What Are The Benefits of a Blower Door Test?

When offering a comprehensive, well-rounded home energy audit to our customers, Fire and Ice conducts several standard procedures including a blower door test.

Blower door testing is an important part of any household energy audit and is performed to measure air-leakage rates of your home. It is also used to identify leakage points in the building envelope that if addressed, could result in improved air quality, mould prevention, reduction of condensation and energy savings.

There are many benefits of our blower door testing service. By knowing your home’s leakage rate improves the accuracy of heat-load calculations, and ensures properly sized equipment and optimum long-term performance.

To address uncomfortable drafts caused by cold air leaking in from the outdoors, let us perform air tightness testing on your home.

What Can We Do

Thermal Imaging

Another component to the home energy audit that Fire and Ice System Design offers to our customers is thermal imaging. Thermal imaging is performed to identify surface temperature on an interior or exterior, horizontal or vertical surface.

Thermal imaging provides a visual colour gradient related to the surface temperature. Knowing what the temperature should be, relative to the environmental conditions, can help identify issues with the building envelope as well as the heating and cooling systems.

Using thermal imaging in conjunction with the blower door test can help to identify, more specifically, the location of air leakage. Knowing the location of air leakage can direct you toward solutions to address the issue, limiting the need for guess work.

If you’re looking for blower door testing or thermal imaging services, Fire and Ice System Design experts will work closely with you to provide the best solutions to handle your home’s air-tightness and heat-loss issues. CONTACT US for solutions to handle your specific needs.
