Do you know if your HVAC ductwork is sealed properly? Improperly sealed ducts can negatively affect the performance of your air conditioning system and delivering the cool air where you want it in your Boca Raton, Coral Springs, Fort Lauderdale, Hollywood, Pompano Beach, and the surrounding area home. Correcting this starts with a duct leakage test performed by RMI Inspection Services. When you know where the leaks are in your ductwork then you can seal these up so that the conditioned air gets to where you want it to go. This allows your system to run more efficiently and to save you money. Contact us today to schedule your duct leakage test.

How a Duct Leakage Test Works

When you bring our team in for a duct leakage test you will see that we seal off all of the vents in your ductwork. Just like a blower door test, we need to see where the leaks are in your system and control the volume of air that is moving through the system. This will also provide us with the rate of duct leakage in the system and we will be able to find where the problem leaks are to seal these up and make your ductwork operate much more efficiently.

Once your ducts have been tested and sealed, this will provide a number of benefits. You will no longer be wasting energy on heating or cooling as all of the conditioned air is getting to the different rooms in the home. Your equipment will also not have to work as hard to move the conditioned air around the building, leading to a savings in the wear and tear on the equipment.

Duct Leakage Test For Any Age Home

Just because you have a new home doesn’t mean that your ducts are fully sealed, just like having a 40 year old home doesn’t mean that your ducts are like swiss cheese. Any home could benefit from having a duct leakage test which will result in a savings on an ongoing basis for the energy required to condition the air as well as move it around the ducts. You should also notice that your indoor air quality is also a bit better since there are no gaps for the air to get into or out of.

Moving conditioned air to the right places in your home or building is important. Losing the conditioned air along the way means that your equipment must work harder and longer to do the job. You can make your home in Boca Raton, Coral Springs, Fort Lauderdale, Hollywood, Pompano Beach, and the surrounding area more energy efficient with a duct leakage test.
