BLOWER DOOR TESTING
HOW MUCH MONEY IS ESCAPING YOUR HOME?
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. Blower door testing alerts HVAC technicians of any drafts, leaks, or lack of insulation in your home, so that you can make sure to have holes or cracks properly sealed and any other problems addressed.
As part of this process, we will inspect the house with a smoke stick to pinpoint potentially hidden air leaks (making it much easier to address them when the time comes to get to work). We also offer blower door testing as an isolated service to test the effectiveness of improvements that have been made to a home, and to provide homeowners and contractors with a roadmap to further improve a home's efficiency moving forward.
In addition to being a critical component of a whole house energy audit, blower door testing is required for many green building and energy efficient building standards nationwide. Any measures taken to make your home more energy-efficient help the environment. Trying to go green? A blower door test is a smart way to prioritize the environment, making sure you’re expending the least amount of greenhouse gases possible. You can feel confident that you are doing your part to help the environment.
