Make sure your Charlotte HVAC system is performing at its best with our duct leakage testing service.
Ductwork is one of the very important but hidden aspects of your home’s heating and cooling system. Unless there is a very obvious problem, you probably don’t think much about your ducts. But some ducts were never sealed properly by the installers, and many more ducts develop more small openings and crevices over time. The only way to know for sure how your ducts are performing is by having duct leakage testing performed at your home in Charlotte, North Carolina.
Here are some of the problems that leaky ducts introduce to your home:
- Unhealthy air: The air in your ductwork that originates from your heating and cooling system has been filtered, usually multiple times, so it has fewer particles. If your ducts are leaking, they are letting unfiltered air into the ducts. This means that the air you are breathing is potentially contaminated with bacteria, mold spores and dust particles from the area surrounding the ducts. Reduced air quality can increase symptoms of asthma and allergies.
- Wasted money: Most modern heating and cooling systems are fairly energy-efficient, but that is only true if you do not have leaky air ducts. When your heated or cooled air is escaping the ducts before it gets to its final destination, you end up paying more money on your utility bills. It also decreases the lifespan of your HVAC systems because they must work harder to maintain the indoor temperature you choose.
