When to Schedule Your Duct Services
There are a number of signs that suggest you’re overdue for duct testing and duct sealing services. Be on the lookout for:
- Increased heating and cooling costs: Duct leakage can cause your ducts to pull air from unconditioned areas of your home into them. This forces your HVAC systems to work harder than normal to meet and maintain your target temperature.
- Poor indoor air quality: If your ducts are leaking, they can easily be infiltrated by various airborne contaminants. These contaminants can then be expelled into your home, reducing your indoor air quality. Not only will this affect your comfort, but it can also put your health at risk.
- Uneven temperatures: One of the most obvious signs of a potential ductwork problem is hot or cold spots popping up throughout your home. When a duct tasked with heating and cooling a particular area of your home isn’t in good shape, that area is not likely going to be so comfortable.
Schedule Duct Testing with Us!
Our qualified technicians use specialized equipment to perform our duct testing services. We will thoroughly inspect and evaluate your ventilation system and make recommendations to maximize efficiency and improve your comfort.
The process involves first sealing off the ventilation system by closing off all the room vents and registers. Next, our technicians will attach a special power vacuum onto the ventilation system to create high air pressure within the ducts. We then use a device called a manometer to measure the pressure levels inside the ducts to see how much it drops and at what rate. Our technicians will then use this data to find and repair the damaged or leaking ducts.
Let Us Seal Your Ducts
Once our team has found the damaged ducts in your home, we will then begin sealing them. Our technicians use a mastic sealant to guarantee that weak spots are effectively sealed and remain sealed for years to come.
Duct sealing is not a service you can perform on your own. We understand that many homeowners may be tempted to use duct tape, for obvious reasons. However, duct tape is not nearly strong enough to fix a leaky duct.
