Energy Assessments and Blower Door Tests


Determine the Energy Your House is Using

Does your electricity bill seem too high? Is your house maintaining the proper temperature throughout? If you think you’re wasting too much energy in your home, it may be time to get an energy assessment from Home Comfort Insulation.

When we assess your energy usage, we determine just how much is being used and the right amount you should be at. A thorough assessment of your home from one of our trained professionals can help you determine the proper steps to fixing your wasted energy issues. We have the tools and experience necessary to accurately determine all points of energy loss in your home and can advise on how to fix your situation.

Find the Best Energy Savings with a Blower Door Test

At Home Comfort Insulation, we can determine the air-tightness of your home with one of our blower door tests. During our energy assessment, we set up a blower door that mounts to the frame of an exterior door.

The purpose of the blower door is to pull air out of your house, lowering the air pressure inside. We can then determine what parts of your house are unsealed by observing where the higher-pressure air is flowing in. The blower fan is the most effective and simplest way to determine where all leaks and cracks are in your home.
