Feedback from the Field

A DM32 user in Atlanta, GA asked "On the DM32 smart gauge-why is the DucTester listed under Blower Door devices?"  


A: The DucTester is listed under Blower Doors because when the DucTester is used to as a blower door it has different flow curves.  

Notice the icon of the 200/300 do not have a flex duct, this means its being used as a Blower Door. Under Retrotec DucTesters, it's labeled 240/340 and the DucTesters have a flex duct in the icon.


Retrotec customer testimonal
The Retrotec DucTester is an astounding piece of equipment. This equipment mitigates the time it takes to complete set up and eliminates the befuddlement and embarrassment of setting it up wrong, due to the color coordination of the Umbilical. Thanks for making our jobs easier. Using the DM32-Channel Digital Manometer for ACH as well as with the phone app where we can go from room to room determining pressure differences without running back to the gauge, is awesome!  Can't thank you enough.
