What is a blower door test? -Blower door tests are preformed by professional energy auditors to determine a home’s tightness.
According to The U.S. Department of Energy , establishing proper building tightness can do all of the following:
- Reduce energy consumption due to air leakage
- Stop moisture condensation problems
- Prevent uncomfortable drafts caused by air leaking in from outside
- Determine how much mechanical ventilation might be needed to provide acceptable indoor air quality
WMGB Home Improvement can provide you with local professional energy experts! Our professionals can pinpoint efficiency improvements with our blower door testing.
How they work- A powerful fan attaches to the frame of the buildings exterior door. The fan pulls air out of the building, lowering the air pressure inside. The higher air pressure outside then flows in through all of the cracks and openings throughout the home. Our experts at WMGB can then detect air leaks, determining the air infiltration rate of the home!
