Building Science is a complex topic. It draws upon not only the architecture of the home, the physics used in building the home, the engineering of a better building, but also how the build will effect you in the environment you are building in. Essentially it is combining everything to attempt to build a better home, not only from the construction side but from an efficiency and health view.
In the world of HVAC systems it is becoming increasingly apparent that we as contractors are being asked to open ourselves up to more areas. While 20 years ago you just needed to know what to throw into a home to cool it on the hottest day of the year. As the complexity and quality of new home builds grew so did the complexity of our designs. Building science is a growing field that is helping us not only design for certain conditions but also test for them. You think your build is tight but do you really know that it is sealed? Check your blower door test. Your ductwork looks tight, surely it is right? A duct blaster test can tell you.
While it is really an emerging idea for an hvac company to spread into the actual testing of homes, the implications of insulation values, tightness of homes, tightness of ductwork, humidity levels, fresh air exchange, etc... on your homes hvac system design are numerous so if we are designing for different conditions why would we not then test for them? This section of the website will walk through the different tests that can be performed on your home and what information they give you.
