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.
