Have you noticed there are gaps in your front door that let the air through from the outside? Are you worried about the energy efficiency of your home, but you aren’t sure where to start figuring out the source of the problem? One option that is helpful for many homeowners is blower door testing. But what is blower door testing, and how can it be used to help with your home’s energy efficiency? Here are a few of the things it can help you achieve:
- Measure Air Leaks – Blower door testing is a great way to measure air leaks, including their severity and how many exist. If you have a properly sealed home, the blower door will remain inflated, and you will know you have fewer problematic leaks. If, however, the blower door requires constant air to keep it inflated, you may have air leaks that need to be addressed.
- Discover Defects – Additionally, blower door testing can help to detect areas in your home where you may have defective ventilation. This is especially helpful if you are dealing with areas of poor temperature regulation and you are looking for solutions.
- Improve Energy Outlook – The best part of blower door testing is that you will have a clearer view of the energy efficiency of your home. Then you can take steps to improve air leaks and other deficiencies that allow you to improve your home comfort and reduce your energy bills.
