A home is tested at two points for enclosure air leakage
An energy rater uses a duct blower to test HVAC duct air leakage.
Builders use an infrared camera to “see” heat flow and air leakage around a window during construction.
Installing a garage exhaust fan is one important step in keeping auto exhaust and other pollutants out of the home
Moisture levels are checked in the blown cellulose insulation before enclosing the walls.

The air tightness of the garage-to-house air barrier can be tested with a blower door kit and two manometers
The moisture level of the cellulose wall insulation is tested with a moisture meter to verify that the insulation is sufficiently dry before installing drywall.
The moisture level of the wall studs is tested with a moisture meter to verify that the wood is sufficiently dry before installing drywall.
These ICF homes are blower door tested during construction, before the drywall is installed, when air leaks can be easily sealed.
