"Great explanation but I do not think this is where he was going.  I think he is thinking much simpler than this.   I really want to get my hand on one of your new Manometers.  Any review units available?  Dreaming........."

Chad Mcaulife replied to billy g pinnick jr's discussion Blower Door Question
"They are wrong you are right.  You are maintaining 50 pa.  If you had the blower door running, not on cruise control as you sealed the negative pressure would increase causing more leakage to come in through the other cracks. …"

Frank Spevak replied to billy g pinnick jr's discussion Blower Door Question
"As Bud Poll pointed out this is a bit of a trick question.  With a constantly running fan and making no adjustment, when you seal holes there will be the same total air coming in through the unsealed holes but the house pressure will then…"

"^^^^^ this.  Also, don't forget location of leaks can be more important than leaks themselves. Start with objective - is it comfort, control, humidity, energy... Seal high and low first. Those are typically the biggest control and energy…"

Blower Door Question

We are having a friendly (so far) discussion here on the following. When you initially run your blower door to -50pa all the holes, cracks, bypasses and any thing else connected to the outside is pulling as much air (CFM) thru it as it can at -50pa, now as you seal off those openings the CFM reading will drop accordingly to shape and size of said openings. Now the other side of discussion feels the unsealed holes will pull in more air or as they are saying pull harder or reroute the air to a…See More

Pat Dundon replied to billy g pinnick jr's discussion Blower Door Question
"Air is a gas.  Air is compressible.  It is not a liquid.  When you 'airseal' you fill holes.  Those holes have different shapes and sizes,(3 dimensionally by the way) which means different laminar flows. …"
Dec 6, 2014
Bud Poll replied to billy g pinnick jr's discussion Blower Door Question
"Hi billy, It is a trick question.  If every hole has 50 pa pressure across it, then every hole you seal will reduce the CFM50 reading precisely by the amount of air that was passing through.  The trick comes in, and I believe the reason…"

Sean Lintow Sr replied to billy g pinnick jr's discussion Blower Door Question
"The answer lies somewhere in the middle - just because you seal up X amount does not mean you will have Y amount reduction - air leakage occurs via the path of least resistance. You also have to consider what is happening outside as there is a…"
