..... the added air space & R-40 insulation made a big difference.
BTW, Wayne, I love the doors you build. If I could ever persuade my wife to allow me to buy one, I'd definitely get something. Perhaps someday...
I heard a report on the radio recently saying that home owners would be better off starting with the unseen, un-glamorous improvements like better insulation, windows etc. instead of solar panels.
JLM - I want to thank you for your contributions in the household energy savings threads. It is invaluable to me to have a qualified and experienced engineer willing to help explain these issues and provide hints and advice on a subject I have found many an installer does not fully understand. Unlike many people in the news I have nothing but respect for science and what it has brought us. I'm taking this opportunity to thank you publicly in a selfish hope that you will continue to add clarity and sanity to a topic that has been badly victimized by greed induced misinformation campaigns. Keep up the good work ---- please.
Also feel I should mention having read once (and believed it) that ceiling fans DO NOT cool the room --- they only cool the occupants. I took that to mean shut off the fan when you leave the room.
The aerodynamic design of fans hasn't changed in decades. Newer fans are quieter simply because the bearings are less worn. Otherwise quieter fans means they're pushing less air.
