The equipment is always improvingLet’s see what TEC can do next: maybe a powerful calibrated fan that does not weigh 33 pounds…The new DG1000-based blower door kit retails for $3,295. I don’t do blower door work every day, but I do enough of it to appreciate the attention to detail that The Energy Conservatory (TEC) built into its new blower door kit. The kit features a digital pressure and air flow gauge, the DG1000.I have used both TEC and Retrotec blower door kits and found them trustworthy and rugged. And I once asked TEC principal Gary Nelson if there were any reasons we should include just one of the two blower door equipment options in our BuildingGreen-approved products directory.“Hmm…you are giving me a golden marketing opportunity,” started Gary, “but to be honest, both companies make good equipment; you should list them both.”But recently I got to work with a brand spanking new TEC blower door kit that included the DG1000, and here are the features that sold me:(1) All the equipment fits together physically. What I mean by this is:The blower door frame no longer has a clunky “gun” case; it has a soft but rugged fabric case with a slot for each frame member. The new case ismuch easier to deal with in terms of transporting and storing.There is a single sturdy mounting plate for both the digital gauge and the rheostat or fan speed controller, with a screw jack that makes it really easy to secure to a door frame or other trim, at any height.The DG1000 has four corner backside magnets that correspond to the same configuration on the metal of the mounting plate, so it’s easy to mount and release the gauge, even while it is held firmly in place.The fan speed controller has a built-in cooling fan so it never overheats, no matter how long you may run the blower door, at any speed.The DG1000 is essentially now a gauge and computer, but it is still rugged and comes with a very robust case — so no worries for the rough-and-ready aspect of work on job sites. (2) The DG1000 is sophisticated and intuitive.All of the DG1000 screens are uncluttered, well-organized, and sequential.You can back out of any place within the functions and options.Images or icons make it easy to navigate.The DG1000 can be connected to your computer in three different ways: with a USB port, ethernet port, Wi-Fi, or via an app (TEC AutoTest) on your iPhone or iPad.The DG-1000 can be a Wi-Fi hub.(3) The TEC help system is really unparalleled; the company offers:A whole library of pdf guidesA whole library of how-to TEC website and YouTube videos.Quick-response human tech support.But enough of what I think about the new TEC blower door kit; I decided to check in with one of the most seasoned building performance specialists in our industry, Andy Wahl of AC Home Performance of Bay Point, California. Andy has conducted thousands of building audits; his first blower door in 1990 had a wooden frame! Andy was also involved in TEC development of the DG1000.“I really like the new screen; it’s much easier to see and read,” begins Andy Wahl. “I also like the rechargeable user replaceable batteries. But there are two functional aspects of the new system that are important to my work:Long averaging of building depressurization when investigating combustion appliance performance; other systems have a 2-minute limit on averaging.Being able to see the blower door numbers on my phone while reading the digital pressure gauge in my hand (when doing series leakage work).”Andy also thought that the ability to update the DG1000 is a huge advantage. “There are all kinds of capabilities that we talked about as the DG1000 was being developed that we might not necessarily see yet, but these will be easily added over time,” says Andy. One example dear to Andy’s heart is setting up the DG1000 with a checklist system so that any user can be literally walked through the steps it takes to do any manner of blower door work.“We have to be careful, though; we don’t want a tool like the DG1000 to get so easy that we don’t need trainers like me anymore,” joked Andy. P.S. – I got to road test the new TEC blower door kit because TEC is a sponsor of a new series of workshops that Steve Baczek and I are doing called Homebuilding Crossroads: 2015 Energy Code & High Performance. At each of the first three events, a group of about 30 of the 100+ attendees stayed for a blower door demonstration and discussion.That is no coincidence or anomaly: the fact that the 2015 International Energy Conservation Code requires blower door airtightness testing of 3 ach50 or less is bringing a whole new group of building professionals into the building science and high performance arena. Steve and I (and the workshop sponsors) believe that our industry is turning an important corner – the one where understanding and practicing building science-driven high performance is no longer optional. It’s a good time to be putting a blower door kit into your toolbox, if you have not already.last_img read more

