Learn to quickly and easily check the accuracy of a flow hood (in this case, a TSI AccuBalance) using a duct tightness testing fan (in this case, a Retrotec DucTester 200). If your diagnostic equipment isn't giving you accurate readings, no amount of experience will save you!

Building forensics work shown in detail! Watch as I give a tour of a few of the diagnostics projects we worked on in the past month, especially a battle between two flow hoods that are both past due for calibration, duct tightness testing failures and what to do, and when performance testing professionals should get paid for their work.
