TEC Minneapolis Advanced Home Performance Kit

The best testing systems designed specifically for testing leakage and checking ductwork for code compliance and energy rating.

This Kit includes the TEC Minneapolis Blower Door and the TEC Minneapolis Duct Blaster System with both the DG-1000 and DG-8 Digital Gauges.

Minneapolis Blower Door System

The blower door fan consists of a molded fan housing with a 3/4 horsepower permanent split capacitor AC motor. Air flow through the fan is determined by measuring the pressure at the flow sensor which is attached to the end of the motor. When the fan is operating, air is pulled into the inlet side of the fan and exits through the exhaust side (a metal fan guard is bolted to the exhaust side of the fan). The blower door fan can accurately measure airflow over a wide range of flow rates using a series of calibrated flow rings which are attached to the inlet of the fan.


  • Lightweight, rugged, injection molded fan housing
  • Precise, stable flow measurements without the need for gauge dampening
  • The Model 3 Fan provides quick and accurate flow measurements from 300 to 6,100 CFM (includes Flow Rings A and B)
  • Optional Flow Rings C, D and E will measure down to 11 CFM
  • Variable fan speed control (solid state - cruise control compatible)
  • Operates on 110V/60 Hz

Minneapolis Duct Blaster System

Need to test your ducts for leakage? Use the original Minneapolis Duct Blaster for quick easy and accurate results. Performance testing of HVAC duct systems is now required across a large part of the country as duct leakage accounts for significant energy losses, comfort and IAQ problems. Identify and quantify these problems quickly and easily by connecting the Minneapolis Duct Blaster to a central return or the air handler cabinet, tape off or cover the remaining register or grills and use the Duct Blaster to measure leakage or air tightness by either pressurizing or depressurizing the entire duct system. Airflow through the fan is measured by pressure drop with a high accuracy DG1000 manometer.

Duct air-tightness measurements are used to diagnose and demonstrate leakage problems, estimate efficiency losses from duct leakage, and certify compliance with duct leakage standards such as California's Title 24 Building Energy Efficiency Standards.


  • The lightweight Duct Blaster fan weighs just 7 pounds, but delivers enough air flow (an amazing 1,500 CFM) to test the leakiest duct systems.
  • Quick and accurate air-tightness measurements from 20 - 1,500 CFM.
  • Compatible for both pressurization and depressurization testing.
  • The Duct Blaster can be easily used in new construction applications where a Blower Door can't be used (e.g. before sheet rock is installed).
  • The Duct Blaster can also be used as a powered flow hood to accurately measure air flows through the air handler fan, registers and grilles, and exhaust fans.
  • Variable fan speed control (solid state).
  • Padded nylon carrying case with shoulder strap.
  • 2 Year Manufacturer's Warranty.

TEC Minneapolis DG-8 Single Channel Digital Pressure Gauge Kit with BlueTooth

TEC has created an easy-to-use single channel pressure gauge in a compact package with the same focus on accuracy and reliability found in the entire TEC line of diagnostic products. The DG-8 is a convenient and cost-effective choice for making key building pressure measurements, including room pressures as a part of air balancing, exhaust fan flow readings, pressure pan testing, zonal pressure diagnostics, CAZ depressurization and draft testing, radon sub-slab, external static pressure and many more. The competitive price point of the DG-8 makes TEC accuracy more accessible than ever before.

The DG-8 provides highly accurate single-channel pressure measurements and is designed to support professionals who use manometers and micro-manometers today. This includes weatherization professionals, energy raters, home performance contractors, HVAC technicians, radon mitigation professionals, hospital building facilities personnel and others.

The DG-8 is simple to use and provides accurate readings even at very low pressures. The large readout on a backlit color display, durable case and Bluetooth communication make the DG-8 a highly versatile tool for a variety of applications.
