When you are concerned about the overall health and energy efficiency of your home, you have to check on many things. Proper insulation is a priority, as is making sure that you have a high quality home heating and AC system. You also need to ensure proper ventilation and probably have an indoor air cleaner installed as well.
However, one element that is easy to forget about is the importance of your air duct system. When you think about it, it makes sense that the health of your ducts could play such a significant role in the overall wellbeing of your home. After all, they are an integral part of your home heating and cooling system, any ventilation system you have in place and they are where your indoor air cleaner would be installed.
So it only makes sense that it’s good for your system as a whole to ensure your ducts are in good working order. Whether you get this done on a regular basis or have never had it done, the technicians at Solar Bear are your South Florida area duct testing experts. We have been performing this type of service for years and have all of the necessary experience and equipment to do a thorough and professional job.
Potential Ductwork Problems
If you neglect testing your ducts, you will not know what problems could be lurking just below the surface ready to erupt and complicate your life. Proper duct testing designed to uncover these hidden problems and make it possible to correct them with targeted efforts. Even if your ductwork was of the highest quality when it was put in, small defects can develop over time and these will gradually begin to influence the ability of the entire system to perform.
Your ducts are a closed system and rely on certain levels of pressure in order to efficiently move air from one area to another. Even the smallest of leaks or cracks can upset this pressure balance and compromise the efficiency of the entire system.
Leaks like this can also let in outside contaminants that will add pollution to your indoor air. While your air cleaner can certainly remove the majority of contaminants that enter your indoor air supply, it cannot do much if those contaminants come in at a point past where the air cleaner is located. That means that leaks in this part of your air ducts will compromise both the effectiveness of your home HVAC system and the quality of the air inside your home.
Advanced Duct Testing Equipment
Many of the cracks and leaks we find when we complete a duct-testing project are quite small and possibly even undetectable with the naked eye. We make sure all of our technicians have access to the latest equipment and technology so that we can be sure we find anything that could be a potential problem in your ductwork.
