Duct performance is an integral part of ensuring your HVAC system is providing proper air flow in your place of business or home. It helps to prevent health and safety issues that stem from leaking ducts that may pick up excess moisture or airborne pollutants that can cause serious health issues. Duct performance also safeguards your heating and air conditioning system’s efficiencies by making sure that the exchange takes place when cooling or heating your living or work space.

Our commercial and residential duct performance testing is a great first step in identifying problems before they get serious. During this process, we use our duct leakage test to identify how much loss takes place with the air that passes through your duct work. Did you know that the average home or business loses close to 30% of the air that passes through their ducts? Where these losses take place are also where airborne pollutants and allergens are typically picked up. Pet Dander, Dust Mites, Asbestos, and a number of contaminants can be found in the air that is pulled through leaking duct work. This is why it’s important to test for these pollutants to prevent future health safety issues that can lead to serious complications if left untreated.
Our duct testing services will also help identify issues that may cause your system to not run efficiently. Whenever your ductwork is leaking it can cause your system to have to compensate for the losses by working even harder. This can speed up the life cycle of your HVAC system causing it to prematurely fail and become inoperable. Duct performance testing helps you find these inefficiencies so that you don’t overpay each month for energy costs as well as the unexpected surprise of having to buy a brand new HVAC unit. So call today to schedule your duct performance testing so we can help give you peace of mind in your home or business.
