Host Audree Grubesic on Offsite Dirt, discussed the energy escape and measurements with Mark Wille, High Performance Construction Tech Professional and special guests Emily Rhea of Eco Achievers and Joe Konopacki with Insight Property Services.
How does that affect us?
Homes have change significantly over the past 100 years and now we can build houses like a sealed cooler. The old homes are cold or drafty, this is due to energy escaping the home. These companies are all about conserving energy and using energy measuring tools to help us build better homes and buildings. Early on in the construction process there are new methods to create a plan, and save energy. If you are building the same house as a builder for the last 40 years, homeowners are requesting their home conserve more energy and have better air tightness. Builders are also interested in how they can reach a specific energy rating on their home or commercial builds to meet higher building codes.
