Max Sherman is a Senior Scientist at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory with over 30 years of experience in building physics. He has a Ph.D. in physics from Berkeley and is an international expert in air leakage, HVAC, indoor air quality, infiltration, moisture, energy efficiency, and related topics. He is a well-regarded member of ASHRAE having served on the Board of Directors and many technical positions and is currently a Distinguished Lecturer; he is a recipient of ASHRAE's Exceptional Service Award and ASHRAE's highest technical award as a Holladay Distinguished Fellow. He has also been elected a Fellow of the International Society of Indoor Air Quality and Climate (ISIAQ). He represents the United States on International Energy Agency tasks such as the Air Infiltration and Ventilation Center. He serves on national and international committees and editorial boards and does outside consulting.

"In most cases, using the heater ..., 14 Nov 2012 [cached]
"In most cases, using the heater is going to be a better choice from a thermal performance point of view, but fireplaces may be desired as an aesthetic choice," says Max Sherman, a Fellow at the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers, or ASHRAE, and a staff senior scientist/group leader at Lawrence Berkeley Laboratory.
Fact: "Space heaters can be an energy-efficient option in a poorly insulated house when it is acceptable to only heat a small area," says Sherman.
Solution: If your home doesn't come with central heating, a portable space heater may be your best bet for warming up. However, not all space heaters are created equal; do your research before buying.
"High-temperature heaters have a radiant component and feel warm like a fire does," Sherman says.
Fact: Cold feet may actually be a sign that your home isn't weatherized properly, says Sherman. If you feel any drafts along the floor, try to weatherstrip, caulk or seal any cracks.
Solution: Not everyone can install radiant heating under the floors, so keep your toes warm by adding rugs in the bathrooms, kitchen, bedrooms and other areas with tile, marble or hardwood floors, Sherman says.
If you have ceiling fans, remember to switch to winter mode, says Sherman.
They are definitely more energy-efficient than the same-weight blanket and a higher room temperature," says Sherman.
Max Sherman is group leader ..., 11 Feb 2011 [cached]

Max Sherman: Another reason to install a mechanical ventilation system is to remove internal thermal gains (for ventilative cooling).
HE: What are the qualities of a good ventilation system?
Max Sherman: Systems that cause draft or noise will be disabled.
Max Sherman: All new homes should have designed ventilation systems, whether they be mechanical or passive.
Max Sherman: ASHRAE Standard 62 provides minimum ventilation rates for all houses.
Max Sherman: Climate is only one of many issues that factor into the selection of ventilation systems.
Max Sherman: Properly sized exhaust ventilation systems rarely cause any problems, but they do pose a small potential risk that does not exist with the other options. In most cases, the problem is caused by an inappropriate whole-building design rather than an inappropriate choice of ventilation system (or any one other single thing).
