WHAT IS A BLOWER DOOR?
A BLOWER DOOR is a machine that is used to measure the airtightness of buildings. It can also be used to measure airflow between building zones and to help physically locate the air leakage sites in the building envelope.
There are three (3) primary components to a BLOWER DOOR: (1) a calibrated variable-speed fan, (2) a manometer that measures pressure and (3) the big red DOOR that consists of a frame with a flexible panel that fits into an exterior doorway of the home.
By measuring the pressure and airflow inside and outside of the home in relation to each other, the air tightness of the building envelope can be quantified.
