Verification and Final Testing.
Blower Door service is performed to record final airtightness results. If remediation is necessary to reach compliance, the Energy Advisor will stay on site to aid in locating areas for improvement. Data collection including mechanical systems, window and door specifications, and geometry details are reviewed. Verification of as-built house characteristics are recorded and compared to pre-construction report. Adjustments are made where necessary to reflect actual house attributes. The As-Built Compliance Report is prepared for submission to building officials prior to occupancy.
