COLUMBUS, OH – The 2000 Affordable Comfort Conference, held here this spring, featured a new model of Tel-Tale House, a plexi-glass model of an average home that allows people to see how gas flows through a house.

The gases are colored to show the way air flows around and over furniture, as well as the areas the gas effects most, and the effects of pressure change.

This new “travel” model Tel-Tale House allows for easy transportation to vendors all over the country. The conference is said to have had record numbers of attendees (up to 1,100) and exhibitors, which increased from the previous year’s numbers by 12%. — Paula R. Liegl
