Advanced Weatherization Diagnostics
Presented against a backdrop of building systems and their interactions, participants learn how to use a manometer and other tools to evaluate chimney performance, worst case pressure balancing in the combustion compliance zone, and pressure imbalances of forced air systems. Detecting air leakage paths through zonal testing and duct leakage through pressure pan testing will also be covered. The course will utilize both lecture and hands-on activities. This is a competency-based course where certificates of completion will be offered to those who successfully complete the written and lab tests. This course is approximately 60% presentation/classroom exercises and 40% hands-on application, equipment training, and diagnostics in the lab. This course requires participant participation in classroom and lab exercises as well as a passing grade (70% or above) in both of the end-of-course exams: written and lab. Course hours: 22.
