I have been providing the How To Finance Energy Upgrades for the CBPCA since August.    Despite the loss of PACE, there are many good financing options available.   The new PowerSaver Pilot from FHA will become available in March and will offer 50% up front funding and low interest rates.   Our challenge is to provide additonal value in the home.  Any comments are welcome
Comment by A. Tamasin Sterner on December 8, 2010 at 5:53am
Thanks, Dale. Curious - have you compared draft pressure measurements using the three different probes/tubes you mentioned? It would be interesting to see the data.
Comment by Dale Sherman on December 7, 2010 at 10:59pm
Hey, Paul and Tamasin. Dwyer Instruments has some nice info on measuring low velocity static pressure (draft). Straight in is the best way to measure the low velocity airflow in a stack. An 'L' shape would be better for measuring duct velocities, but a regular 'L' shaped pitot tube will also work for measuring the static pressure, just ignore the velocity pressure port on a pitot tube.

Thanks Tom for reminding me to register The Pure Energy Center on the HE Guide to Training Programs!
Comment by A. Tamasin Sterner on December 7, 2010 at 5:53pm
Oh, Paul, you are my idol! We have done some research on which probes to use to measure draft pressure because we found different pressures with the two different probes while testing the same appliance... We started out using the static pressure probe tips. Then we moved to straight probes and found inconsistent results. We've decided to always use the static pressure probe tips. And, because we do QA and QC (Final Inspections) after work is complete, we have the responsibility to be as or MORE accurate than the contractors (because we have the power to fail jobs). If our probe measures low draft pressure and the contractor's probe measured a stronger draft, we might fail a job for inadequate draft pressure. This isn't OK if we aren't using the correct probe. So we use the static pressure probe tips.

We didn't know about the warranty void for drilling holes in draft diverters. At least we fill the holes with chrome hole plugs (at a buck a piece!).
Comment by Paul Raymer on December 5, 2010 at 11:58am
Drilling draft diverters
There are some You Tube videos and other training programs that promote drilling the draft diverter in order to access the undiluted CO more easily. It is my understanding that doing so will void the warranty on the water heater and that it is better to use an 'L' shaped adapter to reach the undiluted flue gases.

I also think we should arrive at consensus on whether or not using a straight tube or 'L' shaped static pressure probe is the right way to measure draft. Seems like the straight tubes go into the flue at a variety of angles and inconsistent depths.
