2020 Fall Presentation Series: Air Tightness and Ventilation

Build-tight, ventilate right has been a well-researched and proven standard to live by in building science and design for decades. The Washington codes have now followed suit in requiring this best practice for multi-family housing and other building types. SeaBEC is excited to announce our fall line-up of speakers including local and nationally recognized experts on the topics of air tightness & proper ventilation. Please join us September 17th, October 15th, and November 19th for an in-depth three-part discussion. 

Part 1 - Fresh Air: where does it come from and how does it lead to a code proposal?

Inspiration can come from many sources. Come hear how the new 2018 energy code requirements for commercial building airtightness and the brand new balanced mechanical ventilation for multifamily buildings came to be. Learn about the research and modeling completed to support the proposals, how the new requirements help the state take the next step toward reducing net energy use 70% by 2030, and discover what is the remaining gap between current code and Passive House certification.
