Blower Door Testing FAQs
Blower Door Testing
The Blower Door test provides the potential size and amount of air leakage through the building envelope. The greater the amount, the less energy efficient the home will be. Passing a Blower Door test is now a requirement for many different state residential energy codes, including Florida.
Duct Leakage Testing
Duct testing provides the approximate total amount of air leakage through the duct system. This information enables the builder to identify air leakage areas, provide needed air sealing if necessary, and increase the energy efficiency of the home.
