The recent update to the New Jersey energy code has many builders wondering how they will comply the new requirements without excessive impact to construction schedule and costs. Most notable of the changes is the requirement for mandatory blower door testing and for homes to meet the three-air-changes-per-hour threshold. Metro member Owens Corning has a solution that has been successful with builders that already meet his challenge. Production builders in Dallas (after they adopted 3ACH50 in 2016), Canada and other markets are already using our solution. Owens Corning wishes to bring this knowledge to you. Owens Corning invested in understanding the fundamentals of air-sealing through proprietary research, before collaborating with the industry to navigate nuanced challenges.
At this free presentation, we shall discuss our research findings and case studies. This isn’t a sales presentation, but a sharing of knowledge. Please join us as we open a discussion into how effective air-sealing can be done without breaking the bank.
