Blower Door and Duct Leakage Testing

Go Green, NM provides Blower Door and Duct Leakage testing for build green programs and the Albuquerque Energy Conservation Code. Below are a few tips:

  • Draft stop all cavities an seal all corners in platform returns. Alternatively hard duct the return inside the platform.
  • Seal all bypasses that allow air to leak into the home. For example, seal penetrations on exterior walls, junction boxes and HVAC registers to sheetrock with canned foam or caulk, caulk bottom plates to foundation, etc.
  • Minimize duct leakage to the outside by installing ducts in conditioned space or seal all ducts outside of conditioned space with mastic.
