What is a Blower Door Test?

A blower door test is a test that will measure the air tightness of your home or business. A fan is mounted in an airtight frame of your front door or any other exterior door. The procedure allows the fan to pull air from the house, which then causes the interior pressure to be lowered. It pulls air in from the outside through the unsealed cracks or openings in the home if there are any.

You’ll have the amount of air measured by a pressure gauge. This helps us determine if there are any unsealed cracks and openings in the home where air is coming in and out. These places should be sealed up if you want an energy-efficient home.
