Episode 55: Tight Houses vs. Leaky Houses .

In this episode of the Build Podcast, Matt and Kristof Irwin go deep into the subject of mechanical design; duct layout, equipment selection, diffuser selection, and how to run it all through a home with the ultimate goal of occupant comfort and system efficiency.

They discuss how builders can get upstream of the HVAC layout so that mechanical designers don't have to make the best of a build that doesn't include room for heating and cooling systems. They define building science and discuss long-term vs. short-term owner satisfaction.

You don't want to miss this in-depth look into mechanical design, passive systems, and the craftsmanship of building science.
