Well i haven't really kept up with the posting of information or pictures on the site. I'll blame it on being busy working on the house and making it happen! That and a busy young family. But Good News we have passed with flying colors i might add our first Blower Door Test!!!! the Canadian R2000 standard set's the Bar at 1.5 Air changed per Hour at a 50 pascal pressure difference, The passive house standard is much more strict. at 0.60 ACH@50 we have come in at 0.17 ACH@50!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! so exciting this makes our goal of heating the house with just using the Fresh air supply of the HRV! one step closer,
Next thing on the list of herdles to Passive House Certification is to calculate our thermal bridges, and we hope that once those are all tallied up we will be below our heating load mark of being able to heat with just the fresh air feed of the HRV.
