Duct Testing in Spring, TX by Milton Frank Plumbing & Cooling

Milton Frank Plumbing & Cooling - Duct Testing

You can’t see most of the ventilation network in your home, which consists of plastic and metal ducts branching through the walls and ceilings from the heater and air conditioner to reach the room vents. Because all these ducts are hidden, it is easy to forget about them and assume they will always do their job as they were designed to.

But a loss of ductwork integrity is a common problem for homes. Your ducts may be costing you money through air leaks, and they might also be contributing to a decline in your indoor air quality. To find out if your ducts require professional sealing and other repairs, call Milton Frank Plumbing & Cooling in Spring, TX and schedule duct testing. This process uses advanced equipment to discover the state of your ducts and what work is necessary to improve them.

If you wish to have duct testing done for your home in Spring, TX or the surrounding areas, rely on the professionals at Milton Frank Plumbing & Cooling. Call us today to schedule service.

When Should I Schedule Duct Testing?

There are two times when it is advisable to arrange for professionals to test your ducts:

  • As a regular service done every few years. The pressure placed on a home’s ventilation systems is quite large, especially in place such as Texas where they handle a huge amount of work during the summer. It’s an easy matter for ducts to begin to develop air leaks that will lead to inefficient performance. (Studies have shown that you can lose up to 30% of the air moving through your ducts to leaks.) Having duct testing done every few years will help you catch problems when they are still small.
  • When you detect signs of air leakage. When there are indications that your ventilation system’s integrity has been compromised—higher heating and cooling bills, a drop in air pressure from the vents, hot and cool spots around the house, dusty and moldy–smelling air—don’t hesitate. Call for duct testing as soon as possible so you can have the leaks fixed.

How Duct Testing Is Done

Professional duct testing requires a team of professional who will seal off your ventilation system and then alter the air pressure inside it. A gauge attached to one of the vents measures the air pressure within the ducts to see how it changes. The faster the pressure declines, the more leaks the ducts have. The technicians will then be able to determine where the leaks are located and how they can best be fixed. The process should only take a few hours.
