Energy Beastiary & Glossary
by NEB Staff
Ah, what strange and curious creatures roam untamed
in the interstitial spaces wreaking havoc on our heating
bills and the unwary contractor! Anyway you cut it,
energy is a tough nut. With the exception of a few
wavelengths of visible light, it's mostly invisible, very
slippery, hard to measure, and always rising in price.
And the jargon doesn't make it any easier. But don't be
intimidated. The next time you're called upon to wrestle
the wily Btus, just keep this guide close by. In no time,
you'll be running circles around convective loops and
have anomalies eating out of your hand. Study well.
