A crack team of blower door experts will demonstrate how to perform a blower door test on a large, leaky building. Discussion will include ganging multiple blower doors together to test larger and leakier buildings, advanced blower door techniques and terminology, using the blower door to do air-sealing triage on buildings where it?s hard to know where to start, and other related topics and questions that participants bring to the conversation.

Building Science for Carpenters is an ongoing series co-sponsored by the Studio for High-Performance Design & Construction (StudioHPDC), the Builders and Remodelers Association of Greater Boston (BRAGB), and Passive House Massachusetts (PHMA).
