When to Schedule Professional Duct Testing in Austin, TX
The problem that many homeowners run into when it comes to the condition of their air ducts is that they rarely interact with them. If your ductwork is leaking, after all, you probably cannot see the tear or loose connection leading to the problem. However, there are a lot of other indicators which can alert you to the need for professional duct testing. You just have to know what you are looking for. Here are a few examples of problems you may encounter that indicate problematic ductwork.
Increased Heating and Cooling Costs: If you notice that your heating and cooling costs spike despite no change in your usage habits, your ductwork may be leaking conditioned air out of the system. This will inevitably lead to higher heating and cooling costs, as your system must then work overtime to replace the conditioned air lost through the leaking ductwork. Professional duct testing will help determine if this is the cause with certainty.
Decreased Indoor Air Quality: Not only can leaking ductwork allow air to escape your ductwork, but it can also give pollutants the opportunity they need to infiltrate your HVAC system. This can lead to a bevy of problems, including the dispersal of said pollutants throughout your entire household. Don’t let problematic ductwork drag down the quality of the air that you breathe in your home. Contact us and schedule professional duct testing today.
Decline in Heating and Cooling Performance: Another issue that problems with your air ducts can lead to is a decline in your overall comfort. The pollutants that air leaks let into your system, the overexertion that your system will suffer, and even a pressure imbalance within your ductwork can all wreak havoc on the overall quality of your heating and cooling system’s performance. With thorough duct testing, you can rest assured that your system is operating at peak performance levels.
