Postcard of the day, July 01, 2014

In June we performed a Blower Door Test on one of our timber frame homes on Canandaigua Lake. The test ensures a virtually airtight envelope while allowing water vapor to dry out and maintain a comfortable environment. While the state of New York code requires less than 7 ACH50 (air changes per hour at 50 pascals), this home achieved a 1.5 ACH50. This type of envelope efficiency provides comfortable, efficient, and healthy insulated environment inside the home.
