When Should I Schedule Duct Testing?
Schedule duct testing as soon as you suspect that your ducts are in trouble. You want to recognize any such problems immediately so that you can schedule service. Here are some warning signs to keep in mind.
- Reduced energy efficiency. If your heating and cooling costs are on the rise, it may be due to leaky air ducts.
- Reduced indoor air quality. If your ducts are leaking, they can pull in pollutants and distribute them throughout your home.
- Uneven heating and cooling. Leaky ducts make it very difficult, if not impossible, to heat and cool your home evenly throughout.
- Whistling or hissing sounds. You may actually hear the sound of air leaking out of your air ducts.
How Does Duct Testing Work?
Duct testing in Nashville and Middle Tennessee is too complicated and requires too many tools to do it yourself. We’ll seal up your air ducts, and we’ll measure the air pressure in them against what the air pressure should be. That way, we can use the difference to determine if there are leaks, at which point we can go about pinpointing them.
Duct Sealing Requires a Professional Touch
If you think that you can seal air ducts with duct tape, think again! That name is not nearly as accurate as you’d think. Duct tape actually breaks down very quickly, especially with the temperature changes it would encounter on air ducts. We use special mastics in order to create a lasting seal on your ducts, and we’ll find the exact points of duct leakage to guarantee effective duct sealing.
