@ December 27, 2002 12:47 PM in Blower door test/ draftsThanks for your replys. What would i expect to pay for blower door tests and IR video? Anyone you can reccomend in West. Mass? I would use a dedicated air sourse for the stove, would really like to elimanate the cold cold air coming in through the stove island and bathroom. Will these tests do anything to give accurate information for heat loss caculations? Thanks again all.
@ December 26, 2002 12:13 PM in Blower door test/ draftsHello Wallies, I've been enjoying all of the excellant disscussions here on the wall for the past year and a half. I'm a HO with a 1976 cape built with r19 in the walls and r30 in the attic, Its electric heat with a wood stove, and we burn wood for heat. There are wicked drafts in the house which seem to be coming from the "8 vented through the floor to the outside stove island in the kitchen and from the bathroom vent which has a heating element in it to blow heat if wanted. I want to convert the house to radiant floor heat and before doing that I want to fix the leaks. I'm thinking of a blower door test to see where all the leaks are and am wondering if winter is better than summer to do the test? Also will a wood stove create signafant drafts indoors? And will a blower door test be helpfull in doing an accurate heat loss caculation? Thanks for your help.
