Blower Door

Blower door tests can help identify air leaks that may be difficult to find, and can help determine if a home is airtight enough to meet energy efficiency standards. For example, net zero homes must have an airtight building envelope with an air change rate (ACH) of 1.0 or less, while passive houses must have an ACH of 0.6 at 50 pascals of pressure. Fixing air leaks can be an inexpensive way to improve a home's energy efficiency, as it often involves installing materials like weather resistant barriers, tapes, and caulking. 

On average, a blower door test costs between $200 and $450, but the price can vary depending on a number of factors such as size and age of home.
