Duct Testing

Ducts are used to distribute conditioned air throughout homes with forced-air heating and cooling systems. In typical homes, about 20% of the air that moves through the duct system is lost due to leaks, holes, and poorly connected ducts. The result is an inefficient HVAC system, high utility bills, and difficulty keeping the home comfortable, no matter the thermostat setting.

Duct air tightness measurements are used to diagnose and demonstrate leakage problems, estimate efficiency losses from duct leakage, and certify compliance with duct leakage standards such as California’s Title 24 Building Energy Efficiency Standards.
