Blower Door Test

When building your new home, it is important to create a tight seal that does not allow outside air to penetrate the building's interior. While natural ventilation is important to maintain indoor air quality, too much air infiltration is like throwing money out the window each month when you pay your utility bill. Dubois REC has the capability of measuring this airflow by performing a blower door test. The blower door is a diagnostic tool that helps locate and measure air leaks in a building.

The blower door consists of an expandable pane that fits in an open doorway, a powerful fan, and a set of pressure gauges. The blower door creates a pressure difference between the interior and exterior of the building. The induced pressure causes air to move through leaks at an exaggerated rate, making them easy to pinpoint. It is important to us that your home is as efficient as possible and the blower door test will help solve your problems that you otherwise would be paying for each month. Dubois REC will perform the test and issue you a report of our findings. This is just one more way the experts at Dubois REC can help your energy needs.
