Corbett presented for Broan-Nutone and Fantech at the International Builders Show (IBS) 2018 in Orlando, and in case you weren't there, here it is! Learn all about why builders, manufacturers, contractors, insulators, HVAC techs, and others in the construction industry are starting to care about, and act upon, the metrics that come from home performance testing.
Thanks as always to the sponsors who are leading the charge in making measured performance mainstream with 'Home Diagnosis' coming to TV screens soon!
I'd love to show you this, but my client has asked that I take this video down while they try to reconcile with the installer. Fingers crossed everybody, and sorry to be a tease.
Now that Corbett's finished building the #DryVault, a super-sophisticated, dessicant-dehumidified tool shed, it's time to whip out the Retrotec 5000 and FLIR T660 to see exactly how well he did. For more about any of the building or testing products used, visit:
Welcome to the inaugural tour of the real life Building Performance Workshop on our high performance homestead in Atlanta, Georgia! From the translucent walls and roof to the airtight, insulated and dessicant dehumidified Dry Vault inside it, everything here is about making the invisible dynamics of building performance visible. Stay tuned for the blower door test, infrared thermal scan, air quality testing, and much more when the Workshop is built!
