Why You Need Duct Testing and Duct Sealing
Ductwork wears down over time, and it can also suffer from damage due to insects, construction, humidity, and more. It’s common for ducts to begin leaking after a few years. But why is this a big deal? Because even small leaks will cause a drop in air pressure inside the ventilation system, leading to a decline in HVAC performance and issues such as:
- Low airflow from the vents, causing a drop in comfort.
- A rise in energy costs because up to 30% of air that’s already been heated or cooled is going to waste in places like the attic or between the walls.
- Extra strain on the HVAC system and possible damage.
- Dust and other debris entering the leaks and getting into the air in your living space.
Only professional duct testing can find out the extent of the leaking and how to approach it. It also requires professionals with the best equipment to successfully seal the ductwork for an airtight ventilation system.
When to Schedule Duct Testing
The ductwork of your house is difficult to see, so how will you know it’s time to call our technicians to test them? There are several signs you can watch for that will warn you something is wrong with the ducts. A large rise in heating and cooling costs without an explanation is one of the biggest warnings. Other signs to look for: weak airflow coming from room vents, musty and moldy odors from the vents, the AC or heater running longer than normal, uneven heating and cooling around the house.
We also recommend duct testing on a regular schedule. Testing done every five years can help head off bigger problems. If you have recently purchased a home, make duct testing a priority service.
Duct Sealing from Professionals in Denver, CO
You cannot use duct tape or any other store-bought tools to seal your ducts. Even finding and accessing the leaks in the ductwork is difficult unless you are a professional. Let our technicians take care of the job, starting with testing for duct leakage and finishing with sealing. We’ll use professional-grade tools such as mastic sealant and metallic tapes. Once we’re done with the sealing, we’ll re-test the ducts to see that we’ve made the ventilation system airtight.
