Duct Testing in Stuart, FL by Breathe Healthier Air
The air ducts in your home are more fragile than you might guess. Over the years, ductwork can form holes and cracks, or it can deteriorate from all of the air pressure it has been subjected to. Air and heat loss that results from leaks in the air ducts can reduce the energy efficiency of your heating and cooling system by as much as 10-30%. In other words, leaks force you to pay to heat and cool unoccupied areas of the home (like the attic), and there is a high chance that there is at least some level of duct leakage in your HVAC system.
Schedule duct testing with a trained HVAC professional to find out if this is a problem in your home. A technician will use industry-grade equipment to determine how leaky the ducts are and whether further action should be taken to seal them off. Then, you can schedule additional sealing and repair services. Breathe Healthier Air is happy to perform duct testing services with a new air conditioning or heating system installation or any time you suspect your ducts are leaking. We are a trusted source for HVAC services.

When Should You Schedule Duct Testing?
You may schedule duct testing at any time if you suspect a leak in your air ducts. Here are some situations we think call for a visit from a technician to check the state of your ductwork.
- Installing a New Unit: When you are installing a new air conditioning or heating unit, you want it to perform properly and run efficiently, but it cannot hit peak performance levels if there are leaks in your ducts. Have one of our technicians test your ducts before the installation begins.
- High Energy Bills: This could be a sign of a broken air conditioning system, or it could mean that air is leaking through holes in the ducts.
- Poor Indoor Air Quality: Cracks in the ductwork may allow insulation materials, dust, or other contaminants to move through your air ducts, decreasing the quality of the air in your home.
The Process of Duct Testing
When you schedule duct testing services with a qualified professional, your technician will seal up the vents and use a fan to pressurize the air ducts and determine how much air is leaking from the system. If the duct leakage rate is not within an acceptable limit, your technician will advise repairs or sealing services to rectify the issue. Our technicians can also use video cameras to find the location of leaks and look for mold and excessive dirt in the ducts.
