Researchers Testing New Air Sealing Technology

Jul 28, 2015

This week director of research Dave Bohac and senior research engineer Ben Schoenbauer, senior building analyst Jim Fitzgerald and building analyst Kirk Kolehma will be using new aerosol sealing technology as part of CEE's ongoing research project on the technology.

Researchers will air seal six units in a new construction four-story affordable housing project in a Minneapolis suburb that is part of the Minnesota Green Communities. In September, researchers will seal an additional four units in a hotel property.

The second phase of the project, sealing of 10 units during renovation, rehab, or occupant changeover, will begin in October 2015.
