Tools of the Trade for Building Diagnostics

How do you go about diagnosing a sick, leaky, dripping, humid, dry, or uncomfortable building? Join Kohta Ueno for an overview of the tools that he commonly uses in his diagnostic work on building enclosures and mechanical systems. We’ll learn about everything from the air side (blower doors, airflow meters, flow sensors) to the moisture side (spray testing, moisture meters, hygrometers) to the heat side (infrared cameras, temperature meters) – instruments that measure things that are not easily visualized. Multiple case studies will demonstrate how these measurements provide actionable results in solving problems.
