Blower Door Testing & Infrared Diagnostics
Minneapolis Residential Insulation Contractors
At Lewis Insulation, we offer a range of services to help you start making your home more comfortable, more affordable, and more environmentally friendly, today.
Having your home evaluated with an Infrared camera sheds valuable light on the effectiveness of your home’s thermal envelope. An infrared scanner reveals hidden air leaks and areas where insulation isn’t performing, and can also yield some interesting surprises – such as where an un-insulated hot water pipe or recessed lights may be contributing to an ice dam, for an example.
Blower Door Testing
Blower door testing is a way to test the “leakiness” of your home. By depressurizing your home and measuring the rate at which air infiltrates through imperfections in the building envelope, we’re able to assess how much energy (and money) is escaping through air leaks, and how much you’re likely to save by fixing those leaks. As part of this process, we will inspect the house with an Infrared camera to pinpoint potentially hidden air leaks (making it much easier to address them when the time comes to get to work). We also offer blower door testing as an isolated service to test the effectiveness of improvements that have been made to a home, and to provide homeowners and contractors with a road map to further improve a home’s efficiency moving forward.
