Tom Phillips replied to Tim Kendzia's discussion Cooling effect from solar panels
"HI Dennis; good point re: PV benefit of load shifting re: waste heat. I was referring to the whole cooling system, which is removing heat from a building.  If the building shell and cooling system are not very efficient, then PV systems are…"

Kitchen Ventilation

In many homes, cooking is the largest indoor source of air pollutants. Exposures can be higher in the kitchen compared to other places in the home. We can still enjoy the many benefits of cooking by installing and using range hoods that vent to the outdoors. This group will promote discussion about how to select effective range hoods, strategies to improve the efficiency of existing ventilation systems for kitchen pollutants, and what to do in homes that don’t have ducting already installed…See More

Tom Phillips replied to Chris Bellanca's discussion Overheating garage

Tom Phillips replied to Robert Bean's discussion Low velocity consequences in the group Kitchen Ventilation
