There is no such thing as a house that is too tight or a house that is airtight. Every house leaks, and leaky homes are hard to heat and cool. In this presentation, Gord will explain the importance of blower door testing while Jason shows you, step-by-step, how to perform one. You’ll learn how to measure a building’s leakage rate and how to identify and solve problem areas.
