Platinum EarthCraft House | Final Testing – Part 3

In this video we take you through the process and testing that goes into certifying a home under the EarthCraft House program.

We will first give you a demonstration on how you can measure a home’s air leakage by conducting a blower door test, then we perform a duct blaster test on the air duct system to determine how air tight they are, and last we discuss other items that go into the final inspection.

Many of the subjects discuss here are similar to that of the Energy Star New Home Program.
