TEC and Camroden Associates have released their big building testing manual, Blower Door Applications Guide: Beyond Single Family Residential.
This book is authored by Terry Brennan and Mike Clarkin of Camroden Associates, and Gary Nelson, Collin Olson and Paul Morin of The Energy Conservatory.
This document has been developed by the hard work of the authors based on their years of experience and research testing buildings that are beyond single family residential units. We have tried to provide a basic understanding of the steps involved with testing larger and more complicated buildings.
This book is divided into three basic sections. Chapters 1, 2 and 3 describe all of the information and preparation needed before a test can be performed. Chapter 4 provides information on testing buildings using equipment from The Energy Conservatory (TEC) of Minneapolis, MN, USA. Chapters 5 and 6 concern work after the test is done such as finding leaks and writing the report. The Appendices provide some working terminology and hazard analysis.
The authors intend that this document will be periodically updated as more information is gathered and more test procedures are defined.
