Duct Testing in Shreveport, LA
Is the ductwork that distributes conditioned air from your AC and forced-air heater in the shape it needs to be to do its job? A damaged or poorly installed set of ducts in a home can lead to numerous problems with comfort and energy efficiency. Duct sealing and repairs can usually fix these issues, but you first have to know how bad the problem really is. The best way to do that is to schedule professional duct testing with HVAC technicians who have the right equipment and training.

When to Schedule Duct Testing
You don’t need to see any warning signs to decide to arrange for duct testing. It is a service you should have done every couple of years as a routine check–up. If you have never arranged to have testing done on your current home’s ductwork, it’s definitely something to schedule in the near future. It is far better to catch problems in the early stages rather than wait.
But when any warning signs do appear that indicate your ducts are damaged or inefficient, you shouldn’t hesitate to call for professionals to test the ducts. One sign to heed is an increase in your air conditioning/cooling bills for which you cannot account. Low airflow and strange odors from the vents are also omens that something is wrong within the ventilation system. Causes other than leaking air ducts could lay behind these symptoms, but all of them point toward issues that will require an experienced technician to solve.
How Professionals Test Ducts
To perform duct testing, professionals close off a home’s entire ventilation system by blocking up all the room registers. They then attach a powerful vacuum onto the spot where the ductwork exits the cabinet of the heater and air conditioner. The vacuum raises the air pressure inside the ventilation system, and a gauge measures the pressure level to see if it starts to drop. Based on how steep and fast the pressure drops, the technicians will know if the integrity of the system is compromised and by how much. They will use the information to locate the damaged sections and determine the best way to fix them.
