Watch the “5 Priority Air Sealing Locations for New Homes” Webinar Recording

August 17th, 2018 - Posted by emma@resnet.us under RESNET News

RESNET has partnered with NAIMA/Insulation Institute to host a free webinar on the findings from the Insulation Institute’s research to quantify significant air leakage from five specific locations and estimated their potential contribution to ACH50 reductions. The research report can be downloaded at Five Priority Air Sealing Locations for New Homes.

Certified RESNET HERS Raters play a central role in helping builders transition to new, more stringent residential building energy code requirements, like the 2012 or 2015 International Energy Conservation Code (IECC), which require blower door testing. Some builders have reported difficulty meeting new air tightness requirements such as 3 ACH50. Proper air sealing is critical to meeting these new air tightness targets and there are strategic locations that should be a focus for builders.

The free webinar, hosted by Charlie Haack (Director, Technical Services, NAIMA/Insulation Institute) took place on August 16, 2018, but if you missed it you aren’t out of luck! Learn where these five locations are and how raters can help builders target these locations to boost air tightness levels.
