This session will provide strategies for achieving more effective air sealing results using a variety of methods discussed in Part 1. Practical use of targeted air sealing, series leakage testing, zone testing, and blower door-assisted infrared scanning will be covered. Strategies for improving infrared scans on mild temperature days, the effect of air-sealing on pressure balance in rooms, and addressing interactive zones will be discussed.
