Did you know that before you can move into a newly built home, your house must pass an ACH50 test? ACH50 stands for air changes per hour at 50 pascals. The test measures the amount of airflow in your living space to determine how energy-efficient your home is. Apex Residential Services, LLC provides these tests to new homeowners in the central New York area.

During the ACH50 test, we'll depressurize your home to find out how much air leakage is occurring. Once the pressure reaches a differential of negative 50 pascals, we'll measure the cubic feet per minute (CFM). This new measurement gives us an accurate amount of air leakage in your home. The terms we use to describe the results are tight, moderate and leaky. The tighter your home, the better.
While this may sound confusing, it's essential to perform before you can receive a certificate of occupancy. We offer air testing services in central New York, Herkimer, New Hartford and Utica, NY.
