A house is a complex assembly of interacting components. An improvement to one part of a home can sometimes cause unanticipated effects on another part of the house system. This workshop will explain and illustrate (through The House of Pressure) how to predict and / or diagnose these effects, primarily in order to prevent negative consequences. No prior technical knowledge is needed.
By attending this session, participants will
1. Examine the driving forces that impact moisture, heat and air movement in buildings
2. Learn some of the ways that interactions can cause performance problems
3. Understand the concept of home performance and the role of diagnostics in verifying that expected results are achieved
