(images: Sun International)More than a hundred blankets will keep Alexandra residents warm this winter, handed over by representatives of Sun International’s Maslow Hotel and Miss South Africa Liesl Laurie.They handed over the blankets in the main hall of the Alexandra Health Centre and University Clinic, in the Johannesburg township. The event formed part of the Maslow Hotel’s winter initiative aimed at helping residents of some of Gauteng’s most disadvantaged communities through the cold weeks ahead.“The Alex clinic went out on a drive to try and get corporate South Africa to try and support us,” said the chief executive of the health centre, Lebane Maluleke, “and we got a very positive response to our drive. Today here we received 100 blankets but we intend to do more with the help of the Maslow Hotel in July.“For us to get the economic issues right in the country we need to understand that government will not be able to deal with all the problems. We need to all play our parts, be it in the NGO space or in the corporate world. We all need to do our part in uplifting the community.”The hotel’s initiative includes a mobile soup kitchen that will serve hot soup around town from 1 until 31 July, effectively covering what should be the coldest month of winter. In the form of a food trailer, the soup kitchen will be doing its rounds through a selected number of townships such as Alexandra, supplying warm meals to those in need.Laurie will hand out soup at some of the pop-up kitchen’s scheduled stops this month: “This drive is a great example of how small gestures can make such a big difference in the lives of the community,” she said. “I can’t wait to share Chef Millar’s delicious soup with those in need.”Maslow general manager Johan Scheepers added: “As part of our continued commitment to our corporate social investment projects, we hope our pop-up soup kitchen will add some cheer and warmth to those most affected by the cold.”Johan Scheepers, Liesl Laurie and Lebane Maluleke were present to hand over the blankets and shed a bit more light on the relationship between the Hotel group and the people of Alexandra.A WARM EMBRACEThe winter chill poses a very real threat to the young, the elderly and the sick, and a bit of warmth may mean the difference between improving their health and seeing it worsen when temperatures drop.It was with this in mind that the Maslow collective took to handing out blankets, a task that they made short work of with the aid of a recently crowned Miss South Africa.“It’s such an honour and a privilege for me to be here this morning with amazing sponsors like Sun International. I’m blessed to be able to help other people,” Laurie said, addressing some 200 people in the hall.Quoting Robert G Ingersoll, the American leader and free thinker, she said: “You only rise by lifting others… I know that by helping my communities and the people where I come from that I will grow, and that’s my encouragement to each and every one of you here today.“You can help someone with a very little bit, whether it be your time, whether it be just giving them that plate of food, the little that you have can grow and bless others.”last_img read more

Is the Pretty Good House the Next Big Thing?

first_imgBut then I took a step back and asked the question, Whose Pretty Good House are we talking about here? Since I’m on the training, consulting, and design side of this business, my Pretty Good House would probably look different from the Pretty Good House of someone who’s in the trenches building custom homes. The disparity would be even greater between my Pretty Good Home and that of a production home builder.Since we’re talking about the Pretty Good House—not the Damn Good House—I’m going to take the view that even production builders should be able to achieve it…if they really want to and they work hard to do it. Because it’s voluntary, it should be better than the worst house allowed by law, i.e., the code-built house. With the code getting so much tougher in the 2012 and 2015 IECC versions, that latter objective gets harder and harder to do, but we have to start somewhere. That’s a pretty good startI’m sure I didn’t get everything related to those topics in there that should be there. I’ll post again about this topic and cover the items below that didn’t make it into this already-long article.In Part 2, I’ll cover:Pretty Good Water ConservationPretty Good VerificationPretty Good Homeowner PackagePretty Good PerformanceI’m sure I’ll have some clarifications and refinements based on the comments you’re going to leave me, too, so go ahead and start typing now. The essential elementsTo keep this simple, we need to start with the essentials. I’m a fan of performance goals because they allow the project team to figure out how best to meet the goals, but some of the items are best left as prescriptive (e.g., no atmospheric combustion inside).Pretty Good Design. The Pretty Good House must begin with design. This is where you have to start to make sure that the building envelope, water management systems, and mechanical systems get integrated properly. By the end of the design phase, everyone would know where all the ducts, wires, plumbing pipes, insulation, air barrier, and flashing details are going to go, what materials they’ll use, and when they’re getting done.Design review. All the critical team members review the plan and strive to minimize surprises once construction starts.Complete HVAC design. Before the foundation is built, the HVAC contractor knows what the heating and cooling loads are, which systems (including ventilation) are going in, and all of the distribution details.Projected Home Energy Rating. Along with the HVAC design, a HERS rater works up the preliminary HERS rating. I think the target should be 70 or lower for a Pretty Good House.Pretty Good Building Envelope and Weather Shell. In this part of the Pretty Good House, it’s going to be hard to improve upon the 2012 IECC, so I’d go with their insulation and air-sealing levels. The building envelope also must be complete and continuous, of course. The insulation and air barrier must be in contact with each other and use materials that will stay in contact with each other for the life of the assemblies (i.e.,no batt insulation in framed floors).Other envelope and shell goodies:Blower Door testing. 