Smoke testing refers to various classes of tests of systems, usually intended to determine whether they are ready for more robust testing. You may already know where some air leakage occurs in your home, such as an under-the-door draft, but you'll need to find the less obvious gaps to properly air seal your home. For a thorough and accurate measurement of air leakage in machines, hire a qualified technician to conduct an energy audit, particularly a smoke test. A smoke test, which depressurizes industries, can reveal the locations of many leaks. A complete energy assessment will also help determine areas in your equipment’s or machines that need more insulation.
If you are having difficulty locating leaks, you may want to conduct a basic building pressurization test to increase infiltration through cracks and leaks, making them easier to detect. Smoke Testing has eliminated the need for tedious and time consuming soaping techniques.
