Using a blower door along with a thermal imaging camera is one of the best ways to find air leaks in a building envelope. The blower door acts as an amplifier for the camera. Not only does this method help you find the leaks, you can also determine the severity of some leaks compared to others as you slowly adjust the building pressure. Join Sam Myers in this video as he shows an example of this process.
Air tightness testing for a home is becoming more common in both new construction and existing homes. More states and code jurisdictions are now requiring new residential and commercial buildings to be tested before they are occupied. Having an air tightness requirement for enclosures and blower door testing to ensure the requirement is met provides occupants with more efficient, durable, comfortable and healthy buildings. We use blower doors to test the existing homes we maintain to determine how air tightness contributes to the issues our customers are dealing with.
In this video, we walk through the details of how to run a blower door test and what's involved with air tightness testing. Follow along with Sam Myers of Retrotec as he prepares a home for testing, sets up the equipment, conducts a manual test, and conducts an automated test with rCloud. Air tightness testing of building enclosures is gaining momentum within multiple trades in the building and HVAC industries. It is a key component for delivering a comfortable, healthy and efficient home.
In this video, Sam Myers walks you through the steps of performing a residential duct leakage test with the most durable, accurate and user-friendly equipment on the market. He covers total duct leakage by doing the test manually and with using the rCloud app, our automated testing platform that generates a sharable report at the end of the test. Sam also demonstrates how to to conduct a duct leakage to outside test (LTO) in his air tightness test simulator. The Retrotec DucTester is the
