AbstractThe purpose of the study was to identify the air tightness levels of a group of houses in the Saskatoon area. Included were houses of different ages, construction styles and methods of achieving air tightness. The note describes the houses, the test method and the results, and discusses the last in terms of house age, the contractor, construction style, and the effects of special air tightness techniques.
