Happy Mothers Day! And yes, your hosts Duane Knickerbocker and Bill Small were birthed by incredibly wonderful women. While they weren’t as sophisticated about reducing energy consumption they did produce some pretty talented offspring. How on earth do you raise two boys to get into home energy efficiency? Start with nature and let it go from there. That’s why the more you can do to Reduce before you Produce, you’ll be that much better off as nature does some of the work for you. In today’s show, whole house fans take a front seat. They rely on the natural ambient temperature and simply move it from the cooler outside to the warmer inside and voila, no A/C and a cooler home!
Then, there’s the discussion with a caller that took place about her interest in how to heat and cool a ductless room. Now that’s a real conundrum. Or is it? Hear how the boys from Brower knew exactly what to do and how to make it the most efficient solution possible.
The “fix” may surprise you.
