The seminar will provide an introduction to building enclosure testing concepts. This will include discussions of environmental safety enclosures, such as air barrier enclosures, and review of the various testing methods that are currently being specified. The basic operation of the blower door equipment and their respective applications and features will be presented.

The NEBB Procedural Standard for Building Enclosure Testing will be reviewed with emphasis on the requirements for firm certification, certified professional certification, instrumentation and reporting requirements, and testing procedural requirements. Detailed presentations will be provided for the two primary performance tests: Blower Door and HVAC Utilization Tests. In addition to the presentations addressing the procedural requirements of these tests, hands-on demonstrations on operating the blower door and thermal imaging cameras will be performed. The seminar will emphasize the testing procedures, reporting requirements and the evaluation of test results.
