Blower Door Testing
A blower door is a powerful fan that mounts into the frame of an exterior door. The fan pulls air out of the house, lowering the air pressure inside. The higher outside air pressure then flows in through all unsealed cracks and openings. The buildings infiltration rate is measured and a leakage number is determined. Individual air leaks are detected with a room by room walkthrough. The findings are recorded and provided along with recommendations for improvements in your home's energy efficiency.
Gas Pipe Leak Testing
A Building Performance Institute (BPI) certified professional will perform a complete external and internal gas pipe leak test and present his or her findings with any needed improvements.
