New ANSI Standard for Blower Door Testing in the US

Shawna HendersonApril 29, 2016

Mark Butler posted this article by Rick Karg (Residential Energy Dynamics) in the RESNET group on LinkedIn -- I thought it might be helpful to spread it around a little further.

Here's the article:

ANSI 380 -2016

Rick notes that there are some changes and improvements -- most sound positive, clarification and simplification of procedures and protocols. There's a nice set of definitions to take the guesswork out of your day.

Also a recommendation to take the standard with you in your toolkit. When I was doing blower door tests as my main gig, I had the Canadian version of this with me. Helpful for those goofy challenges.

Hope this helps!
