What is a blower door test?

A blower door test is performed to determine how “tight” a home is. A blower door is a powerful fan that is mounted into the frame of an exterior door. The fan pulls air out of the house, lowering the air pressure inside. The higher outside air pressure then flows in through all unsealed cracks and openings. This test determines the air infiltration rate of a building.
