Duct Leakage Testing Portland, OR - Heat Relief Heating & Cooling

Duct Leakage Testing

Duct LeakageIndustry experts estimate more than two-thirds of all installed ductwork is leaky enough to justify sealing or repair. Leaky ducts can significantly increase your heating and cooling bills, reduce equipment capacity and performance, and decrease home comfort. Studies show that duct leakage actually accounts for as much as 25% of total house energy loss. Duct leakage can also be the cause of too-hot or too-cold rooms, poor indoor air quality, as well as humidity problems.

By performing a duct leakage test you can determine where the leaks are in order to repair, estimate efficiency losses from duct leakage, and certify the quality of duct system installation. A duct leakage performance test involves pressurizing the duct system and measuring the affect on
the system.

What we can do for you:

  • The Blower Door is a whole house testing system, which indirectly measures duct leakage by pressurizing the entire house to a standard pressure.
  • Compare the whole house test before and after all of the registers are temporarily sealed, the Blower Door provides you with an exact measurement of duct leakage to the outside.
  • With the Blower Door running, duct leaks can be pinpointed.
  • The Blower Door can indentify home “shell” or “envelope” improvements that will reduce energy use and increase your comfort.
