Trust Our Team for Accurate Duct Testing

Are your air ducts leaking air into unoccupied spaces of your home? Is the poor air quality in your home being caused by damaged or dirty ductwork? The only way to tell for sure is through professional duct testing. This is a relatively complex process involving high-end equipment and training on how to use that equipment—and analyze the data.

How do you know if you should schedule duct testing? If you never have before, now is a good time to start. Otherwise, there are some signs you can watch out for.

  • High heating and cooling bills. If your energy bills are considerably higher than what you paid at the same time the year before, it’s a sign that your HVAC system isn’t working as efficiently as it once did, and duct leakage may be to blame.
  • Musty odors coming from the vents. Duct leakage can not only release dust and debris into your home, but it can draw in moisture and particles from your attic and between the walls, eventually causing a detectable musty odor to come through your vents.
  • Drop in airflow: Check out the airflow coming from your room vents. If it seems sluggish, it could be the fault of a drop in ductwork integrity.

Do You Need Duct Sealing, Repair, or Replacement?

The answer to this will depend on what our Johns Creek duct service pros find during your air duct testing appointment. In many cases, the damage to your ductwork is minor enough that professional duct sealing will do the trick. Duct sealing involves the use of a special, commercial grade mastic sealant that we apply to the affected ducts.

It’s important to note here, that store-bought duct tape is actually not an adequate solution for duct sealing or repair, despite its name. It turns brittle with temperature fluctuations, and will quickly fail.

Duct repair is necessary when you have more serious duct breaches, such as gaping holes or loose connections. Duct replacement may be recommended if its discovered that your ductwork was improperly installed to begin with, and therefore incompatible with the HVAC systems you have in place. You needn’t worry when you have our team on your side, though. We’ve been the trusted ductwork experts for customers throughout the North 400 Corridor for over two decades!
