Blower Door Test

Energy Pros determine if your home is airtight

  • First, a powerful fan is fitted into the frame of an exterior door
  • The fan is turned on and sucks the air out of the house
  • Digital gauges compare the air pressure of inside the home vs outside
  • This determines how much air is leaking into the house
Duct Blaster Test

Energy Pros find air any leaks in your HVAC ducts

  • A fan connected to the return grille forces air through the ductwork
  • Fan speed is increased until precise leak measurements are made
  • Airflow & pressure gauges measure leakage
  • Theatrical fog is used to uncover leaks around doors & windows
Test Results

A detailed report highlights air leaks & needed repairs

  • You’ll get an “ACH” or Air Changes per Hour rating
  • An ACH of 4-5 means a semi-airtight home, 6+ means a leaky home
  • You’ll get an “CFM” or Cubic Feet per Minute rating
  • A CFM below 1250 is reasonably airtight, 1300+ means a leaky home
