Blower Door Testing For Commercial Building Enclosures
The Blower Door Test is an important part of the commissioning procedure for residential, commercial and multifamily new constructions or renovations/retrofits. This air-leakage testing measures the flow of conditioned conditioned air through the building enclosure with standardized differential pressures.

The data can reveal different metrics of airtightness, depending on which standard and method was used. These metrics include air exchanges per hour for a specified pressure difference.

Construction Standards are evolving
The blower door test can be a very effective way to discover leaks. A large fan is mounted in the exterior entranceway. The fan lowers the pressure of the interior air to reveal any cracks, crevices, or openings through which air can enter or leave the building.

This data can be used by technicians to calculate the required size of heating or cooling equipment. Blower-door data is usually compiled and expressed in air changes per hours at a specified pressure of the building, like 50 pascals.

These metrics are determined by determining airflow through the fan and measuring indoor and outdoor pressurized with digital gauges located on the blower hardware. As temperature and barometric force affect air viscosity and density, they must be compensated for to get accurate measurements.

Energy Efficiency
Blower-door testing can be used to detect air leakage in construction or renovation. Airtight buildings will improve comfort and reduce energy costs.

Basic test: A calibrated blower is sealed temporarily into a window or a door opening, and then used to pressurize enclosure. The fan's pressure imbalance forces air into the building enclosure through any cracks or holes. To calculate the values of Qfan & PnBuilding we measure airflow and compare it to the building pressure.

The test could include a stack-effect pressure as a baseline to account for temperature differences between interior and exterior. Using the information provided, the airtightness level of the building can then be compared against a performance standard or third-party specification. Depending on standard and project, the results can either be used to demonstrate code conformity or to pinpoint areas in need of remediation.

Indoor Air Quality
Blower door testing helps identify air leaks and their impact on comfort. Accurate Airtight Exteriors utilizes this data, along with a visual examination and infrared-technology to help resolve problems in commercial, industrial or multiple family buildings.

This test measures the enclosure of a structure by using high-powered fans to either depressurize or pressurize it. By creating a difference in pressure between the interior and exterior, air is forced through all openings and penetrations. Depending on which standard is being used, different metrics will be used.

They include the number and rate of air changes at a specific indoor/outdoor air pressure differential as well the amount of exterior air needed to equalize pressure in the interior. This is done to account for temperature differences. This is very important because temperature differences can change the pressure.

Comfort
Blower door tests are essential for many reasons during construction. It accurately identifies any air leakage leading to increased insulation and decreased heating and cooling cost. It increases indoor comfort as it ensures consistent temperature control. Lastly, it allows a building contractor to meet certain energy efficient incentive programs by conforming to ACH50 for their climate zone.

A blower-door system consists a frame made of expandable metal that can be fitted into a window or large exterior door. There is also a nylon sheet attached to the frame, and a fan calibrated to push air either out or inside the structure. It is attached to a monoometer or pressure gauge, and a notebook computer that tracks metrics including ACH50.

For the best possible test results, prepare the house or space by locking and closing all interior door during the test. It is important to turn off all exhaust fans and gas-burning devices, since they can introduce carbon monoxide in the test environment.
