Often, energy efficiency measures are handled by contractors, which are too often focused on selling a particular product with a one-size-fits-all approach to windows, insulation, siding, and heating and air conditioning. New Time’s scientific, whole-house approach is solution based, not product based. We provide unbiased guidance to improve your home’s energy efficiency by using state-of-the-art diagnostic equipment and a don’t-fix-what-isn’t-broke philosophy.
The blower door test allows us to quantify the air infiltration rate of your home. When you condition the air in your home, that air immediately begins to escape out through leaks in the envelope of the building. It’s important to know how frequently the entire volume of air in your home is exchanges or leaked to the outside. The more frequently the air is exchanged, the more frequently that volume of air needs to be reconditioned. Studies have shown that leaks in the envelope of your home can allow the entire volume of air to escape as often as every half hour. The Blower Door Test, by pressurizing or depressurizing the house, tells us the exact air exchange rate of your home, and also pinpoints the locations of the leaks, allowing us to make precise recommendations on sealing the envelope. Stopping air infiltration can lower heating and cooling costs by up to 40%: as a result of containing the conditioned air in your home for a longer period.
