August 2014

Stay Cool!

Late July and August are the “dog days” of summer. I’m not one to complain about the heat, as I would much rather dress lighter, have a cool drink and relax as best I can than suffer the freezing conditions we have weathered the last couple of winters in western Pennsylvania. When things get really hot, I can always go swimming somewhere. Living seven years in South Florida did a lot to cement that preference. And, while I understand the traditions that surround summer vacations, and the family dynamics and logistics that make summer vacations necessary, I have always advocated for short vacations in tropical places in the middle of cold winters, just for the psychological lift they provide.

One goal of living green is to remain comfortable, productive and content wherever we are under any circumstances, any time of year, in the most cost effective and environmentally sound ways possible. Since most of us can’t vacation all the time, that means starting with our homes. The priorities we assign these goals will vary with whether we are elderly, retired and spend most of our time in our homes, or if we are active, leading more transient lifestyles and rarely find ourselves there. In either case, this month I offer some tips on how to stay cool and enjoy our homes on those hot summer days and nights, starting with non-mechanical, passive approaches to comfort.

My strategies start with assessing our homes’ strengths and weaknesses when it comes to keeping us comfortable, beginning with our yards if we have one. If you live in a “light mass” framed home that does not have good natural ventilation, you may find the interior of the home heats up quickly, in step with outside temperatures. By the end of the day, after sunset, it is quite common to have outside spaces that are much cooler than the inside of the home, especially if they benefit from the breeze. I have fond memories of sleeping outside on a second floor exterior porch. It was a popular place for my siblings and me as it was much cooler than inside, we were literally in the treetops, and the night sky treated us to the moon and stars. Summer rains were a special treat. Simply stated it was great fun, lasting until it became too cold to be out there. Air conditioning has largely put an end to spending time outdoors any time of the day, and porches are no longer the social focus they used to be in our neighborhoods, but we still talk about that porch.

‘Sure glad they are keeping the sleeping porch!

If being outside comfortably and safely is not an option, we need to take stock of our homes and what we can do to make them comfortable in the summer. Clearly, newer homes with high performance Low-E windows and fully insulated walls and roofs will need the following ideas less than an older home that have not been weatherized. Ideas include:

• Landscaping our homes for energy efficiency. We have written about the role of shade trees, trellis and other natural approaches to providing shade. These strategies are well documented in numerous sources, and carry the added potential for providing food.
• Exterior shading devices for windows. These are typically made of shading screen material stretched over 1”x2” slats, or the equivalent. The shade screens are then attached to the exterior of the window. Mounting shade screens on the outside is the most effective way to keep the house cool, but is only practical if the windows are double hung or sliders; it will not work with outward acting casement or awning windows. They are best installed in late spring, when the home begins to be uncomfortable, and removed in the fall when the heating equipment begins to cycle. 84 Lumber carries everything you need to build these simple devices. Contact us if you need assistance.
• Permanent architectural shading elements. These are permanent additions to the home in the form of tuned overhangs; horizontal soffits or other architectural modifications designed to keep direct solar gain out of the home. Designing permanent solar shading devices requires knowledge of solar geometry and an understanding of how to optimize their application for each orientation. Effectively shading south windows is different than what is needed to shade east and west windows. If your home does not have these features you may need the assistance of a designer or help from a GreenEdge Supply staff person.
• Interior shades, blinds and curtains. Once the sun’s heat enters the home, interior shades and curtains are compromised, but are better than unimpeded direct solar gain. Priority should be given to shading the west and south windows. Keep them closed during the day, especially if rooms aren’t occupied and you don’t need the natural daylight.
• Open and close the home with the rhythm of the day. It seems counter-intuitive, but it may be best to keep a home’s doors and windows closed during hot, humid days, and open as much as possible during the evening and night. Your home’s interior temperatures will vary depending on whether your home is light mass, wood frame construction or a heavier brick or masonry structure. The quality of the windows and the amount of insulation will also influence whether this strategy is effective.
• Be conscious of interior heat sources and minimize their impact on comfort. Lights, computers, televisions, office equipment, ranges, ovens and major appliances all generate heat. Taking shorter, warm showers and venting bathrooms effectively reduces interior heat and humidity. Doing cold water washes also helps. Cooking outdoors, in the tradition of homes with summer kitchens, is a very effective way to keep your home cooler. Enjoying meals outside adds to the celebration of summer, especially when we invite family, friends and neighbors.