0.25 cfm per square foot of building envelope (or 3 air changes per hour, if you must) at 50 Pascals. Joe Lstiburek says this is a pretty good air leakage threshold for homes.Grade I insulation installation. No exceptions. It’s got to be done right. ENERGY STAR may have backed off of this a bit since I wrote about it earlier, but that doesn’t mean we should.Reduced thermal bridging. Foam board or rigid mineral wool on the outside, structural insulated panels, insulated concrete forms, double wall construction, Mooney Walls, or some other method that would produce a nice, uniform color when someone looks at the house with a thermal imaging camera.No big or medium holes in air barrier or insulation. The Blower Door test will catch the air barrier holes. Thermal imaging and third-party inspections will catch the insulation holes. Some places to watch out for are attic access holes, slab perimeters (must be insulated for CZ 3), and ceiling insulation above exterior walls.Pretty Good Water management. I like ENERGY STAR’s approach here. Create a checklist that the home builder is responsible for completing. The rater collects it, but the builder is the one who signs it and is responsible if something goes wrong.I’m thinking that the shift in the IECC from R-values to U-values, as Wes Riley pointed out in the second Pretty Good House article by Michael Maines, can lead to better ways to view the house. In fact, since size matters so much, let’s go even further and look at levels of performance based on the UA values, with a table showing the acceptable numbers for each climate zone. That would complete the transition from materials to assemblies to enclosures. I also like the Passive House approach regarding thermal bridging.Pretty Good Mechanical Systems. As I said above, each Pretty Good House would get complete HVAC design up front. I’d also want:> 1000 square feet per ton of air conditioning capacity. This is my rule of thumb, and I think it would be a nice way to make it easy to check. If it were my house, I’d want no less than 2000 sf/ton, but remember, this is the Pretty Good House, and that’s a pretty good benchmark.All distribution inside the envelope. No ducts in attics especially. Crawl spaces get encapsulated. With good design, doing this isn’t a problem.No atmospheric combustion. If it’s not electric (e.g., heat pump), it’s got to be sealed combustion. Period. You can’t call it a pretty good house otherwise. If you’re in a hot climate where sealed combustion heating equipment is too expensive, I’d say combustion equipment doesn’t make sense. Use a heat pump. They’re actually good for more climates than you might think, especially when combined with a hydronic coil for supplemental heat.Mechanical ventilation. Since the house is going to be tight, it must have a mechanical ventilation system. It will be able to meet the ASHRAE 62.2 requirements with a controller that allows the homeowner to dial it back when necessary. I love the Pretty Good House concept! The folks up in Maine who’ve been developing this idea in their monthly green building discussion group (Steve’s Garage) have struck a chord with a lot of us who design, build, or verify green homes. The growing complexity and expense of green building and energy programs has led to growing frustration. Wouldn’t it be great if we could list just a handful of measures that a home builder has to achieve to build a Pretty Good House?Especially since ENERGY STAR Version 3 started kicking in last year, I’ve been thinking about new ways to achieve good results, and the Pretty Good House idea is a great way to get this going. One way I’ve proposed to simplify HVAC requirements, for example, is with a new benchmark for sizing air conditioning systems. Also, even in the performance path for verification, the prescriptive requirements have become a burden. So where can we take this idea?center_img Allison Bailes of Decatur, Georgia, is a RESNET-accredited energy consultant, trainer, and the author of the Energy Vanguard blog. What’s the question again?Even after just seeing the title of the first Pretty Good House article, I started thinking about what a Pretty Good House might look like. Since I’m in International Energy Conservation Code (IECC) Climate Zone 3, my thoughts naturally gravitated to elements that would work well in our mixed-humid climate. I began imagining lists of building envelope details, HVAC system specifications, distribution system requirements, mechanical ventilation, ceiling fans… RELATED ARTICLES The Pretty Good HouseThe Pretty Good House, Part 2Martin’s Pretty Good House ManifestoThe Pretty Good House: A Better Building Standard?Regional Variations on the ‘Pretty Good House’Is the Pretty Good House the Next Big Thing?
