Well-sealed ducts make a huge difference in your comfort and your air conditioning and heating systems’ energy efficiency levels. But how can you tell if your ducts need sealing when you cannot see inside the ventilation system that helps bring air into your home? Our duct testing specialists can let you know how much leakage is in your ducts, but first you have to recognize when this service is necessary.
You don’t get the right amount of air in one or more rooms
When only one or two rooms seems to lack in airflow and cooling, it’s probably not due to an issue within the air conditioning system. More likely, it has to do with air distribution. If one portion of ductwork is leaky, air moves into an attic or crawlspace instead of into the room that air duct leads to.
Air duct testing can determine the exact area of the leak. You will understand what you need to get your ducts back in shape, so that you get even air distribution among rooms as the system was designed.
Energy efficiency suffers
When your air ducts are leaky, you’re likely to notice a change in your monthly bills. You pay more to cool the crawlspaces in your home, while the AC continuously works to try to get your home to the right temperature. The system runs for longer and may have trouble reaching the temperature setting on the thermostat at all.
You want peace of mind
