Are your ducts in need of repair? The majority of ducts have leaks, according to experts, and it's possible that your ducts are responsible for an unnecessary addition to your monthly bills. Leaky ductwork moves air to attics and other spaces of the home that no one actually inhabits. This means an increase in your bills, a lack of airflow around the home, and potential problems with your heater or air conditioner. But duct leaks are not always so apparent in a home.
Because your ducts wind through unoccupied areas of the home, the tiny holes they develop over time remain hidden as well. But repairing these can save you a lot of money on your heating and cooling bills. When you contact a professional for duct testing service, you can discover whether you have a major issue with duct leaks and make a plan to get the problem under control.

Cracks and holes are present in a majority of duct systems in homes across the U.S. In some cases, the level of leakage is so minor that it is not very noticeable. However, you may notice a few different symptoms if your ducts are poorly sealed and insulated. Look out for the following signs that your ducts deserve professional attention:
When a professional tests your air ducts for leaks, they will determine the level of leakage in your ductwork and whether or not this is acceptable or if you need to schedule repairs. Most of the time, they use air pressure tests as a diagnostic tool. First, they seal off all of your home's vents and install the duct leakage testing equipment at an opening. A calibrated fan pressurizes the ducts and measures the airflow and pressure. The level of airtightness will allow a technician to determine whether or not you can benefit from duct sealing and what type of equipment should be used for the job.
