Plumbing & Cooling Experts in Spring, TX

Is It Advisable to Have My Ducts Tested?

Do you use a forced air heating or air conditioning system in your home, such as a split central air conditioner, furnace or heat pump? Then we must advise you to ensure that your air ducts are in great working condition, or else you may find that heating and cooling your home in the most effective and efficient manner possible is really not a possibility in your home. Of course, you cannot really assess your air ducts on your own, as they are so largely hidden from view. That is why you may want to schedule professional duct testing in Spring, TX. Dial our number to do so. Milton Frank Plumbing will test your air ducts thoroughly and expertly.

When Should I Schedule Duct Testing?

As a general rule, it is a good idea to have your air ducts tested every few years to ensure that they are tightly sealed and functioning as intended. With all that you have on your plate, of course, some things are bound to slip through the cracks. With that in mind, you should at least remember to schedule duct testing services when signs of air leakage develop in your home. Keep an eye on your energy bills, and know that any inexplicable spikes may be due to air loss via leaky ductwork. Also, plummeting indoor air quality could be the result of your ducts distributing pollutants throughout your home due to leaks. Uneven heating and cooling also merits the attentions of a duct testing professional.

How Does It Work?

To complete your duct testing, our technicians will seal off all of the registers and vents in your forced air distribution system. We’ll then pressurize your air ducts, and take careful note of the pressure level within. If there is an incongruity between the pressure we add and that maintained therein, leaks are very likely. From there, we can go about resolving the problem. Contact us today to get started.
