Blower Door Testing
Mechanical Testing, Inc. (MTI) Provides Blower Door Testing. There are many reasons for establishing the proper building tightness: Reducing energy consumption due to air leakage, avoiding moisture condensation problems, avoiding uncomfortable drafts caused by cold air leaking in from the outdoors, determining how much mechanical ventilation might be needed to provide acceptable indoor air quality. Plus this test can verify your homes tightness and save you $$$$ on your energy bills.
As of October, 3 2016 New York Residential Energy Code requires blower door testing in all residential buildings and allows compartmentalization in buildings with more than one apartment. Code requires a maximum air leakage in each dwelling unit to be 0.30 CFM50/SF (CFM tested at 50 Pascals per square foot of enclosure).
A blower door is a machine used to measure the air tightness of buildings. It can also be used to measure airflow between building zones, to test duct work air tightness and to help physically locate air leakage sites in the building envelope.
