      Part 3 of 3. In this presentation for home weatherization professionals, learn when and how to apply various pressure diagnostic and air-sealing strategies. Knowing where and how to apply these strategies will help participants be faster and more effective at air-sealing. Use of these strategies will be demonstrated on a ZPD House simulator. How to use Zonal Pressure Diagnostic charts will also be demonstrated. Session Objectives: By watching this session, participants will: 1. Learn strategies for more effective targeted air-sealing 2. Learn strategies for zonal pressure diagnostics 3. Learn how to test for worst-case CAZ depressurization Presenter Dale Sherman is the President and founder of EnergyWright and a Development Specialist at the New York State Weatherization Directors Association (NYSWDA). His 25+ year background in energy efficiency includes training and interactive prop development, design and development of immersive learning experiences, administers the NYS weatherization network’s OSHA NID lead safety report, and automation of NYSWDA’s full-scale Pressure Diagnostic Training House. He also created the tabletop ZPD House™ training simulator. This project was made possible by a grant awarded to Fond du Lac Tribal and Community College from the U.S. Department of Energy and the Minnesota Department of Commerce through the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (ARRA).
