Inspection Call - Air Leakage Aspire 6/3/2011
Hi Guys,

I have a call to inspect for air leakage specifically around windows in a house that were installed a few years ago.

I will go to the site tomorrow morning at about 7 am and will expect to get a d-t of 8-9C. First, I am not too confident to go a inspection in summer with this d-t and where the exterior walls are expected to face solar loading by the time i am there.

I am thinking about getting there and doing the survey and if I cant see good anomalies, I will push it for winter.

Do you think adjusting level and span will probably help in these circumstances.

I just want to same on travel time and expenses if its not worth going.

Thanks

It will be difficult to get decent results without the house being under negative pressure. You may be able to achieve this using exhaust fans in the house along with the clothes dryer. A blower door would work best.
