This workshop covers the essentials of the airtightness testing systems and their software. Understanding how to use a blower door is only the first step. We will concentrate on troubleshooting and understanding what the system is doing and knowing how to use the software to its maximum potential.
The course is designed to take professionals new to the practice of airtightness testing and make them competent in basic tests for houses and simple structures. It will also provide in-depth material on the finer techniques of testing for those with prior experience.
This course will provide an understanding of how ATTMA standards, regulatory standards, and project specifications for airtightness are applied in New Zealand and Australia. We will better understand how test results should be represented and compared, and how they relate to physical processes in real buildings.
The course will culminate on the last day in an open-book knowledge and theory exam, as well as an assessment of competency in using a common blower door system from either The Energy Conservatory or Retrotec.

You will be provided with an introduction to the science of coupled heat and moisture analysis and material properties. Participants will learn what hygrothermal modelling and WUFI® software is capable of, become confident to request an analysis from a practitioner and will become able to understand the results of modelling.More Information
You will be provided with competency in one dimensional hygrothermal modelling of building elements such as walls, roofs and floors using WUFI® Pro. Participants will become able to set up and run a WUFI® 1D simulation of a building element. They will also become able to interpret and present the results of the simulation.More Information
You will be provided with competency in two-dimensional hygrothermal modelling of building structures using WUFI® 2D. Participants will become able to set up and run a WUFI® 2D simulation of a building structure such as a wall-floor connection. They will also be able to interpret and present the results of the simulation.More Information
