Blower Door Test

Part of the Energy Compliance Testing, ENERGY STAR Certified Homes, HERS Modeled Home, Home Energy Evaluations Inspections

As part of the Blower Door Test, Momentum utilizes the Minneapolis Blower Door on-site, during the final inspection to measure the airtightness of forced air. Blower Doors provide a reliable, highly accurate and cost-effective method for determining a home’s air leakage. The Blower Door test can identify building envelope leakage; leaks such as penetration from plumbing and electrical can cause drafts resulting in an unwanted variance in temperature. Blower Door air tightness measurements can help estimate the need for additional mechanical ventilation.
