Dr. Joe Lstiburek is back !

Dr. Joseph Lstiburek returns this year for both days at AABSS2023.

It has been several years since we have hosted Dr. Joe and he has created new material and publications since then.

Meet Dr. Joe in person at Building Science Winter Break on Tuesday 1-24-23 immediately following the first day sessions.
John Tooley Presents Mad Air
MAD-AIR 2023 Mechanical Air Distribution and Interacting Relationships

"In the pursuit of the high quality, tight, super insulated, and energy efficient home, we might have built in problems that can be so elusive and hidden that the best of contractors only come away with stress-related illness rather than the answer that spells RELIEF".

These are words I wrote in 1986 in a paper titled MAD-AIR. Our code has changed airtightness and insulation levels with better installation.

These changes may have exposed us to a much madder MAD-AIR. We will compare 1986 to today and discover the changes and their effect on the house system. If you design, work on, rate, or assess retrofit needs this is a must-see presentation. 

Receive a copy of the 1986 MAD-AIR paper that started it all as we revisit its findings and explore its present day implications.
