The main equipment used when carrying out airtightness testing:
The most important tool in airtightness testing is your brain, especially when dealing with leakage prevention
Blower Door (fan)
Air Testers install blower door testing equipment (big fans) to an external opening (typically a doorway) and will use this to pressurise or depressurises the building and test over pressure differentials
A range of accessories are used on a test; a digital thermometer & barometer, gaffa tape, non toxic smoke and a thermal imaging camera are a few
Using thermal imaging, the tester will be able to identify air leakage points where warm air is escaping, this can then be remedied where needed to make the building more energy efficient
Pulse is a portable compressed air based system which is used to measure the air leakage of a building or enclosure at a near ambient pressure level (4Pa)
