Duct Testing & Sealing
The ducts that are part of your heating and cooling system offer one of the best opportunities to increase your energy efficiency and comfort. Studies indicate that 10%-30% of the heated or cooled air is lost, along with the money spent to heat or cool that air, through leaky ducts. Properly sized, installed and sealed ductwork will make your heating and cooling systems significantly more efficient. Energy loss isn't the only concern. Leaky ducts invite dust, mold and other pollutants into your home, causing indoor air quality issues. Find out how your ducts are performing with duct testing today.
How We Can Help
Testing the ducts will locate leaks or damage, and focus repair work in the right areas. Duct sealing or renovation should be performed if the duct system is in poor condition or improperly sized. Renovation involves replacing a significant portion of the ductwork, either to restore it to proper operation or to increase the capacity of the return air ducting. Some systems have return ducts that are too small, causing whistling filters, noisy ducts, and reduced energy efficiency. If size is not the problem, often only a portion of the ductwork needs replacement. But if the entire duct system needs to be replaced, we must correctly size the ducts and registers to ensure that the new ductwork will provide the most comfort and greatest energy efficiency.
