Part 8 of 10 - March 14, 2023 (8am - 12pm) Testing your work is imperative to meet or exceed performance targets and to ensure a feedback loop is in place for continual process improvements. A bulk of the air leaks that are in most homes are found in the ceiling assembly. In this this 4-hour course, Gavin Healy of Balance Point Home Performance reviews how to establish continuity in the ceiling air barrier of existing homes where the drywall is interrupted.
The course material relies on blower door and infrared diagnostics to identify typical existing performance issues. Real world examples are illustrated to convey how to address a variety of complex continuity issues. Finally, the class will cover the magnitude of opportunity available for reducing the air exchange rate by creating continuity in the ceiling assembly.
