What Is Duct Testing?
Professional duct testing is a process that uses calibrated fans and measuring devices to test your home’s ductwork for leaks. The testing process is very similar to the tests Paul Bunyan Plumbing And Drains use when searching for water leaks in your home’s water lines. The air pressure is measured, and losses are tracked to locate duct leaks that allow your heated or cooled air to escape either into random areas of your home or outdoors.
The Potential Cost of Duct Leaks
Fortunately, unlike plumbing leaks that can create significant and costly water damage to your home, duct leaks do not pose a threat to damage to your home; but they do represent a considerable waste of heated or cooled air, and by extension, a substantial waste of your money. About half of the average home’s utility bill is dedicated to heating and cooling. Of that money, experts estimate about 30% of it is wasted due to leaks in the home’s ductwork, but the good news is that you can eliminate these costly leaks just by calling the Blue Ox team for a very affordable Aeroseal Duct Sealing Service.
A Scary Hazard of Duct Leaks
There are some potential health risks related to duct leaks that are concerning. When there are leaks in your home’s ductwork, there is a potential for contamination. As your heated and cooled air travels through the ducts in your home it can gather dust, mold spores, and other pollutants drawn into the ducts through the air leaks. The forced air from your HVAC system creates suction at the location of the leaks, drawing in contaminants. The result can be increased allergy symptoms, breathing difficulties, and even respiratory infections and other serious health complications.
