Now compatible with the TEC DG-1000!
TECTITE 4.0 (WiFi) is The Energy Conservatory’s building airtightness test analysis programs for Windows-based computers. TECTITE makes it easier than ever to conduct fully automated blower door tests, and to analyze and store blower door test data.
The program’s built-in report generator and graphing capabilities makes it simple for you document and present the results of a blower door test to a homeowner or client. The programs is compatible with manual blower door testing (i.e. manual data entry), and fully automated tests using the DG-1000 or DG-700 Pressure and Flow Gauge.
Features of TECTITE 4.0 (WiFi)
- Designed specifically for use with Minneapolis Blower Door systems.
- Easy entry of all test settings and building information, and quick report generation.
- Calculation and display of building airtightness test results including CFM50, air changes per hour, leakage areas, and building leakage curve.
- Manual data entry mode allows you to easily enter manually collected test data.
- Automated testing feature provides computerized control of Blower Door fan and automated flow and pressure measurements.
- Reduces operator error, eliminates time spent zeroing gauges, and ensures that tests are conducted the same way every time.
- “Pause Feature” allows the automated test to be temporarily paused and then re-started at the pause point.
- Semi-auto test option allows computerized data collection while manually controlling the Blower Door fan.
