Why do we need to prepare the building for airtightness testing? What does this involve? Are there guidance and tips?
Potential heat loss due to air leakage through an enclosure with moderate or poor airtightness has a significant and measurable impact on the required heating energy for a building. An enclosure that has good or exceptional airtightness can provide major energy savings.
Building codes require that building enclosures include continuous air barriers; the integrity of those air barriers can only be measured with an airtightness test. Airtightness testing is typically carried out using blower fans to pressurize and depressurize the building to measure the overall building airtightness.

This seminar is part of the “Building Smart by Designing for People” series that focuses on creating healthy, safe, adaptive and enriching living environment for building occupants.
How do People Respond to Indoor Environmental Quality (IEQ)?
IEQ is an integrated study of an occupant’s response to the built environment. That being one’s ability to sense and perceive the quality of air, thermal, sound, light, odors and vibrations. It also includes a study of imperceptible elements such as asbestos, radon or CO. Through the efforts of academia and governments, and programs such as the Well Building Standard, Living Building Challenge, Active House and Passive House, IEQ is being positioned as a leading subject matter due to associated impacts on the health and wellness of people.
This seminar will provide participants with a basic understanding of how people sense, perceive and respond to indoor spaces and why this influences such things as learning, productivity and health.
