Accurate Duct Testing from a Team You Can Trust
Is your ductwork leaking conditioned air into unoccupied spaces of your home? Or is the poor indoor air quality of your living space caused by damaged or dirty ductwork? The only way you can discover the answers to these questions is through professional duct testing.
Our Havertown, PA service professionals perform this complex process using high-end equipment, and we are trained on how to use that equipment and analyze its data. But how do you know if you should even schedule duct testing services?
If you’ve never had it before, or if you notice any of the following signs, now is a great time to call for duct testing!
- Higher than Average Heating and Cooling Bills: If your utility bills are significantly higher than what you paid this time last year, then it’s a sign your heating or cooling system isn’t working as efficiently as it used to. Duct leakage may be to blame!
- Musty Odors from the Vents: Air duct leakage not only releases dust and debris into your home, but also draws in moisture and particles from wherever your ductwork is installed—such as your attic or between walls. Eventually, this will create a detectable must odor coming through your vents.
- A Decline in Airflow: Check on the airflow coming from your various room vents. If it seems sluggish, it could very well be from a drop in ductwork integrity.
When You Are in Need of Duct Sealing
After our Havertown professionals conduct professional duct testing, we’ll use the results to determine what the next best steps to take are. In many scenarios, the damage to your ductwork can be relatively minor, but absolutely enough to impact the quality of cooling or heating you’re receiving. This is where professional duct sealing comes in.
Entailing the use of special, commercial grade mastic sealant, duct sealing takes care of superficial damage like pinhole leaks or small tears that have occurred over time to your ductwork. It’s important to note, here, that store-bought duct tape is not an adequate resolution for duct sealing. It is, unfortunately, not appropriately named.
Do You Need Duct Repair or Duct Replacement?
It can be hard to determine this on your own, but that’s what we’re here for! For more severe ductwork damage, duct sealing may not be enough. Duct repair is needed when you have breaches like gaping holes or loose connections—either or both of which can occur if the ducts aren’t properly installed to begin with, or if construction is done around them.
If the problem with your ducts is improper installation, it may often be best to go with a duct replacement, to restore full efficiency to your HVAC system. Whether you do need a quick repair or a more thorough duct replacement, we are the team to call!
