blower door test a huge success on theSAGE

2009-04-02

EWEB conducted the blower door test on our house yesterday. We did a preliminary test because it’s easier to seal any leaks before sheetrock. Energy Star requires 7.0 air changes per hour or less. We came in at 1.7 ach. At normal pressure, Code requires about 0.5 ach and we were at 0.08. We have a heat recovery ventilator that will recover heat while introducing fresh air in a controlled manner. April 2, 2009.
