When to Schedule Professional Duct Testing
If your air conditioner won’t start up or if your heater is blowing cold air throughout the house, it is pretty obvious that there is a problem requiring professional repair services. Your ductwork is a bit more elusive, though. You cannot see it, for the most part, which rules out any substantive visual inspection. Plus, you really wouldn’t know what to look for, as even minor leaks can lead to real trouble. That is why you must pay attention to the warning signs that your air ducts are in trouble. Should you notice any, it is time to schedule professional duct testing in Canton, GA immediately.
Because all of your heated and cooled air must travel throughout this ductwork, you may find that your heating and cooling bills skyrocket when it is compromised. Not only will professional duct testing tell you for sure whether your ductwork is in trouble, but it will also allow your ductwork technician to pinpoint the source of the problem and to resolve it completely. Subpar indoor air quality is another good indicator that your air ducts are in poor shape, as cracks, tears, and leaks can allow pollutants to make their way into your system. Once they do, your ductwork can distribute them throughout the house. Duct testing will give us the information that we need to take the next step in restoring your ductwork to its former glory.
How Professional Duct Testing Works
You cannot hope to complete your duct testing on your own, as it requires specialized equipment and a trained professional to evaluate the results of the testing procedure. Your ductwork must be sealed off, so that no air can escape from the vents throughout your home. The air ducts must then be pressurized to a set level. Should the pressure drop, your technician will be able to narrow down the point of any leaks in the system allowing air to escape. Then we can determine whether further action is needed, whether you need to have your ductwork replaced, or if repairs are possible.
There is far too much at risk to take any chances with your ductwork. When your air ducts are in great working condition, you’ll enjoy improved indoor air quality throughout your home. You will also be able to heat and cool your home with the efficiency that you deserve.
