Well, we've produced another episode of WxTV.
Be sure to check out: Blower Door Basics: Part III - The Breakdown
http://www.weatherization.org/wxtv28

Not only do we take you through the results of the blower door test on this strawbale home...(ever wondered where all those numbers come from and what they mean??)...but there's also an animated segment explaining the physics behind a blowerdoor test.

As a special treat (and thanks to some viewer feedback) we've included another installement of our "Ben's Toolbox" feature. These features tend to be some of the more talked-about portions of WxTV, so don't be left out of any watercooler chatter!

And remember, if you're still needing to get your Social-Media groove on, be sure to check out WxTV on Facebook. It's just another way to keep up on the latest developments. Don't be afraid to press "Like It," even if you're on the fence!