Once you have evaluated the potential for passively cooling your home you can move on to low-tech mechanical cooling devices. The first thing to consider is how much cooling is needed, when is it needed and what is the greenest, least expensive way to provide comfort. It’s important to remember that it is you who needs cooling, not every space in the house. Some cost effective ideas include:

• Personal fans. These are very small, portable, personal cooling devices designed for small task, close proximity cooling. Many are battery powered, but some can operate off regular electricity or your computer’s USB port. Small, personal coolers can be the difference between comfort and sweating through the day at your desk.
• Small area fans. Freestanding floor models are designed to cool in near proximity, no matter the activity. They can oscillate to cool multiple occupants in a space and have multiple speeds. They are light and portable enough to be moved from room to room; a good choice for simple cooling needs.
• Ceiling fans. Ceiling fans and combination fan and light fixtures are popular home cooling choices. Most feature multiple fan speeds, and have the option to operate the light and fan separately. I cool my house exclusively with Energy Star rated ceiling fans and am very satisfied with their performance. Like all fans, they cool the occupant and not the room, so they should be off when the room is not occupied.
• Room air conditioners. Most room air conditioners are designed to fit in windows. However, several manufactures now make free standing room air conditioners that do not need to be installed in a window. Each should be sized correctly for the room in question, and should be Energy Star rated to ensure efficient operation. Many people choose to cool their bedrooms to ensure a good night’s sleep. Additional rooms can be cooled as needed. Remember, room air conditioners cool a room quickly, and therefore should not be operated when the room is unoccupied.

Lastly, if we choose to cool our homes with conventional whole house air conditioning systems we need to be sure they are sized, installed and maintained properly. A comfortable house begins with mechanical cooling systems that don’t work any harder or longer than necessary. In addition to the passive strategies listed above I suggest the following.

• Make sure your attic is cool. The cooler your attic, the cooler your home. This is done using effective ridge and soffit vents that are clear, unencumbered and sized properly. 84 Lumber carries these items and can help with installation if your home doesn’t have them.
• Consider attic fans, or whole house fans. 84 Lumber and GreenEdge Supply carry a full line of attic fans, including some that are solar powered. These are very effective at keeping your attic cool. Whole house fans located in the attic can be configured to ventilate the entire home.
• Be sure your conventional air conditioning equipment is sized properly and maintained regularly to ensure the maximum efficiency. The indoor and outdoor components should be inspected at least once a year to be sure they are clean, fully charged and unobstructed. Filters should be cleaned on an as needed basis, not seasonally, but in response to when they become soiled. The main air-conditioning system components must be serviced professionally, but homeowners can change filters easily. Consider maintenance plans supported by factory warranties. Many residential AC companies will negotiate the fees associated with your system’s maintenance.
• Use your AC only as needed, when needed. Properly sized, well-maintained AC systems can cool a home quickly and efficiently. Programmable thermostats should have “On, Off, Vent, Cool” settings with setback and / or integral timers to enable scheduling when the AC is on and at what temperature over the course of a day. Set the interior temperature as high as tolerable and use AC only when necessary to save the most energy and money.

Conventional AC systems give us the luxury of comfort on demand. They are not as green as passive cooling options, but may be a medical necessity for the elderly or others whose health requires reliable temperature and humidity control. However, they cannot provide the tranquility, beauty and memories that come from one summer night on the porch, floating in the tree tops, breathing fresh air, watching the moon and stars come out after the rain ends. It doesn’t get any greener than that.

Weekly Tips

Your walls can help you breathe easier

August 11, 2014

Over the years there have been many innovations in the building industry designed to improve indoor air quality. Chief among these has been an industry trend to reduce or eliminate volatile organic compounds in common building materials such as paints, sealers and adhesives. A better understanding of how to prevent mold and mildew has also contributed to superior indoor environmental quality in all types of buildings.

Now Certainteed has introduced a drywall product that does both. Certainteed’s AirRenew drywall meets ISO 16000-23 Indoor Air Standard for reducing formaldehyde and other aldehyde compounds by absorbing and converting them to inert compounds. Once they are captured in the board, they cannot be released back into the air. The M2Tech® technology improves indoor air quality by providing enhanced moisture and mold resistance. Tests conducted by Cornerstone Laboratories LLC indicate AirRenew continues to effectively clean air even when finished with multiple coats of water based acrylic or epoxy paints and breathable wallpaper. The ability for Air Renew to absorb aldehydes and minimize mold growth is estimated to last for seventy- five years.

Materials like AirRenew drywall do not excuse us from eliminating or minimizing the number of VOCs in our homes. Nor should we let mold and mildew problems go untreated. Green Edge Supply carries a full line of low VOC / no VOC building products and cleaning supplies and can help you with any of your healthy home questions.
