US Gov Building Energy Audit - Tempest Blower Door Saves the Day - 50,000 sq ft building too large for standard Minneapolis blower door

By
Services for Real Estate Pros with Alamo Infrared Energy Audits & Building Evaluations

We performed a federal DOE Infrared Energy Audit on a large 50,000 sq ft visitor center in Utah for the Dept. of Interior - The Bear River Migratory Bird Refuge. The building, including laboratories, classrooms and offices turned out to be very airtight and well insulated. The typical 6,000 CFM Minneapolis blower door simply could not cut the bill, so we eemployed the powerful Tempest blower door and quickly reached 50 pascals. The federal building energy audit program is working and we are discovering and identifying the deficiencies in so many government buildings. Increasing the energy efficiency of these buildings will save the taxpayers an incredible amount of utility dollars.

Alamo Infrared is the oldest and largest infrared energy auditor for homes, businesses, and government buildings in the Rocky Mountain West.

I forgot to ask, where were these pictures taken?  Some look very familiar.
