Infiltrometer™ Blower Door Test
All homes should have some air leakage, but most homes leak too much. Some symptoms of excessive leakage include uneven temperatures, wasted energy, excessive dust, cold in the winter, and clammy in summer. On the other hand, some homes are too tight and can have poor Indoor Air Quality because of this.
To measure a home’s air tightness, Department of Energy scientists at Princeton University invented the blower door instrument (Infiltrometer). It is sometimes featured in magazines and on television including, Popular Science and This Old House.
Using the blower door system your Comfort & Indoor Air Quality Advisor can evaluate just how leaky or tight your entire home is, and where improvements could be made.

Air Leakage Evaluation
Not all air leaks are created equal. From an indoor air quality standpoint, the ones around your windows and doors are considered good leaks seeing how they let in fresh outdoor air. Bad leaks can let in dusty, moldy or even polluted air from your attic or garage. Leaky air ducts often bring in dirty air, and cause your HVAC system to perform well below optimum performance. As part of the blower door test, your Advisor will identify where your home’s worst air leaks are, and where improvements could be made.
Air Flow Diagnosis
If your air duct system has design flaws or hidden restrictions, your air flow could be restricted or distributed unevenly. This wastes money and can make your home extremely uncomfortable. Studies conducted for electric utilities nationwide show that over 66% of all heat pumps and air conditioners suffer from this issue. Your Comfort advisor will check the static pressure, often compared to blood pressure for blockages or design issues.
Electronic Air Flow Capture Hood Test
Are there rooms in your home that are hard to heat or cool? There are economical solutions. Your Comfort Advisor will use an air flow hood to measure precisely how much air is getting to those rooms (provided the supply vents are accessible). If air flow is low, the causes will be determined, and appropriate solutions will be prescribed.
Personalized Improvement Plan
Once the inspection and testing have been completed your comfort Advisor will explain the results. At this time, you will be provided with a prioritized plan of recommended improvements. There are some improvements that can be performed by the home owners such as caulking or weather-stripping. Some of the other improvements may require professionals. Before we leave your home, your comfort advisor will prepare a proposal for the repairs recommended. We can also recommend other contractors for services we do not offer upon request.
