EQUIPMENT

The most important tool in order to quantify infiltrations in residential buildings is the Minneapolis Blower Door® system, containing a fan encassed in a framework assembled onto the doorframe of the entry door, a datalogger, and some pressure inlets for indoor and outdoor. Its Datalogger software processes the data taking external(wind) and internal conditions(volume, sealing of openings) into account, and gives as a result the necessary infiltration indexes.
