Air Tightness Testing

A duct leakage tester consists of a calibrated fan for measuring an air flow rate and a pressure sensing device to measure the pressure created by the fan flow. The combination of pressure and fan flow measurements are used to determine the ductwork airtightness. The airtightness of ductwork is useful knowledge when trying to improve energy conservation.

Air Tightest Testing
Efficiency is great way to lower utility costs. Did you know that every 1/2″ of duct leakage can equate to over 30 square inches of house leakage? What does that mean? It means just a small crack in the ductwork can be like leaving a window open all year round. Because of the high pressure of air moving through the ductwork, it makes quick work of wasting the cool/warm air you’re paying for. 
Let our experts help improve your systems effectiveness by testing and sealing the ductwork. If leaks in the system exist you can count on waste in your monthly utilities. By sealing and cleaning ductwork as well as maintaining or cleaning your units, air quality and performance offer an improved overall system.

Blower Door Testing
We may recommend a diagnostic test using an instrument called an Infiltrometer blower door to precisely measure your home’s “air infiltration” rate and identifies the major energy leaks: where hot or cold outside air enters and your conditioned air escapes.
