If you have a furnace, air conditioning system or heat pump, you have duct work delivering the heat or cool air to the rooms in your house. In Florida the condition of those ducts can play a major role in how much electricity you pay to heat or cool your home each month.
The major goal of duct testing is to assess whether there is any air being lost. Duct testing focuses on pressurizing the ducts themselves. All ducts registers and grills are sealed off for the test. Then a fan with calibrated pressure gauges delivers a gentle flow of air into the sealed duct system. The pressure gauges then read how much pressure is escaping from system. If a system is to leaky we can perform a Air Duct Fog Test
Leaky return ducts in unconditioned space or garages can allow hot attic air or fumes from your garage to enter your duct system and contaminate the air in your home.
Contractors get your ducts checked after installation and receive energy credits, cover any building codes in your area, and prevent from having call backs on cooling issues due to leaks. Use duct test reports as a selling point for your energy efficient home. Ask about the builders packages and other services.
