Project: Military Housing – Southeast U.S.
LBFG provided diagnostic testing (including blower door testing and pressure pan testing) to test building air tightness and evaluate overall home pressurization and HVAC system performance.
LBFG was asked to determine what was needed to get HVAC units in up to 100 homes at a U.S. AFB working in such a way as to prevent moisture-related problems, and to remediate any mold problems we discovered. Blower door testing showed the homes’ envelopes to be fairly tight and adequate to meet required ventilation rates. Attic mechanical exhaust systems were recommended for removal and outside air ductwork was recommended for positive pressurization.
