Building Green - Smarter Buildings-Given their environmental impact, it's time we designed from the earth up

If you're sitting in a conventional office building while you read this, take a moment to listen to your surroundings hum and breathe.

The HVAC system, the lights, the water, the elevators, the power and cooling for technology, the heating and cooling for people: all contribute to making buildings a significant source of greenhouse gas emissions "and a leading energy user. In fact, by 2025, buildings will use more energy than any other category of "consumer." (Already today, in the United States, they represent 70% of energy use.) And 40% of the world's current output of raw materials goes into buildings. That's about 3 billion tons ... annually.

Chinese drywall causes problems on the Treasure Coast

The contaminated Chinese drywall may be emitting one of several sulfur compounds including sulfur dioxide or hydrogen sulfide. While exposure to fumes from sulfur dioxide can create irritation and breathing disorders, exposure to hydrogen sulfide can be deadly.

Exposure to 50 parts per million of hydrogen sulfide for more than ten minutes can cause extreme irritation. Inhalation of 500 to 1,000 parts per million can cause unconsciousness and death through respiratory paralysis and asphyxiation, according to environmental experts.

Many believe that humidity causes the sulfur in the drywall to out gas (i.e., migrate into the indoor air) which not only creates a noxious odor, but corrodes copper

Commercial Heating Systems - Uponor - Commercial

Aesthetically Pleasing
Radiant works with any kind of floor covering and does not require unsightly ductwork in ceilings.

Clean and Quiet
Because a radiant system doesn t use fans or blowers, it s quiet and doesn t circulate dirt, dust or allergens around a structure.

Eco-friendly
Radiant systems are adaptable to various energy-efficient heat sources, including geothermal, solar and waste, as well as free sources of energy such as biomass.
Energy Efficient
The water in a radiant system has the capacity to transport energy 3,500 times greater than air, so it can heat using less energy than a forced-air system.

Guaranteed Satisfaction
An Uponor radiant heating system is backed by a 30-year limited warranty when installed by an Uponor-trained professional.

Proven Reliability
For over 35 years, more than 12 billion feet of our tubing has been installed in radiant, plumbing and fire safety systems worldwide.

Consumer Dangers

If you read the basic mission of the Consumer Product Safety Commission in the United States, you see that it is charged with, “Protecting the public from unreasonable risks of injury or death associated with the use of the thousands of types of consumer products under the agency’s jurisdiction.” And yet, if you read a bit farther you see something quite startling. What is so startling? Even though this group admits that its sworn duty is to protect consumers, there are more than $1 trillion in costs related to death, injury, and property damage due to unsafe or unhealthy products each year.

Energy Efficient Doors & Windows - Jeld-Wen

Sustainable construction design does not mean to do without, but rather, to do the same with less. When compared to transportation and manufacturing, buildings in aggregate are our highest energy consumption segment in the United States, a good portion of which is for air-conditioning. Considering their current economic woes, schools do well to save money wherever possible, utilizing the savings for other needs.

Today, schools are being built and renovated to be as energy-efficient as possible. In this regard, high-efficiency windows play an important role. But as we've been primarily focused (and for good reason) on improving our energy consumption, the need to take a close look at another important building science topic is apparent.

The airtightness of the building envelope is an important key to understanding the performance of any new house. Uncontrolled air leakage can result in high fuel bills, failure of building components, and increased builder callbacks. As a result, more and more time is being spent by the building trades sealing up new houses in an effort to reduce problems associated with air leakage.

Yet at the same time, most builders are continuing to rely on uncontrolled air leakage through holes and cracks in the building envelope to provide adequate ventilation for the occupants.

An upgrade option that saves you money and can reduce your insurance rates.

Durable

Faster
Sprinklers put out most fires in seconds, before the fire department arrives and before there's major damage.
Guaranteed
The tubing behind the Uponor AQUASAFE System comes with a 25-year limited warranty when installed by an Uponor-trained professional.

Reliable
Sprinklers respond to heat not smoke, and draw water from your main cold water line. The odds of a malfunction are just one in 16 million.

Safer
While smoke detectors alone increase survival rates by 50%, adding sprinklers increases that to 97%.

