Multifamily building blower door testing
Dive into the differences of compartmentalization versus whole building blower door testing and how to perform these types of tests and the value of each. Focusing on whole building testing, we will provide ample instruction on how and why to perform these tests as well as essential equipment and software. There will be an overview of regional standards and examples of testing we have completed including lessons learned.

Getting the most out of your manometer
In building science, a lot of what we measure is invisible and much of it is related to pressure and flow. Most of us do blower door or duct leakage testing or both, but there are many other important things we can be measuring using our manometers that can help us figure out what is going on in a home. This session will give you an introduction into measuring draft, CAZ depressurization, room pressures, zone pressure diagnostics, pressure pans, static pressures on an air handler and tools for long term data logging of pressures.
