Duct System Efficiency Testing
While most homeowners don't see the air ducts snaking their way through your home, the ductwork of your HVAC systems is a vital component. Leaking or poorly designed air ducts are unfortunately common, and can cause problems for heaters or air conditioners before they are discovered-unless you contact Dayco Systems for professional duct system efficiency testing!

Duct Problems Are Worse Than You May Believe
What's so wrong with a few leaks along the ducts? Or a few ducts that weren't sized right when they were put in? Plenty. Just a few leaks on their own can contribute to losing 30% of the conditioned air passing through the ventilation system. That's money spent on running the HVAC system that goes to waste. Proper duct repair, duct sealing, and duct replacement can restore the efficiency of the HVAC system, provide better air circulation, and help keep contaminants out of the household air.
Ways to Test Duct System Efficiency
We recommend you have duct testing if your ducts are more than five years old and have never been checked. You should also schedule testing if you notice signs of duct leakage and pressure loss, such as odd smells from the ducts, rising utility bills, higher humidity, uneven heating and cooling, and rattling sounds from the vents.
Our technicians test duct efficiency by sealing off the ventilation system and changing the pressure inside the ductwork. This duct pressure test finds out how airtight the ventilation system is, so it's also a duct leakage test. We'll be able to tell, based on changes in pressure readings, how efficient the ducts are—and what we need to do to improve them.
