Air seal door and window rough openings with backer rod, caulk, or nonexpanding foam
Air seal drywall to top plates at all attic/wall interfaces to minimize air leakage.
Air seal exterior doors to minimize air leakage.
Air seal floor joist cavities under kneewall with rigid foam, plywood, or OSB caulked in place
Air seal rough opening from inside
Air seal the attic access panel with weather stripping
Air seal the attic access pull-down stairs opening with weather stripping
Air seal the attic kneewall door opening with weather stripping
Air seal the common wall between units in a multi-family structure to minimize air leakage.
Air seal the electrical panel
Air seal the floor above a garage when there is living space above the garage and make sure floor insulation is in full contact with the underside of the subfloor.
Air seal the floor above an unconditioned basement or crawlspace and make sure floor insulation is in full contact with the underside of the subfloor.
Air seal the rough opening around doors and windows to minimize air leakage.
Air seal the top, bottom, and sides of a cantilevered floor cavity and ensure that insulation is in full contact with all sides without voids.
Air seal whole-house fans to minimize air leakage.
Air sealing behind a staircase
Air-tight electrical boxes have built-in gaskets and self-sealing wire holes
All ceiling, wall, floor, and slab insulation shall achieve RESNET-defined Grade I installation
All ENERGY STAR-qualified windows display the ENERGY STAR label
All of the exhaust fans are wired to one labeled switch at the electrical panel
All other supply ducts and all return ducts in unconditioned space have insulation ≥ R-6
All return air and mechanically supplied outdoor air pass through filter prior to conditioning
All seams are caulked to completely air seal the subfloor of the cantilever
All seams between structural insulated panels (SIPs) foamed and/or taped per manufacturer's instructions
Allow two to three feet of straight duct run from the fan exhaust port to the first elbow
An all-terrain forklift is used to move and stage the panels
An energy rater uses a duct blower to test HVAC duct air leakage.
An HRV or ERV provides balanced ventilation
An insulated spline is another option for avoiding thermal bridging at SIP panel seams
An oil-fired boiler with direct combustion air and exhaust venting
Application of window and door nonexpanding foam sealant
Apply caulk to wall framing
Apply roof underlayment over roof deck and up the sidewall over housewrap
Apply self-adhesive flashing over top edge of the wall flashing, diverter, and housewrap
Assembled section of fiber board duct
At the outlet of the dryer exhaust duct, install a hooded vent with a louvered damper
Attach the interior 2x4 wall to the exterior wall top plate with a flat metal connector plate
Back-draft damper still has a piece of tape that prevented it from rattling during shipping
Baffles made from sheet metal are installed to minimize sound and light transmission
Baffles provide an air space over the insulation to guide ventilation air from the soffit vents up along the underside of the roof deck
Balloon-framed walls have no top plate to prevent air flow into wall cavity
Basement slab w/ capillary break
Bathroom exhaust fan can vent out through the wall or up through the roof
Bathrooms should be equipped with an exhaust fan that vents directly outdoors
Batt insulation is not an effective air barrier
Batt insulation should be cut to fit around wiring so that insulation can completely fill the wall cavity
Batt was properly split around wires to achieve RESNET Grade I
Because flue temperatures are cool, intake and exhaust ducts on a Category 4 direct-vent sealed-combustion condensing furnace can be made of PVC
Bedrooms pressure-balanced and provide 1 sq. in. of free area opening per 1 CFM of supply air or achieve a Rater-measured pressure differential ≤ 3 Pa
Bedrooms pressure-balanced and provide 1 sq. in. of free area opening per 1 CFM of supply air or achieve a Rater-measured pressure differential ≤ 3 Pa
Below-grade wall assembly
Blown cellulose insulation completely fills the netted wall and ceiling cavities
Blown fiberglass insulation fills netted wall cavities
Blue stain
Boot has been covered with insulation and sealed with mastic
