Every year for the past 20 plus years Therma-Stor (more specifically Ken Gehring) has attended the industry famous Westford Symposium on Building Science, or better known as Building Science Summer Camp. The event brings together some of the greatest minds and innovators in building science. Summer Camp was started over 20 years ago by Joe Lstiburek, PhD. PE and his wife Betsy Pettit, FAIA. This “camp” is an all-out building science nerd fest where top researchers and industry leaders present studies and new building products/ systems in an effort to help design and build more energy efficient, sustainable and healthy homes.
We were very excited that our own Ken Gehring was invited to speak and did a presentation called “The Lazy A/C.” Turns out it was so well received that the DOE has asked Ken to present a webinar on November 30th at 11:30 am EST. Click HERE to register for the webinar.
Our friend Matt Risinger, a high performance home builder in Austin and a hot/humid climate building science expert, interviews several experts every year at Summer Camp for his blog. This year Ken’s presentation on the need for dedicated dehumidfication was a hot topic! Watch below to see what Gord Cooke and Wynn White have to say about moisture in homes, dehumidification, and mold.
