Blower Door Test with Vermiculite in Attic

Hey all,

I had an energy evaluator guy come in. He checked the attic and knew we had vermiculite in there, but then he performed the blower test anyway. I thought about it but didn't really get worried until after he was done. What should we do? Could it have sucked asbestos into the living area?

Blower Door Test with Vermiculite in Attic

VERY unlikely. you don't have ducts in the attic and you have vapor barrier separating the attic from the rest of the house ( I hope).
