Duct Leakage Testing

leaky-ductsIf you had the chance to reduce your power bill and increase the quality of the air in your home or workplace, wouldn’t you take advantage of it? One trip to your home or office with our state-of-the-art Air Duct Leakage Tester will get to the bottom of a variety of problems that may be occurring invisibly all around you. With our Duct Leakage Testing, you’ll be able to…

REDUCE YOUR ENERGY BILLS

Studies show that up to 30 percent of heated or cooled air gets lost in leaky ducts, a problem caused by poor connects or deterioration. Yet, in most cases, there is no way to tell without testing. In the summer, even a small leak means hot air invades your air-conditioning system as cool air escapes. The opposite is true in the winter. The result is a system that’s fighting itself, and that’s not economical. A properly operating air system is what our Air Duct Leakage Tester ensures you’ll have.

A leaky, inefficient heating and cooling system not only stresses you out, it causes unnecessary wear and tear on your air units. Leaks in ducts means depressurization in your living or work space, which means the heating or cooling system works harder every minute that it’s on, thus threatening its longevity. If you hate energy bills, wait till you have to pay for a new unit!

BREATHE CLEANER INDOOR AIR

The ducts not only transport air to and from your heating and cooling systems, they protect it. If there are small leaks or large gaps in your ducts, outside air is coming in. Whether it’s hot, cold, stale or polluted air, there’s nothing good about that. The foreign contributor to your breathing environment could be a crawl space, attic or even combusted air coming from a gas furnace, clothes dryer or water heater. Whatever the case, you don’t want polluted air being picked up by your heating and cooling systems and distributed throughout your home or office.

INCREASE YOUR COMFORT

On top of having lower power bills, more efficient heating and cooling systems, and breathing healthier air, you’ll be assured that your family, employees, tenants or customers will be more comfortable in each room. An air-tight duct system is a steady, reliable system.

WHO NEEDS DUCT LEAKAGE TESTING?

Duct testing can be performed anytime, but an especially crucial time to check your ducts is when a new heating or air conditioning unit is being installed. You don’t want a brand-new unit pumping air through questionable ducts. Duct testing is also recommended during a seasonal diagnostic tune-up of a unit. A good tune-up will make your systems more efficient, but never 100 percent if you have leaky ducts.

WHAT QUALIFIED TECHNICIANS DO

One of our qualified technicians will hook up the specially calibrated Duct Leakage Tester to your duct system, measuring the amount of lost pressure. Our technician will then come up with a diagnosis you can trust, pinpointing how simple or severe the problem is. We will tell you what corrective actions need to take place and provide a bid for the repair.
