Blower Door Testing

Blower Door TestingBlower 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. Humid air, that leaks into homes in Alabama, can condense into water inside walls causing mold to grow.

As part of this process, we will inspect the house with a smoke stick and infrared camera 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.

For example: home attics that are sealed with foam sometimes have gaps where moist outside air leaks in and causes mold and/or there is now not enough fresh air coming into the home for good indoor air quality. We can test, calculate, upgrade and solve these and other issues.

In addition to being a critical component of a whole house energy audit, blower door testing is required for Energy Star homes and many green building and energy efficient building standards nationwide.
