Programs like the Toronto Green Standard, ENERGY STAR Multifamily and Passive House are encouraging air tightness testing of large buildings and a code requirement has been proposed for as early as 2020. Let’s talk about the process, the equipment, the standards and the training that is required to make testing practical and repeatable. Then, have you heard about the new compelling technology, AeroBarrier, that empowers any designer or builder to achieve Passive levels of air tightness on virtually any project? Case studies of this important technology and the opportunities and challenges it offers will be outlined in this session.
