Performance Testing with Obsessed Garage, Ep1-5

Corbett Lunsford

Corbett traveled from Atlanta to Orlando to help Matt Moreman of Obsessed Garage get all the spec's on his 4000 sq. ft. house. See the blower door setup, 3D modeling, kitchen exhaust hood pressure testing, and inspection of the home's exterior and attic in preparation for the Vitals Checkup package:

Next, we run the blower door depressurization and pressurization tests, and the beginnings of infrared thermography and zonal pressure testing across the house:

We continue going beyond the traditional 'energy audit' performance testing to create a prioritized map of home improvements to control comfort, moisture, air quality, energy efficiency and durability:

Time for home improvement conclusions and recommendations for Matt's family, including air sealing, duct sealing, and equalization of heat flow in rooms of the house:

As Matt plans for his future headquarters for Obsessed Garage, Corbett starts the energy consulting process for controlling all the invisible dynamics of the building: heat bleed, airflow and pressure, moisture, and air quality:
