Test and Seal Your Ducts for Greater Heating Efficiency

Do you use a forced air heating system, like a furnace or a heat pump, to keep your home comfortable when the temperature drops? If so, you need the ductwork that this system uses to distribute heated air throughout your home to function properly. If your air ducts are leaking, then there is no way that you’ll enjoy the effective, efficient heating experience that you deserve.

We offer duct testing services that will pinpoint the source of problems with your air ducts, should there be any causing trouble. If so, we can also handle your duct sealing in Chapin, SC. Contact us today for more details.

The First Step Is Detection via Testing

Obviously, your ductwork is not exactly an exposed system. If you suspect that there are problems with your ductwork, you don’t want your technicians to go into the process of resolving those problems blind. Professional duct testing is necessary to determine the extent of the problem, as well as if there definitely is a problem to begin with.

By sealing off your air ducts and using a calibrated fan to determine the rate of pressure normalization, our technicians can figure out just what kind of shape your air ducts are in. We can then hone in on existing problems. Once we have, we take the next step in the correction process.

Effectively Sealing Ductwork Demands Professional Service

First things first, we have to remind you that only a trained professional can effectively seal your ductwork. No, that roll of duct tape is not going to do the job. Duct tape is actually not used in the duct sealing process, as it degrades rapidly.

Instead, we seal duct leaks with mastic that hardens as it dries. This creates a durable, long-lasting seal. Now, your air ducts aren’t going to leak heated or cooled air into areas where it is not needed, and pollutants won’t be able to enter the system via the leaks.
