Whole Building Air Leakage: Testing and Building Performance Impacts

Editor(s): Theresa Weston, Keith Nelson, Katherine S. Wissink

Learn more about the benefits of increased air tightness in buildings and recent improvements in processes for measuring whole building air leakage. You’ll get key information about air leakage testing requirements for meeting building codes, a top concern for those who wish to construct new, energy efficient, and durable buildings, and update current ones.

An important reference for design and constriction professionals, this book features 16 peer-reviewed papers written by architects, engineers, testing agencies, code officials, contractors, and building owners from around the world. Topics addressed include:

– Benefits to building air tight buildings – energy saving, emissions reductions
– Methods and techniques for testing whole building air leakage
– Energy modeling
– Testing methods for new and existing buildings: low-rise, high-rise, multizone, single-zone, educational, residential, commercial, specialty use

The papers in this publication were part of a symposium sponsored by ASTM International Committee E06 on Performance of Buildings.
