Blower Door Testing

Blower Door TestingSustainMax does not currently offer blower door testing as a stand alone procedure. If you are a builder and need help finding someone who does blower door testing, feel free to give us a call.

Blower 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.

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

The Montana Weatherization Training Center has produced a great video short that explains the basics of blower door testing.
