A demo at the 2017 HPBZWhat It's About:

How do you ensure healthy and safe indoor environments in high performance homes when your clients don’t want to open windows all year long? It starts with selecting low-VOC building materials and assembling them correctly. Blower-door testing is also key to knowing how tight the house is and what that means for combustion safety and air-quality control. Learn how to develop a plan for providing sufficient air for combustion appliances and for occupants in an energy efficient manner.
