Air infiltration testing and duct pressurization testing service

 

What are they?

 

Blower doors and duct pressurization devices have become an important tool for high performance builders.

 

As building codes evolve, more commercial and residential buildings across the United States are being designed to meet standards that reduce air leakage through the building enclosure. Those leakage points cost the building occupants to be uncomfortable and pay high energy costs.  New York DOB is requiring buildings to meet the IECC (International Energy Conservation Code) for air infiltration and duct leakage.

 

The presence of a tighter building enclosure allows for lower utility bills, provides the ability to size mechanicals correctly, improves indoor air quality and reduces issues due to moisture brought in by gaps in the enclosure.

 

Testing ductwork in residential HVAC systems for air tightness is essential to ensure a home will be energy efficient and comfortable. Tighter ducts help mechanicals perform better by allowing conditioned air to travel to its intended destination. They also keep newly conditioned air from escaping to the outside of the home. New York City and municipal code jurisdictions are including duct sealing and testing requirements for residential new construction.
