What It's About:

A demo at the 2017 HPBZ

To heat and cool a house efficiently and ensure healthy indoor air to breathe, you need an air-tight envelope and proper, carefully controlled ventilation with energy recovery. But the first step, an air-tight envelope, requires a blower-door test to help find the leaks you may have missed. In this presentation, Gord will explain the importance of blower-door testing and Jason will demonstrate, step-by-step using the Building Performance Lab, how to perform one.

What You’ll See and Learn:

Attendees examine the frame built at the 2017 HPBZ

  • Discovering potential problem areas
