Don't Forget About Your Ductwork This Winter

Thursday, November 9th, 2017 by Michele Alicky


If you use a forced air heating system, such as a furnace or a heat pump, in order to keep your home warm and cozy throughout the heating season, then it is important that you know for certain that your air ducts are in fine working condition. When you rely upon air ducts to distribute all of the heat that your heating system disperses throughout your home, any problems with those air ducts can lead to serious issues for your comfort and heating efficiency levels. Of course, because most of your ductwork is hidden, there is really no way in which you can hope to visually inspect your air ducts in order to pinpoint the source of any problems. That is why you should call the ductwork experts at Pelletier Mechanical Services, LLC at (860) 283-0316 to evaluate and service your air ducts. 

How Does Duct Testing Work?

Professional duct testing requires the tools and skills that only trained professionals can possess. We offer residential duct pressure testing services, which will help us to evaluate the integrity of your air ducts in a non-intrusive manner. Essentially, we will seal off the vents and registers of your ductwork system. Once we have, we will use a calibrated fan to pressurize your ductwork from within. We measure the airflow input against the pressure of your air ducts in order to determine if your air ducts are leaking. Leaky ductwork is one of the most pervasive issues leading to energy loss in homes throughout the country. The results of this duct testing will give us the information that we need to determine if this is a problem in your home.

Benefits of Professional Duct Sealing

Even if you were able to diagnose air leaks in your air ducts on your own, there is no way that you could effectively seal them. Duct tape sure won’t do the trick. Instead, a mastic must be applied to problem areas, and allowed to harden, sealing the air duct in the process. When we seal your air ducts, you’ll be able to heat and cool your home in a more efficient, effective, and even manner. Not only that, but it can also help to boost indoor air quality, preventing pollutants from entering your ductwork, and then being distributed throughout your entire household via these air ducts.
