How Can We Help You?

Air Barrier Testing Of Grocery Store (New Building)

Air Barrier Testing Of Grocery Store (New Building)

In December 2012, we performed air barrier testing and a building envelope scan at a new grocery store in Texas. The goal of the project was to help the client identify areas where they could improve the energy efficiency of their buildings so they could implement better strategies in upcoming projects.


We performed air barrier testing at this grocery story to identify any air leaks.

Grocery Stores Provide a Unique Challenge for Air Barrier Testing

Grocery stories and other similar buildings can be challenging due to unique penetrations, delivery doors,  mechanical equipment on the roof and other challenges.
Grocery store Leak Identification

Smoke Was Used To Identify Air Leaks

When trying to identify air leaks, it may be possible to use just 3 fans or 6 fans to create the necessary  pressure difference.   However, if testing to the Army Corps Of Engineer specs it would take 9-12 fans to properly pressurize or depressurize the building.
Grocery store Energy Audit
All of our inspections are performed by a Level 2 or Level 3 certified infrared thermographer and our air barrier testing technicians have years of experience testing commercial buildings.
We also perform Energy Audits of commercial buildings including grocery stores, office buildings, manufacturing facilities, churches and much more.
