Kent Browning replied to Robin Henry's discussion Floor I joists and properly installed insulation
"I think there is a code requirement (IECC) that talks to what you are asking about. Starts on page 32 at this link - http://media.iccsafe.org/Annual/2016/IECC-Residential-and-Multi-Family-Real-World-Applications.pdf ;"

Kent Browning replied to James White's discussion Energy 2D and 3D in the group Building Simulations
"I would love to start a discussion on making these work. I tried Energy 2D and could not make it work. A manual or similar would help a lot."

Kent Browning replied to Tom Smith's discussion Are Energy Efficient Windows worth the investment?
"As others have said - replacement windows are helpful for comfort but don't expect them to payback in energy savings alone."

Kent Browning replied to Diane Chojnowski's discussion Presentation slides from the 2019 Building Science Summer Camp
"I am pretty sure those are not the Summer Camp slides. You should probably change your title to "Building Science Fundamentals" like the link says."

Kent Browning replied to Julie Saporito's discussion Heat pump failure during high heat days?
"This might be a little off topic for the question you asked - The industry is seeing an extremely high failure rate of capacitors for the last 5 to 10 years. My personal (anecdotal) experience is the capacitors fail more frequently as the outdoor…"

Kent Browning replied to Brennan Less's discussion Summer mid-day Condensation in newly insulated unvented, cathedral ceiling using foil-faced polyiso
"I ran into something similar recently. I suspect your situation is similar but I can't say for certain from pictures and post on internet. So verify for yourself. Joe Lstiburek has written articles on this and several others have made…"

Kent Browning replied to Jacob Corvidae's discussion The problems with gas stoves
"First - in answer to your question - I am not a PhD climatologist. I work with PhD's and they come to me for a reality check. I worked directly with Klaus Dannenburg. You might Google him and his dad (Conrad Dannenburg who came over from…"

Kent Browning replied to Jacob Corvidae's discussion The problems with gas stoves
"I agree that there is a LOT of data out there and some of it is "questionable". It would be easy to cherry-pick data to support whatever you thought was correct. But I went looking for historical CO2 level v global temperature. I found one…"

Kent Browning replied to Jacob Corvidae's discussion The problems with gas stoves
"Your are correct about Joe Bastardi's career. He also says that in the book. Then he goes on to show actual data on the current climate and the dire predictions. He points out that we are currently at about 400 PPM of CO2 in the atmosphere…"

Kent Browning replied to Jacob Corvidae's discussion The problems with gas stoves
"I find it interesting that an article popped up on my news feed about global warming warnings from long ago. In 1989 the United Nations issued a warning that we only had 10 years to 'fix' the global warming problem. Hmmm, 1989 plus 10…"

Kent Browning replied to Jacob Corvidae's discussion The problems with gas stoves
"WOW! And people believe this???? So let me see if I can unpack this. So everybody needs to replace their existing gas stove with an electric stove? And use electricity instead of gas? And what fuel source creates the electricity? Most commonly…"
