Buildings; Air Flow
This project is intended to answer the following four questions regarding residential building air leakage testing and whole-house mechanical ventilation requirements as stated in the 2016 Supplement 1 changes to the 5th Edition (2014) Florida Energy Conservation Code, and now continued in the 6th Edition (2017) Code: - Is the new requirement to test residential air leakage being followed? - Who is providing the air leakage testing? - Are accurate air leakage rate test values being reported? - Is whole-house mechanical ventilation being installed in applicable cases?
