Airtightness testing has long been used to test high-performance housing. This session reviews why one would invest in airtightness testing for a large building, how the testing is done, how the results are interpreted, and how this information can be used.
As with any mechanical system, the efficacy of ventilation can be compromised by a number of factors, including design flaws, improper installation, inadequate maintenance and operator error—some of which can only be caught through post-installation testing and ongoing monitoring. In this session, we explore strategies for avoiding problems in the first place, as well as for identifying and correcting common problems that may arise after installation and commissioning.
In this panel discussion, we’ll cover the following: educating homeowners about energy efficiency and the house as a system; making a long-term plan for energy upgrades over time; working incrementally to improve a home’s energy efficiency; and insuring that the way is clear for those who follow you.
NESEA advances the adoption of sustainable energy practices in the built environment by cultivating a community where practitioners share, collaborate and learn.
