Hello, Diane:

Our content has captured your audience attention.   Clearly, we have tapped into a fresh subject matter that offers great hope for true energy performance in the widest method used stick-framing.

It is just the beginning of a solution that will transform the labor and energy issues facing builders today.

Thank you for the opportunity to present the awareness via your portal.

Sincerely,

Diane, the blog link below demonstrates the need for a fresh look at where the air leakage points are coming from. Suprised the building science community has not weighed in as they have had a thrity year of this knowledge. Perhapes that's why...builders get it though= 42 Shares/160 Likes.
