Beat the blower door!
Call Northeast Air Sealing to get started.
As builders know, energy codes are getting tighter and tighter for new construction projects. Whether you’re looking to meet local or IECC code, air leakage is a crucial component, and many areas and municipalities in southern New Hampshire, northern Massachusetts, and southern Maine require blower door testing to be performed on new homes before an occupancy permit is issued.
Northeast Air Sealing offers blower door testing and certification both as a standalone service and as part of AeroBarrier air sealing installation to ensure that builders can quickly and easily meet any air tightness standards and pass the blower door test the first time, guaranteed!
Blower Door Testing for New Homeowners
Blower doors are a tool used to test the air tightness and energy efficiency of new homes. The “tighter” the home is, the fewer air leaks there are in the building envelope. Air leaks can lead to:
- Energy waste
- Higher heating and cooling costs
- Uneven room-to-room temperatures and comfort issues
- Unhealthy indoor air
- Mold growth and moisture issues
- & more
A blower door uses a powerful fan to pressurize the air inside your new home. This allows you to measure the severity and identify the location of air leaks. Blower door testing is not only necessary to issue a Certificate of Occupancy in much of our service area—the results can also be used to confirm the quality of your builder’s air sealing work prior to you moving in.
What Happens When You Fail a Blower Door Test?
Failing the blower door test requires a second round of air sealing and another blower door test, which both increases costs and delays construction. For homeowners, this could mean delaying your move-in date!
AeroBarrier is advanced air sealing technology that removes the risk of a failed blower door test. With guaranteed results, quick and safe application, and real-time air leakage monitoring, your builder can be sure that your new home will meet even the highest airtightness standards.
