Blower Door Tests in Greater Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky

If your energy usage is soaring, even when you’re practicing good energy saving habits, you aren’t solely to blame. There’s a possibility that your home’s structure is riddled with air leaks, which are common problems that bring about uncomfortable air circulation. An unpleasant indoor environment forces you to heavily rely on your HVAC systems – consuming more electricity as a result.

To prevent this problem, it’s crucial that your home undergoes a blower door test. This test will help detect the air leaks so they can be professionally sealed.

What’s a Blower Door Test?

Blower Door Tests in Greater Cincinnati & Northern Kentucky

A blower door test is used to determine the airtightness of a building. It works by mounting a blower door into the frame of an exterior door, which pulls air out of the house and lowering the air pressure inside. While it does this, the outside air pressure flows through cracks, holes, and other openings. If the property isn’t airtight, it means that it’s harboring dozens of air leaks.

This test isn’t only used to detect air leaks. It’s also useful to avoid the following problems:

  • High energy consumption
  • Potential moisture or condensation problems
  • Uncomfortable drafts

Of course, the test should only be done by the professionals. They have the necessary equipment and experience to handle the procedure properly. When you want to have your home tested, contact Cool Times. We’ve been in the HVAC contracting business for more than 10 years, so we know exactly how to carry out this service.
