Even if your Northwest home is fitted with the best heating and cooling systems available, air leakage can severely undermine your home’s energy efficiency and comfort. That is why we at Revival Energy perform air leakage testing for homes in Vancouver, WA, and Portland, OR. When coupled with services like air sealing and duct sealing, air leakage testing can make your home more energy efficient and improve indoor air quality.
What Can an Air Leakage Test Tell Me?
Many homeowners put up with extreme indoor temperatures, abnormally high energy bills, and drafts, only to find out during a major renovation that their ducts leak and that insulation is missing in certain areas. An air leakage test can help you pinpoint gaps and cracks, and these types of issues before they continue to waste energy and your money. An air leakage test reveals points of air leakage, such as along your windows or in the attic. It may even explain moisture related issues such as mysterious stains on your walls or ceilings.
What Does Air Leakage Testing Entail?
Comprehensive air leakage testing can involve a number of techniques. We will use a blower door test to measure in CFM (cubic feet per minute) how much air leaks through your home’s structure. We will then compare that number to how much it should be based upon the air volume and occupancy levels in your home. Our technicians also use thermal imaging cameras to pinpoint areas of air leakage or missing insulation. After a comprehensive air leakage test, a technician can help you find solutions to the problems that are undermining your home’s energy efficiency and structural integrity.
