What It's About:

A demo at the 2017 HPBZOptimal performance and livability requires an understanding of the house as a system—the building envelope, the technologies and materials, the HVAC system, and even the occupants are all interconnected and must work together for maximum comfort, health and durability. We’ll highlight some of the common mistakes builders make with design, ductwork, indoor air quality, smart home features, and more.

What You’ll See and Learn:

Attendees examine the frame built at the 2017 HPBZ

  • The high cost of unsealed, uninsulated ductwork
  • How dirty, unhealthy air gets into a house
  • How our technology often outsmarts us or gets underused
