What is a blower door test?

A blower door is used to measure how airtight a house is.  It is a powerful fan that mounts into the frame of an exterior door.  The fan pulls air out of the house causing outside air to flow in through unsealed cracks and openings. The the technicians may use a smoke pencil to detect air leaks or, depending on the size of the leak, you may feel a draft caused by the changes in pressure.
