What is A Blower Door Test?

Blower Door Tests are performed by inserting a fan on the front door of a building that fits with an airtight sea. All external doors and windows are closed and all interior doors are opened. Additionally, exhaust fans in kitchen and bathrooms must be off and fireplace dampers must be closed. The fan is then used to pull the air out of the building (or occasionally into the building). The more enclosed the building, the less air will be needed to cause the pressure to drop in the building. This information can be used to give a overall area of leakage, or combined with other methods like infrared testing to determine the amount of leakage on specific wall, window, or HVAC vent.
