Common Wall Air Leakage Quantification in Solid Masonry Semi-Detached Homes

Industry partner BlueGreen Consulting Group Inc. worked in partnership with faculty member Dragos Paraschiv and students from Humber’s Sustainable Energy and Building Technology program to collect scientific data on air leakage between walls in houses that are connected by an interior wall (semi-detached or townhomes) using blower door technology. The results of this project will be used to provide current homeowners and new builders with incentives to decrease air leakage and improve the overall energy efficiency of their homes.
