Thursday, January 12 | 12:30 - 1:00 PM
Event Type: Live Demo
Location: High Performance Building Zone - West Concourse, Exhibit Hall WD, Booth W6157
What It's About:This demo will focus on the incredible opportunity remodeling contractors have in efficiency upgrades and the priorities for integrating high-performance systems into an existing home. The use of four tools critical to high-performance remodeling—the blower door, the duct blaster, the CO monitor and the thermal-imaging camera—will be shown, and our experts will demonstrate and discuss how the use of these tools helps determine the priorities for each home.
What You’ll See and Learn:
Through a series of live, interactive construction demonstrations, nationally acclaimed instructors and building science experts Matt Whitbeck, Kevin Ireton and Gord Cooke will take you through the practical, real-world side of high performance building and show you the latest methods and techniques for building various components into your homes.
And to complement these demonstrations, we've added a Building Performance Lab to the HPBZ in 2017. A small, finished model home with various cut-aways and see-through sections, the Lab gives you an inside-look at how high performance wall systems, floors, HVAC, insulation and more are constructed and finished, and how the products and techniques discussed and shown on our Demo Stage translate to a real structure.
