Air Leakage Testing - Overview
Building Airflow Standard
Understanding your home's building airflow standard is the key to avoid drafts, moisture, mold and improve the comfort levels of your home. You Save Green utilizes our background in building science to determine the proper amount of airflow in your home. Finding the exact requirements of air required for the occupants in the home and allowing the home to still "breathe" is key.
The airflow is measured using diagnostic testing equipment such as the 'blower door'. This allows us to measure the airflow in CFM (cubic feet per minute). The number is then recorded and compared to the standard for the specific home based on occupants, conditioned square footage and geographic location.
