Blower door testing is one of the most accurate ways to test the "leakiness" of your home. Blower doors depressurize your home and measure the rate at which air infiltrates through imperfections in the building envelope. This way 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 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.
According to the 2017 IECC Requirements, builders for a new construction have to test the air leakage and duct leakage in the house. Our blower door testing will provide an accurate assessment of any air leaks or duct leaks, so you can ensure that the new construction meets all standards and requirements.
