Blower Door Training

Airtightness is a key principle of creating healthy, energy efficient and resilient buildings. At the pro clima HUB, we offer a series of dedicated seminars covering the science of airtightness, why airtightness is desirable, and how Bloor Doors can be used to quantify the quality of construction.

Air Tightness Testing & Measurement

The term ‘airtightness’ is often misunderstood, yet airtight construction is so important for creating a building that works well.

Blower Doors are very useful tools for quantifying the quality of a constructed building envelope. The use of a Blower Door is also required for any building aiming for Passive House Certification.

Our Building Performance and Blower Doors seminar offers an introduction to the science of airtightness. We define what airtightness is (and what it isn’t). We go on to explore why airtightness is important and also how to achieve it. This introduction course is aimed at building owners, designers and builders who want to understand airtightness and when to use a Blower Door.

We also offer advanced training for those seeking to become ATTMA* accredited Blower Door testers.

Building Performance and Blower Doors

What is a blower door and why is it one of the best tools we have for measuring building performance?

Airtightness is a key element to building performance and a Blower Door is the tool to measure airtightness.

This introductory course covers the history and basic theory of Blower Door testing as well as a Blower Door demonstration.

Envelope Area Training (2D and 3D Envelope Calculations) - Online Training

Measuring building areas and volumes accurately and consistently is crucial for correct calculations of envelope permeability. The ATTMA envelope area training course teaches candidates how to carry out 2D take-offs and simple 3D models of buildings to ensure accurate envelope areas. The envelope area course uses well-known SketchUp and PDF programs, ensuring accurate, traceable envelope area calculations every time.

This training is provided live, on line via Sydney.

 

ATTMA Level 1 one-day Online Review Session

Online training for experienced Blower Door users who intend to sit the ATTMA Level 1 exam.

This course will provide an understanding of how ATTMA standards, regulatory standards, and project specifications for air tightness are applied in New Zealand and Australia. We will better understand how test results should be represented and compared, and how they relate to physical processes in real buildings.

The course will prepare for the open-book knowledge and theory exam, as well as an assessment of competency in using a common blower door system from either The Energy Conservatory or Retrotec.
