Duct testing is necessary when you either suspect or know for certain that your air ducts are allowing conditioned air to leak, or outside air to get in.
Your air ducts are what your central heating and air conditioning systems rely on to effectively do their jobs. They either cool or heat the air, and then blow that conditioned air through your network of ducts into the various rooms of your home. This ductwork system is most often located out of sight—behind walls, in the attic, and in other out-of-the-way locations that allow them to do their jobs without getting in your way.
However, this can certainly make it difficult to detect or spot when leaks or other duct problems happen. The good news is that our team can address the problem by performing professional duct testing to determine where your leak is coming from. But first, you’d have to know that you have leaky ductwork. We’ll get down to that below. First we want to talk to you a bit about how leaks happen and why they’re such a problem.
