Researchers are looking for builders willing to volunteer to take part in a field study that will measure moisture, temperature, and humidity inside high-performance walls in moderate and cold climates.
The Home Innovation Research Labs, a subsidiary of the National Association of Home Builders (NAHBNational Association of Home Builders, which awards a Model Green Home Certification.), has put out a call for builders of new homes — additions and remodels aren't included in the study — who would allow wireless sensors to be installed inside wall cavities. The sensors — as many as ten in a single building — will transmit the data to a remote server.
