Industry colleague John Barba turned me around to have a look at what Allison A. Bailes III, Ph.D. was doing over at his Energy Vanguard site. I’m glad I did because the good doc has taken his Ph.D. in Physics and applied it to everyday challenges facing the world of building science.
He’s one of those guys that can take complex topics and turn them around so the average Jill and Jack can understand them. We’re a big fan of talent like that so we’re giving Allison A. Bailes III, Ph.D and Energy Vanguard two thumbs up.
We’ve signed up for his topic notifications which are always valuable and suggest you do the same. Plus if you want to hear a great discussion on buildings and building performance check out John Barba's interview with Dr. Bailles over at the Taco FloPro Podcasts. Well worth the listen!
Be sure to check out all the new pages we've been uploading over at the www.healthyheating.com site. Here are just a few including some that have been updated:
- Effects of enclosure performance on thermal comfort and energy use.
- Wall R value correction spreadsheet - effects of framing factors and window area (free!)
- Housing Performance Characterizations
- What is Radiant Based HVAC?
Plus you can read our thoughts on raising the benchmark in the inaugural issue of BetterBuildings (7mb).
