The Problems With Duct Leakage
You may find it easy to dismiss "a few leaks" in the ducts. But you shouldn’t. Even a few small gaps and holes in ductwork ruin the airtight seal of the ventilation system. Without that seal, the ventilation system cannot maintain air pressure along its length. When air pressure drops, it causes a decline in the airflow from the system, leading to a steep drop in comfort around the house.
This isn’t the only problem. Loss of the air moving through the ductwork—which can be up to 30% with leaks—means the air conditioning and heating system must make up for that loss. You can end up paying a third more than you should for home comfort because that much air escapes to places like the attic and between the walls. The gaps can also allow dust and dirt into the ductwork and lead to damage to the AC and heater. Those "small" leaks add up to big costs.
Scheduling Duct Testing Services
In order to schedule duct testing, you need to have some idea your house needs this service. We recommend having duct testing done as a routine precaution every five years or so, even if you don’t have other suspicions of breached ducts. You should arrange for testing when warning signs such as the following come up:
- A steep rise in heating and cooling costs
- Uneven heating and cooling around the house
- Musty and moldy odors from the ductwork
- Changes in humidity levels
- Rattling sounds from the ductwork
Our technicians will use the best equipment to test the integrity of the ductwork and find out what work we need to do.
