Energy Audit Diagnostic Tools
Special diagnostic tools to help pinpoint the source of common home problems. Here are a few of the tools we use to perform our Home Energy Audit:
A blower door is a variable speed fan, mounted in a doorframe, used to pressurize and depressurize a house to measure air leakage.
A duct blower is a variable speed fan that is attached to a duct system to measure duct air leakage.
An instrument that measures the pressure differences between two locations.
A flow hood is a device used to measure the amount of air flowing through a register.a variable speed fan that is attached to a duct system to measure duct air leakage.
An infrared camera (video or still) makes an image that shows surface heat variations that can be used to help detect heat losses and air leakage in buildings.
