Seattle Passive House – The Blower Door huffed and it puffed…

…but did Dan’s house reach 0.6ACH @ 50 pascal?  The answer is a resounding “maybe”.  Between needing a smaller cowl for the blower door (a temporary cardboard one was crafted) and a question of volume it was most likely between 0.5 and 0.7ACH & 50 pascal – definitely in the ballpark.

Dan was really impressed with the Siga tape – thank you Siga!  Albert Rooks of the Small Planet Workshop will be a US distributor for it in the future.

I will post an update with details as they are available.

  1. It was a really exciting day! It only shows what a “construction nerd” that I am if I find a blower door test exciting… But airsealing is going to continue to be one of the major challenges in high performance building. To control costs, methods need to be proven as simple, reliable, and lasting.
