"I just wanted to commend you for putting such a fantastic site together! My undergrad was in electrical engineering, so I got very little in the way of thermodynamics; going through the pages on this site has been a fun refresher course, much more entertaining than my physics class ever was. I had always wondered why there wasn't more discussion on designing a residence to optimize for sustainability and human comfort on the whole rather than on a piecemeal system-by-system basis. But after coming across your site I realize there is, hooray! May you continue to publish more of your really cool new articles and wake the industry up!"
A. Baumgartner
