Blower Door Testing Services in Kettering-Oakwood, OH

A blower door measures the airtightness of your property. It’s made up of a calibrated fan, a mounting system to install the fan to an exterior door, and a manometer — this is what measures pressure. Kettering Heating & Air provides the most reliable blower door testing services in Kettering-Oakwood, OH.

Why are Blower Door Tests Necessary?

• To avoid moisture condensation issues
• To avoid unpleasant drafts caused by the cold outdoor air leaking inside
• To avoid air leaks that cause excessive energy consumption
• To know how much mechanical ventilation is needed to have superior indoor air quality

How does a Blower Door Test Work?

The blower door pulls air out of the home, lowering the air pressure inside. Then, the air from the outside flows in through all the unsealed cracks and openings, as this has higher air pressure. Auditors may use a smoke pencil to find any air leaks. This entire test determines the air infiltration rate of a building.

There are two types of blower doors: calibrated and uncalibrated. Auditors must use a calibrated door to properly measure the amount of air that the fan pulls out of the home. An uncalibrated door only helps locate air leaks in your home.

Uncalibrated blower doors don’t provide any way to determine the overall airtightness of your home or building, so inquire about getting a calibrated blower door. The calibrated door data will make it easier for an auditor to quantify the amount of air leakage. This way, we can determine the effectiveness of an air-sealing job.