Barry Bonds’ plaque used to be in the outlined area.The commemorative plaque honoring home run king Barry Bonds’ record 756th clout is  missing from AT&T Park in San Francisco.Giants spokeswoman Staci Slaughter said Tuesday night that the reigning World Series champions are in the process of replacing the plaque, which hung on the brick facade inside the ballpark beneath the flag court area in right-center field until a few days ago. The team is investigating where the missing hardware might be, Slaughter said.“We’re in the process of replacing it,” Slaughter said. “We’re not sure what happened. We’re reviewing video, but haven’t found anything yet.”There is still white glue on the brick wall where the plaque used to be.Bonds, the seven-time NL MVP, broke Hank Aaron’s home run record on Aug. 7, 2007, at home in San Francisco. The slugger hasn’t played since that season, finishing his 22-year major league career with 762 total home runs. He has been back to the ballpark as a fan in recent seasons, receiving standing ovations from the crowd that still cheers him despite allegations he used performance-enhancing drugs to fuel his pursuit of Aaron’s mark.Bonds long has denied ever knowingly using steroids or performance-enhancing drugs and the 48-year-old slugger appealed his obstruction of justice conviction from April 2011 on one count of giving an evasive answer to a 2003 grand jury investigating illegal steroids distribution.In February, a lawyer for Bonds urged a federal appeals court to toss out the slugger’s obstruction of justice conviction, saying a rambling answer he gave while testifying before a grand jury in December 2003 was not a crime. read more

Ferreira reminded contractors of their duty to protect the environment at Thursday’s ‘Moving Forward’ Contractors Association’s Construction Training Seminar, under the theme “Building Each Other for a Better Bahamas.”The Minister addressed contractors and other members of the construction industry at New Covenant Baptist Church on East West Highway.  He highlighted the importance of their profession in controlling pollution, and other threats and hazards to the environment, stating that the resources in our environment are not unlimited and we must appreciate that we are all interconnected, which makes all of us our ‘brothers’ and sisters’ keeper.’“The environment is everything and everything depends on the circumstances by which we live.  Those conditions determine everything and includes everything, living and non-living; the natural and the built environment.  Our environment serves its purpose in preserving our life each and every day.  It is our duty to value it, and to care about the health of our environment, and conscientiously protect our environment from any damage,” said Minister Ferreira.He added that no one could deny the construction industry plays an important role in building national socio-economic development, through creating structure, shelter, and employment.“We all know that the strength of our economy is directly related to the construction industry because whenever it goes down, the ripple effect is felt through every sphere in our community.  Construction is our third industry and contributes to 10 percent of our GDP.  Today the Bahamian Construction Industry is starting to show signs of growth as it recovers from the recent downturn in the economy,” said Minister Ferreira.The seminar ended on Saturday, February 10, 2018.By: Gena GibbsPhoto captions: Header: Minister of the Environment & Housing, the Hon.

first_img Apple Aug 31 • Your phone screen is gross. Here’s how to clean it Microsoft is jumping on the digital health bandwagon. Gety Images For the past couple years, tech companies like Apple, Google and even Facebook have been doing something seemingly against their interests: Encouraging us to stop using them. On Monday, Microsoft joined those companies by encouraging business people to be more mindful of their time too. The new features, built into the company’s Office 365 business productivity service for Windows PCs, Macs and mobile devices, tracks how people use their computers and then displays that information on a dashboard.For example, Microsoft’s software will soon start showing people how often they focused on a task and for how long. And it will also cheer them on if they successfully disconnected after work. You can even set goals for how often you have quiet days, Microsoft said. Read on ZDNet: Microsoft Build 2019: Azure is the star, and Windows is a bit player The new features, announced at the company’s Build developer conference in Seattle, are the latest in a growing trend of tech companies aiming to make us feel better about using their devices and services. They’re doing this by encouraging us to be more mindful about how much of our lives get taken up by technology in the first place. At Apple, this comes as part of a feature called Screen Time, which shows you how often you use your phone and what types of apps you’re using most. You can also set limits on how long you can use specific apps, like Facebook. Google’s Android software for phones and tablets has a tool called Digital Wellbeing that offers similar features. Even Facebook and Instagram, which are often derided as places people zone out and lose hours tapping and scrolling, have a screen time feature. For Microsoft, these features are part of a broader refinement to Microsoft’s Office 365 business software. The suite, which includes access to the company’s popular Word, Excel, PowerPoint, OneNote and Outlook apps, is used by 180 million people. Microsoft said the new features will be available “in the next few months.”  Aug 31 • iPhone XR vs. iPhone 8 Plus: Which iPhone should you buy?
