Air Leakage Testing: A Hot Button or Hot Air?

Blowing air into your building can prevent you from blowing your stack about its envelope performance. Air leakage testing quantitatively measures air seeping through your enclosure. The process involves pressurizing a space with blower door fans to create a detectable differential across the envelope. But it’s not always an appropriate method for problem detection. Pressure testing is necessary when problems have become particularly invasive or if quantitative analysis is desired to prove compliance, verify performance, or identify opportunities for upgrades. Become an educated consumer of this service by building a rudimentary understanding of building science and enclosure performance. They say…
