Here's an excerpt of an email I wrote in support of adding large central returns in a finished basement directly adjacent the unit, with transfer grilles at the top of the basement stairs. The overwhelming majority of HVAC technicians reject this as something that can never work. One of the amazing things about trying this is that the effects are […]

Here's a quick update on our pursuit of a more fuel efficient fleet

IMG_20150802_191049277.jpgimgmax1024

Something I'm very uncomfortable with is the impact of all the fossil fuels Tay River consumes. We'll travel up to an hour for building shell work, which means that we'll cover much of the Philadelphia suburbs, and as far north as Edison NJ.

So this is pretty weird

IMG_20130830_111325_819.jpgimgmax1024

The owner of this house has suffered 3 years of pretty serious condensation problems in summer just beneath the photo. Multiple contractor visits, pans everywhere to catch dripping water.
