AIR SEALING: GOT AIR???
The Importance of Building Science and Systems
Monday, November 26, 2012
On the Rise Bakery – Richmond, VT
“How tight is too tight?” Is it important for buildings to “breathe”?
At this topic meeting, we will try to look at these questions in a new way, which hopefully will provide some real answers to help us to make our houses more comfortable, more efficient, and easier to heat – without compromising air quality. The presentation will cover:
- The value of building science and testing, what you need to know is pretty basic.
- The importance of controlling the airflow through the envelope as much as possible.
- Basic air-sealing specifics
- Typical (and perhaps atypical) thermal by-passes
- Health and safety consequences of this kind of work — both for the building and the occupants.
- Vermont Energy Code
Free – Open to the Public Presentation & Discussion
