Each month we publish a newsletter titled IAQ Website of the Month. The excerpt below was originally published in the May 2010 newsletter.
Joe Lstiburek is a name that is synonymous with B.S. (building science, of course). If you have seen him speak or have read his articles in the ASHRAE Journal, you’ll agree that he is both peerless and fearless.
Joe is a principal at Building Science Corporation, a company that maintains the best building science website on the internet. What’s it all about? Here’s the description on the website
“building science.com provides objective, high-quality information about buildings. This resource combines building physics, systems design concepts, and an awareness of sustainability to promote the design and construction of buildings that are more durable, healthier, more sustainable and more economical than most buildings built today.”
The are innumerable resources divided into digests, insights, primers, reports, case studies, and more. I recommend setting aside an afternoon to read through all the free materials.
Here are some of my favorites:
- Glossary of building science terms
- Moisture Control for New Residential Buildings
- Pressures in Buildings
- Blame It On Star Trek-Solving IAQ Problems
