Whole Building Air Tightness Testing Course
ABEC South Education and Events

ABEC South, in conjunction with Red River College, presents a two-day, hands on course in whole building air tightness testing. 

Large Building Airtightness Testing Course
Increasing air tightness in a building is now widely recognized as one of the most influential factors affecting the building’s performance in terms of energy use, comfort, indoor air quality, durability and even noise transmission. Even though airtightness testing of residential houses is quite common, airtightness testing of commercial buildings is only now starting to grow. Testing equipment is now evolving to measure a larger range of commercial building types; however, since this type of testing is still relatively new to the United States and Canada, there remains very few qualified personnel able to perform these tests to specific standards.

 Learning objectives:
  1. Differences between residential and commercial tests
  2. Building science and driving forces of air leakage
  3. Testing standards and code requirements
  4. Test considerations and planning
  5. Required materials and equipment
  6. First-hand experience with setup and use of blower door equipment
  7. Trouble-shooting common problems encountered during testing
The workshop concludes with a full live test. The course is provided through partnership of Red River College (RRC) and Alberta Building Envelope Council (ABEC) South.
