A blower door test is mandatory for code compliance in new construction and additions over 450 sqft; it's the last step before your final inspection. If you don't pass your blower door test, you don't pass your inspection.
The number one cause of energy loss is air leakage. It doesn't matter how well insulated your home is, if there are any leaks in your home, you'll have cold spots and air leakage. A blower door test determines where the air leaks and drafts are in your home so you can repair them.
You need a blower door test if you are doing new construction (and want to pass your final inspection), or you want to properly insulate and seal your home to save on your energy bill.
Can you smell smoke inside your home when there are wildfires outside or your neighbor is barbecuing? If so, that means you have air leaks and the quality of the air in your home is compromised. Protect yourself and your loved ones by sealing the air leaks.
WA state energy code requires that all new construction (and additions over 450 sqft) pass a blower door test in order for an inspector to sign off on your final inspection. No blower door test, no passed home inspection.
