I have a Energy or Enclosure Integrity Test to perform.  How many fans do I need to properly run the test?  Do I have enough fans to run the test?​

Then, scoll down to the Tester Tools section and download either the Blower Door or Enclosure Integrity version of the Number of Fans Calculator

Next, open the file in excel and "Enable Editing" when a security warning appears.

Fill in all the fields highlighted in blue.  The number of fan results are highlighted in green.
