AIR LEAKAGE TESTING - More Information


What is a blower door test? (Envelope leakage test.)

Blower door testing is a way to test the "leakiness" of your home. By depressurizing your home and measuring the rate at which air infiltrates through imperfections in the building envelope, we're able to assess how much energy (and money) is escaping through air leaks, and how much you're likely to save by fixing those leaks. As part of this process, we will inspect the house to pinpoint potentially hidden air leaks (making it much easier to address them when the time comes to get to work). Blower door testing is performed as part of an Energy Audit, a HERS Rating and ENERGY STAR certification, as well as an isolated service to test the effectiveness of improvements that have been made to a home.  It can provide homeowners and contractors with a roadmap to further improve a home's efficiency moving forward.
