What Is a Blower Door Test?
When Breathe Easy of CNY performs a blower door test, we close all exterior doors and windows in your house and then place a plastic blower door over the front entrance. The door contains a powerful fan that draws the air from the house to depressurize it, causing outdoor air to rush in through any available avenues.
A blower door test allows our auditors to detect leaks in the building envelope of your house. These leaks contribute to energy waste, drafts, excess heat, and outdoor contaminants entering your living space. After a blower door test, we can make detailed recommendations for improving your home’s envelope.
Infrared Blower Door Test
To make our blower door tests even more effective, we use infrared cameras (thermal imagers) to better determine where heat is moving in and out of your house. We can use this information to tell the difference between air leaks and insulation gaps, and you’ll receive a more detailed report about home improvements.
