Blower Door Testing

Blower door testing stands at the forefront of comprehensive energy audits, offering an indispensable means to evaluate a building's air tightness and energy efficiency. This advanced diagnostic technique involves the use of a specialized fan and pressure measurement devices to detect air leaks within a structure. By manipulating air pressure, the blower door helps reveal areas where drafts or uncontrolled airflows occur, enabling precise identification of potential energy inefficiencies. Through this process, experts can accurately pinpoint locations that require sealing or insulation improvements, ultimately leading to enhanced energy conservation, increased comfort, and cost savings for homeowners or building managers. Blower door testing not only serves as a foundational step in energy audits but also plays a vital role in creating more sustainable and energy-efficient buildings.
Rest assured, when you choose Perkins Inc., you are selecting a partner that prioritizes the science of home performance evaluation to ensure your energy conservation and comfort needs are met with precision and expertise.

How A Blower Door Works

The Blower Door

The blower door, a sizable fan installed into an exterior doorway, works by either pressurizing or depressurizing air within a building, creating a vacuum effect that uncovers points of air infiltration or escape. Connected sensors measure a structure's airtightness by assessing pressure differences between the homes interior and exterior. This method identifies air leakage sites, illuminating areas needing insulation or air sealing enhancements to boost a building's energy efficiency and overall comfort. Paired with an infrared camera, this combination forms a powerful tool for assessing a building's air tightness and insulation. While the blower door depressurizes the building to reveal air leakage zones, the infrared camera, sensitive to temperature variations, captures images displaying the thermal contrasts associated with these leaks. This combined method offers a thorough evaluation of a building's energy performance, uncovering both the overall air leakage and specific areas requiring insulation or sealing improvements. This integrated technology aids in identifying and remedying energy inefficiencies, providing a comprehensive understanding of a building's energy loss.

Why You Need A Blower Door:

  • Identifies Air Leaks: Pinpoints areas where air may infiltrate or escape from a building, helping to seal off these leaks.
  • Determines Airtightness: Measures the overall airtightness of a structure by evaluating pressure differences between the inside and outside.
  • Enhances Energy Efficiency: Assists in improving a building's energy efficiency by identifying areas that need insulation or sealing enhancements.
  • Improves Comfort: Helps create a more comfortable living or working environment by maintaining a consistent indoor temperature and reducing drafts.
  • Reduces Energy Costs: Minimizes energy consumption by identifying and rectifying air leaks, thereby lowering heating and cooling costs.
  • Validates Building Codes: Assists in meeting energy efficiency standards and codes required for construction or renovation.
  • Combined Assessment: When paired with infrared cameras, provides a comprehensive evaluation of a building's energy performance by visualizing temperature variations and identifying specific areas for improvements.

Is Your Attic Costing You Money?!?!

All it takes is a quick peek to find out! Many older homes have more air leaks and less insulation than homes built today. If your attic floor is insulated but the wood beams (joists) are still visible, you probably don’t have enough attic insulation and it wouldn’t be a bad idea to reach out to us today for a free insulation quote!

This was the only company I could find that actually had special tools to come physically find the problem areas at my house instead of just telling me I needed insulation and an attic fan. My home was leaking air all over the place and I had a disconnected duct that was blowing air into the attic. Insulation alone would never have solved my proplems and no other company that gave me a quote even mentioned the duct work problem. The pictures and report they send in the audit are very detailed and actually show the problem areas to you. Scott and his team are a win!

I had the pleasure of having Perkins Energy Conservation and staff into my home for an energy efficiency assessment. I was very pleased with the excellent workmanship. Perkins Energy Conservation explained in a way that I could understand how simple matters in the air conditioning such as leaks and setup could cost me additional money on my energy bill. The staff are personable and easy to communicate with and I highly recommend them.

Perkins Energy Conservation has made drastic improvements to my household, saving me money and making my home much more comfortable. The attic insulation removal and reinstall job they preformed on my home combined with the home weatherization and duct sealing made my home much warmer in the winter and much cooler in the summer. Their services are top notch and any home owner/renter should take advantage of what Scott can do for your home!

Jonathan C.

They were great! Came as scheduled to do audit, gave me several choices of how to proceed after the complete home performance test. Work was done on time, as scheduled. They completely cleaned up area they worked in. New insulation and air sealing is great and such a money saver on heating this past winter.
