Blower Door Test

New Construction? New Home? Do you think your home is losing heat?

Great news! Semcac’s HELP team offers Blower Door Tests. If you have new construction, a new home or want to learn about the airflow in your home to make decisions that will help you save energy, we recommend getting a Blower Door Test.

What is a blower door test?

A blower door test utilizes a powerful fan that is mounted to the frame of an exterior door. The fan pulls air out of the house and lowers the pressure inside. Then the auditors can find air leaks. Our professional energy auditors use the test and their gauges to help determine a home’s air pressure tightness and measure air flow.

Establishing proper air seals and air tightness in your home can help you:

  • Reduce your energy consumption due to leakages
  • Avoid drafts

  • Avoid moisture condensation issues

  • Determine what is needed for ventilation
