As this building comes out of the ground, it is crucial to continue the tight air barrier in this Passive House. The details of the buildings are designed so that every possible break in the air barrier can be managed. Our crew is well equipped with some of the best tapes in the industry, including the Tescon Vana tapes seen in these images.
In order to become a certified Passive House, homes must pass a final blower door test in order to comply with .6 air leakage requirement or LESS. For context, Maryland homes only have to have 3 or lower to pass the energy code.
