In order for the HVAC systems in your Georgetown, Cedar Park, or Round Rock, TX home to work as effectively as they should without energy waste, the ductwork associated with them must have an airtight seal along its length. If holes or gaps develop along your air ducts, you’ll notice a rise in costs for running your heater and air conditioner, a drop in comfort throughout the year, and poor indoor air quality.
But the only way to know if your air duct system needs sealing or repairs is by having them professionally tested. Testing ducts is as simple as contacting the team at Miller Climate Control—we test ductwork and perform duct sealing, repair, and replacement when needed as well. Contact us today to schedule duct testing or sealing in Georgetown, Cedar Park, & Round Rock, TX.
We don’t expect our customers to know how to test ducts—this is something that involves high–end equipment and professional training to perform, a rather complex process. There are, however, a number of signs that you can watch for which indicate your ducts are creating trouble for the HVAC system due to damage, leaks, or insufficient construction. These signs include:
So, you’re at the point that you believe your ductwork is compromised and you want to schedule our professionals to come in and test them. But what exactly does this process involve? First, our team seals–off the ventilation system by closing off all the room vents and registers in your Georgetown, Cedar Park, or Round Rock, TX home. Next, our highly trained technicians attach a special fan onto the ventilation system to create high air pressure within the ducts.
After this, a device measures the pressure levels inside your air ducts to see how much it drops, and how fast, which tells us if the ductwork has lost integrity and is rapidly losing air. Breached ductwork requires professional sealing or repairs to restore the vital air tightness to the HVAC system.
When it comes to sealing your ductwork, you may be wondering why you can’t just run to the hardware store and buy some duct tape. Unfortunately, this tape is not aptly named and, except for providing an extremely temporary solution, should not be used to patch up any area of your ductwork.
The job of closing up gaps and holes in your ductwork is something that requires a professional–grade sealant applied by trained and experienced professionals, such as the experts on our team. We use special techniques to detect where your air leaks are coming from, and then close them up with the proper tools and sealant.
