The web is a wonderful source of information about the science of building a home. The problem can be that there is too much information to allow the casual reader to determine what is fact and what is fiction. Unfortunately, it is much too easy for parties with a vested interest in an area to make unsubstantiated or even false claims. For that reason, we believe that the best thing we can do is to steer you, our potential customer, to independent and objective sources of information.
Green Building Advisor (http://www.greenbuildingadvisor.com) provides information about all aspects of green building with a heavy emphasis on good building practices and energy conservation. The blog is a marvelous forum for discussion where visitors can post questions and expect to get informed answers from industry experts. If you become a frequent blog reader, you will see that even the experts can disagree from time to time.
Building Science Corporation (http://www.buildingscience.com) conducts research and field evaluation and is generally considered a leading authority in our field. Their work is available for study through a steady stream of publications, which are available on their website. If you want to know the “why” and not just the “how”, this is the place to go.
