Blower Door Testing
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.
As part of this process, we will inspect the house with a smoke stick to pinpoint potentially hidden air leaks (making it much easier to address them when the time comes to get to work).
An integral part of the Home Energy Assessment portion of the Cleveland Energy $aver program, the blower door test allows the home energy auditor to determine how much energy your home is wasting through air leaks in the building envelope, and to provide a prioritized list of ways to reduce that air leakage -- resulting in annual energy savings, as well as an overall more comfortable home.
