Diagnostics & Audits
2018 HPC National Conference Session
This program introduces the pressurized theatrical fog method for quality assurance and diagnostics in building enclosures. It covers several ways that qualitative fog testing can be performed, including working from the inside or outside, by filling pressurized volumes or washing the surfaces of pressurized or depressurized enclosure surfaces, and how both ends of air leakage paths can be located, a unique advantage of this protocol. It also provides a detailed explanation of how fog testing can be used as an on-going quality assurance process during the construction phase of high-performance building envelopes.
This program also explains how this low-cost, non-destructive method can be used at any time of the year to diagnose air leakage problems in existing buildings.