Fire Sprinkler - Legislative Alert

New legislation is threatening the adoption of home fire sprinkler provisions for new one- and two-family dwellings. Across the United States, sprinkler opponents are pushing state legislation that would restrict a community s ability to make its own decision about model safety codes for new construction. The legislation would prevent any community from implementing any new sprinkler mandates in one- and two-family homes. If it becomes law, such legislation will put lives at risk.

Comfort, be it in your home or business, is the ultimate issue. A new furnace and/or air conditioner is a critical part of your system, but think in terms of "the system". The furnace and/or air conditioner, duct system, registers and grills, thermostat, chimney/venting system plus all other items making up "the system" need to be evaluated as part of any heating/cooling equipment change. Together, the equipment and "the system" provide the comfort, security and dependability desired.

Geothermal Heat Pumps - Heating & cooling Systems - US-DOE

Geothermal Heat Pumps
Geothermal heat pumps (sometimes referred to as GeoExchange, earth-coupled, ground-source, or water-source heat pumps) have been in use since the late 1940s. Geothermal heat pumps (GHPs) use the constant temperature of the earth as the exchange medium instead of the outside air temperature. This allows the system to reach fairly high efficiencies (300%-600%) on the coldest of winter nights, compared to 175%-250% for air-source heat pumps on cool days.

Ice Dams - U. of Massachusetts - Preventing Ice Dams

All ice-dam situations have two things in common: They happen because melting snow pools behind dams of ice at the roof's edge and leaks into the house; also, ice dams and the damage that results from them is avoidable.


click here

Ice Dams - U. of Minnesota Extension - What is an ice dam?

A ridge of ice that forms at the edge of a roof and prevents melting snow (water) from draining off the roof. The water that backs up behind the dam can leak into a home and cause damage to walls, ceilings, insulation, and other areas.

click here

Ice Dams - US: DEP & DOE - Ice Dams

Ice dams usually occur after a heavy snowfall and several days of freezing temperatures. Warm air inside your home leaks into the attic and will warm the underside of the roof causing snow and ice on the roof to melt. The melted water will drain along the roof, under the snow, until it reaches the cold overhang. The overhang tends to be at the same temperature as the outdoors and the melted water will refreeze and form an ice dam and icicles.

Insulation - Rock Wool -US DOE-Energy Efficiency & Renewable Energy (EERE)

The term "mineral wool" typically refers to two types of insulation material:

Rock wool - a man-made material consisting of natural minerals like basalt or diabase.

Slag wool - a man-made material from blast furnace slag (the scum that forms on the surface of molten metal).

Mineral wool contains an average of 75% post-industrial recycled content. It doesn't require additional chemicals to make it fire resistant, and it can be used in two different insulation forms: blanket (batts and rolls) and loose-fill.

Insulation - Should wet insulation be replaced? Owens Corning

The water presence would cause the insulation to have reduced thermal performance. However, this is only a temporary situation. As soon as the water evaporates and the insulation becomes dry again, it will regain its original performance level.

If the product has been saturated with dirty or contaminated water, Owens Corning recommends that it be replaced.

Mold Information - Medlineplus source of the US Library of Medicine & the National Institutes of Health

Molds are fungi that can be found both outdoors and indoors. They grow best in warm, damp and humid conditions. If you have damp or wet spots in your house, you will probably get mold. Mold can cause health problems. Inhaling or touching mold or mold spores may cause allergic reactions or asthma attacks in sensitive people. It can cause fungal infections. In addition, mold exposure may irritate your eyes, skin, nose, throat and lungs.

Pollutants from Nonpoint Sources: Pesticides and Toxic Chemicals
Pesticides typically enter a waterbody through surface water runoff, often from a farm field or from neighborhoods where they are applied on lawns. Pesticides can also enter a waterbody as a result of spray drift. This occurs when the pesticide is sprayed over an area, and the wind blows some of the spray into a nearby waterbody.

Follansbee roofs are ideal for fine homes because they conform as easily to organic, flowing curves as they do to classic pitched designs. A TCS II bare metal roof can look techno, retro, even natural. And when painted, Terne II Follansbee roofs evoke historic proportions, as the name KlassicKolors implies.

