HVAC Duct Performance

Duct performance testing is an integral part of ensuring your HVAC system is providing proper air flow in your home or business. It helps to detect and prevent health and safety issues that can stem from leaky ducts that may pick up excess moisture or airborne pollutants that cause serious health issues. Duct performance testing also safeguards your heating and air conditioning system’s efficiency level by making sure that your ventilation system isn’t losing any air inside your walls or crawl spaces when cooling or heating your home or workspace. Our experts at Bradley Mechanical specialize in ventilation and ductwork to make sure your HVAC system continues to operate efficiently and to prevent any future system failure. We provide duct performance services and testing for homeowners and businesses in Richmond, Midlothian, Chesterfield, and the surrounding areas. With nearly 50 years of experience, Bradley Mechanical is the brand you can trust!

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 ductwork. 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. When your ductwork is leaking it causes 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 on 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. We can help give you peace of mind in your home or business.
