An excellent video of a blower-door test at a Passivhaus

Martin Holladay | Posted in Energy Efficiency and Durability on

Check out this excellent video of Skylar Swinford (of Hammer and Hand) describing a recent blower-door test at their current Passivhaus project, dubbed the Karuna House:

Here’s a link to the video on the Hammer and Hand web site. (Since the site is having problems, the YouTube link above is probably more dependable):

There are lots of good details in the video. Good work, Skylar!

    The link doesn't seem to be working, it comes up as server not found.

    The link was working this morning. It looks like Hammer and Hand's web site is down.

    I guess GBA isn't the only site that sometimes has technical problems. Let's hope that the site gets up and running soon.
