  4. 4. Living Green Homes Penny Scheurer Licensed General Contractor Since 1995 Green Consultant for Indoor Air Quality, Energy Efficiency, Interior Design and Green Products
  5. 5. Existing Homes Energy Efficient Retro-fits Air Infiltration HVAC Systems Insulation Levels Indoor Air Quality Products (Finish Materials)
  6. 6. AIR INFILTRATION PROBLEMS Electrical holes in wood framing members. Ceiling fan with trim cover plate falling off.
  7. 7. AIR INFILTRATION PROBLEMS Pipe penetration from Garage to inside of house. Laundry wall with drywall damage from a water leak.
  8. 8. HVAC SYSTEMS THAT FAIL Ducts disconnected at main air handler. 4 out of 5 duct systems leak an average of 35%- 50% of conditioned air. Disconnected duct bringing in hot/cold air from attic.
  9. 9. HVAC SYSTEMS THAT FAIL Disconnected duct coupling that has Asbestos wrap around it. Indoor Air Quality is terrible in our existing homes. Looks like rats are eating their Asbestos Dinner.
  10. 10. INSULATION DEFECTS Sloppy and missing attic insulation. Completely missing insulation and rat traps.
  11. 11. INSULATION DEFECTS Insulation that has been just thrown into the attic, stepped on and misplaced. Interstitial wall cavity connecting the floors and attic together.
  12. 12. INDOOR AIR QUALITY PROBLEMS Rat droppings at the leaky HVAC handler to duct work. This must be a warm/cold spot. Whole house fan blowing air into the attic. What’s wrong with this ?
  13. 13. INDOOR AIR QUALITY PROBLEMS Waste drain vent disconnected with Methane gases seeping into the attic. How clean is your HVAC return filter ?
  14. 14. Effects of Air Leakage These are typical pictures of what we see when we test the average home. Cold air infiltrates from below. Hot air escapes from up above. This creates a stack effect, which makes homes drafty, hot/cold, which in turn, costs more money to operate efficiently. Not to mention the Asthma and Allergy problems we see on a daily basis.
  15. 15. AIR INFILTRATION SOLUTIONS Seal and caulk all blocks, brackets, and nail penetrations coming into the home. Also install moisture barrier at all openings.
  16. 16. AIR INFILTRATION SOLUTIONS Rim joists from first story to second story and electrical penetrations all need to be sealed and/or insulated properly. This will help prevent air from traveling inside the walls and to other floors.
  17. 17. AIR INFILTRATION SOLUTIONS Stairways have major air infiltration problems to each floor. Sealing them off helps stop any dirt, dust, and possible mold spores from traveling from basement to floors and walls.
  18. 18. AIR INFILTRATION SOLUTIONS All electrical boxes (especially exterior) should be sealed tightly, this stops conditioned air from moving around between basement, floors and walls.
  19. 19. HVAC SYSTEMS THAT WORK Properly installed Liquid Mastic, Metal Tape, Zip Ties, and Insulation Wrap. these are great ways to seal duct vents from leaking conditioned air into the basements, walls and attic areas.
  20. 20. HVAC SYSTEMS THAT WORK Properly sealed ducts at the Plenum, will help stop air leakage and make your HVAC System perform at it’s highest levels. Insulation at Plenum will distribute the air where it needs to go.
  21. 21. PROPERLY INSTALLED INSULATION Blown-in Cellulose (Recycled Newspaper) covering the attic ceiling joists a minimum 12”. Fiberglass Insulation properly installed.
  22. 22. PROPERLY INSTALLED INSULATION Quality of Insulation installation (QII) and touching all sides of wall cavity. 8”+ of Spray-in foam at roof rafters. This is what we call a tightly sealed Building Envelope.
  23. 23. INDOOR AIR QUALITY SOLUTIONS Zero-VOC paints throughout the interior of the home. Fireplace that is 94% efficient and vented to the outside.
  24. 24. INDOOR AIR QUALITY SOLUTIONS Tankless Water Heater to the outside of house. Sealing off the return chase Plenum of the HVAC System.
  25. 25. HOME PERFORMANCE with ENERGY STAR One “HOT” computer. One “HOT” Jason !!!
  26. 26. HOME PERFORMANCE with ENERGY STAR Infrared Camera tells us a lot about hot and cold spots throughout the houses. Temperature changes are easy to see and to define with diagnostic testing equipment.
  27. 27. HOME PERFORMANCE with ENERGY STAR Missing Insulation as seen from inside the attic area. Infrared picture as seen from in the bedroom side of missing attic insulation.
  28. 28. BLOWER DOOR TEST Blower door tests will tell us how leaky someone’s home really is. Then we can use Building Science Techniques to correct the issues within the home.
  29. 29. DUCT BLASTER TEST Duct Blasters show us how leaky the duct systems are. Then we take the necessary measures to correct those issues as well.
  30. 30. INFRARED CAMERA Entry front door not performing properly. Walls have multiple air infiltration issues that need to be resolved.
  31. 31. Home Performance Once we implement Home Performance with Energy Star- We DO NOT need all this solar to be green. Take care of the “Building Envelope” first- Then we need as little solar as possible.
