Today we did our first (Blower Door Test) Air leak test and passed with 0.27 ACH@50

0.27 ACH@50 Air leak test for Reno Coach Passive House Toronto

Wow First test and passed with over 50% better than the German  Passive House standard of 0.60 ACH@50
Our reading came in at 0.27 ACH @ 50. On the other side with positive pressure we came in at 0.07 ACH@50 Which tells us some of the tapped Joints where  opening up under negative pressure.
We sure have to give the German Passive house windows and Doors a lot of credit and the detailed work by our crew for insulating ( by Foam Works )  and air sealing all the joints.
