Trusted by the Southeast’s Premier Home Builders

I was looking for a blower door company that could handle our workload and could do jobs on their scheduled days. My previous blower door company could not meet our scheduled days. My experience with working with Raymond and his team is fantastic; always on time and meeting our scheduled appointments.”

South Carolina Energy Code Requirements

Since 2013, the 2009 International Energy Conservation Code (IECC) was adopted. This requires all new homes in South Carolina to get a duct pressurization test by a certified DET Verifier before a Certificate of Occupancy can be issued.

This includes testing ducts outside the building envelope and the areas in unconditioned spaces. Some municipalities also require Blower Door Testing.

Requirements

  • Blower Door testing requirements are 7 air changes per hour or less at 50 Pascals (ACH50).
  • Duct leakage outside the envelope: less than 12 cubic feet per minute per 100 square feet.

North Carolina Energy Code Requirements

Since 2019, the 2018 North Carolina Energy Conservation Code (NCECC) was adopted. This requires all new homes in North Carolina to get a visual air leakage inspection by the Builder or a third-party inspector like Myrtle Blower Door.

Duct testing is mandatory but not required for systems conditioning less than 750 square feet. Blower Door Testing is currently optional in North Carolina.