Roof Ventilation - BuildingGreen.com

Roof Ventilation ProductsAdequate ventilation of attic spaces helps keep buildings with pitched roofs cooler in the summer and reduces the risks of ice dams in the winter. Some evidence indicates that certain roofing materials experience less thermal stress and last longer on properly ventilated roofs, though this contention is hotly debated. Ridge vents in conjunction with soffit vents create an effective ventilation flow, with air entering at the soffits and exiting at the ridge. The ventilation performance of ridge and soffit vents is superior to either gable-end vents or rooftop ventilators. Insulated roofs require an air channel between the insulation and the roof sheathing. Ventilating underlayment products installed beneath roof shingles and tiles allows the roofing to dry uniformly between rain events "increasing life and minimizing mold growth.

Roof Ventilation - The Natural Handyman

Since the energy crisis of the '70's, the climate of our attics has taken on more importance as we have insulated, weather-stripped and sealed our homes into virtual mausoleums. The idea of actually allowing a part of our home to be cold... and to do it intentionally... can give one the chills! It seems a contradiction to all the brainwashing we have received regarding the absolute need for an energy efficient home. But your attic is unlike other areas of your home, performs different functions and, to do its job, must be allowed to... breathe!!

Roof Ventilation - "This Old House" Improving Attic Ventilation

The attic is a place to store clothes, luggage and old family photos, but for energy researchers it's a hot topic of discussion. In the last several decades, building codes have called for increased attic insulation.

Septic Systems - EPA - What to Do after the Flood

Do not drink well water until it is tested
Do not use the sewage system until water in the soil absorption field is lower than the water level around the house.
Have your septic tank professionally inspected and serviced if you suspect damage.
Most septic tanks are not damaged by flooding since they are below ground and completely covered.
Septic tanks and pump chambers can fill with silt and debris, and must be professionally cleaned.
If the soil absorption field is clogged with silt, a new system may have to be installed.
Only trained specialists should clean or repair septic tanks.

Solar Grand Plan - By 2050 solar power could end U.S. dependence on foreign oil and slash greenhouse gas emissions

A massive switch from coal, oil, natural gas and nuclear power plants to solar power plants could supply 69 percent of the U.S. s electricity and 35 percent of its total energy by 2050.
A vast area of photovoltaic cells would have to be erected in the Southwest. Excess daytime energy would be stored as compressed air in underground caverns to be tapped during nighttime hours.
Large solar concentrator power plants would be built as well.
A new direct-current power transmission backbone would deliver solar electricity across the country.
But $420 billion in subsidies from 2011 to 2050 would be required to fund the infrastructure and make it cost-competitive.

Trus Joists - TJI-the wooden I-joist

Trus Joist developed the wooden I-joist 35 years ago. Engineered to provide strength and consistency, these joists are a key part of making a high-performance floor. The dimensional stability of TJI joists helps them resist the warping, twisting, and shrinking that can lead to squeaky floors. TJI joists are light weight and come in long lengths. This helps save on labor, because they're faster and easier to install than traditional framing. These same features have made them a popular choice for roof joists as well.

Wood Destroying Insects (WDI) - Powder Post Beetles

Wood boring beetles are a major cause of structural damage in homes and other structures. They can attack hardwoods and softwoods depending on the variety. Often, they are referred to as "power post beetles", athough three separate families of beetles (lyctids, anobiids, and old house borers) are responsible for most of the beetle damage to structural wood.

Wood Destroying Insects - Termite Information

Subterranean termites are the most common and economically important wood-destroying organisms in the United States. Termites feed on materials that contain cellulose, primarily dead wood and wood by-products. Subterranean termites are closely associated with the soil habitat where they excavate a network of tunnels through the soil to reach water and food. These termites need moisture to survive.

This is a family of rather small and well-known beetles. Only few people actually ever see them, though. Their damage in wood, especially furniture, is notorious and the rather small holes through which the beetles leave the wood are known to almost all. This family of beetles has many common names. Woodworms is one of them, but they are also known as Deathwatch Beetles, Wood-borers, Furniture Beetles and Timber Beetles. And there is more. Not only do these animals attack wood, some species also do a lot of damage in bakeries, drugstores etc
