Home Performance Diagnostics is a step-by-step, beautifully photographed technical manual for performing home performance testing.

More than 40 different test methods are demonstrated in clear detail, and with corresponding formulas and interpretations, in 3 main sections: Envelope, HVAC, and Electrical, PLUS: an Introduction to systems thinking and the most efficient breakdown yet of building science fundamentals, and an Appendix demonstrating critical prerequisites to testing.
