Full Description:

Summer Camp is next week and it had us thinking about shows we have done with some Summer Camp alumni. One of the best was a show we did back in 2008 with Andy Ask, PE and Dietrich Weyel, PhD. Andy has forgotten more about building science than most people know. We talk a good bit in this show about Andy’s article on the things that HARM our buildings and how to deal with them. For a full copy of his article go to the IAQ Radio Resources page under documents.

Andrew C. Ask, B.S. (English). J.D., P.E. is a mechanical consulting engineer who specializes in the retrofit and remediation of HVAC systems in buildings. Early in his career he worked in the Great Lakes region and spent time in construction and installing air conditioning in many types of buildings. The past 20 years have been devoted to solving humidity problems and replacing HVAC components in Southwest Florida buildings. Andy has five decades of experience solving building science problems and helping people live in healthier environments.

Dietrich Weyel, PhD was our Technical Director on IAQ Radio for eight years. He is semi-retired and lives in the Pittsburgh area. Dr. Weyel had a long career in industrial hygiene including many years helping to solve indoor air quality issues.
