Blower Door Testing
New energy codes require all new homes to receive a compliant blower door test. The air infiltration rate cannot exceed 5 air exchanges per hour, based on the UCC RAC modification to the code. Based on R303.1, if the tested rate is less than or equal to 5 air exchanges per hour, a whole home mechanical ventilation system is required to be installed. We work with builders, homeowners, and building code officials to ensure proper compliance with the code. Mike is a certified individual with the Building Performance Institute, BPI ID#:5025171.
