Improving Blower Door Air Tightness Readings in Windy Conditions
Tuesday, April 12, 2022
8:30 AM – 9:30 AM
Location: Cumberland 1/2 (Level 3)
TEC (The Energy Conservatory)
In this session Gary Nelson, the inventor of the Minneapolis Blower Door, will be providing results from research he and others have completed on how to improve blower door test results on windy days.
The session will include a summary of best practices to consider based on the wind conditions - and show the data that supports the recommendations.
By attending this session, attendees will:
Be able to describe how wind causes issues for blower door tests
Be aware of research completed in North America and Europe on this topic and the key findings of the research
Be able to implement best practices for test set-up to deliver the best results for air tightness measurements in windy conditions
