Duct Testing in Columbia, SC by Fulmer Heating & Cooling
Duct sealing is a vital part of keeping your ducts in good condition. The US Department of Energy estimates that forced air systems (which account for the majority of heating and air conditioning systems used in the country) lose as much as 30% of their total output to duct leaks. That’s a massive amount of the output that you’re paying for being completely wasted due to duct leaks. These leaks need to be sealed in order to return that output to you, and keep you more comfortable. Before the leaks can be sealed, though, they have to be found. That’s where duct testing comes in. Fulmer Heating & Cooling offers a full range of duct testing services throughout Columbia, SC. If you need duct testing services of any kind, call us today and schedule an appointment.

Why You Need Duct Testing
As mentioned above, duct sealing is a vital part of keeping your climate control systems operating as efficiently as possible. The problem is that, because of where your ducts are likely located, you can’t exactly easily walk around and visually identify any leaks in the system. Professionals don’t waste time doing that, either. At least, not at first. But, to conduct proper duct testing you’re going to need a fair amount of specialized equipment. That’s why you should trust us to handle your duct testing for you. We’ll make sure that everything goes as smoothly as possible.
The Process of Duct Testing
There are a few different ways to test a home’s ducts for leaks. The most common way is to seal off all the vents in the system, then use a blower fan to either pressurize or depressurize the entire ductwork. The rate of normalization of pressure is then measured in the ducts. How fast or slowly the ducts return to normal pressure provides a reliable estimate of how many leaks are present in the system. Once as much information is collected as possible, the ducts can be more thoroughly searched to find the leaks and begin sealing them. Duct testing is necessary for proper duct sealing
