Should I Have My Air Ducts Tested?

There are certain services, such as air conditioning maintenance, that you obviously need to have completed on a yearly basis. Other services, though, are on more of a need-based schedule. Of course, you can only schedule services as needed if you are able to recognize when they may be needed. That is why we’d like to share with you some of the signs that you may want to schedule professional duct testing in Mesa, AZ.

When problems occur with the ductwork that you use to distribute cooled — and, though seldom necessary, heated — air throughout your home, you’ll encounter a number of different problems. It is always best to have those problems resolved promptly, which is why you need to know what to look for.

When in Doubt, Call in a Pro!

There is only so much self-diagnosis that you can really do when it comes to your air ducts. Even if you are convinced that there is a problem, after all, where do you go from there. Armed with tools like finely calibrated fans, our technicians will not only figure out if your air ducts are leaking, but precisely where the problem lies.

One sign that you should schedule duct testing is an increase in your heating and cooling costs. If you are paying more than you are used to just to keep your home comfortable, it is very possible that this is due to leaky ductwork. Don’t sacrifice your budget just to live in the comfort that you deserve.

Also, pay attention to the level of comfort in different areas of your home. Your house really should be comfortable throughout, not just in certain areas. If you have hot — or, in our brief heating periods, cool — spots in your home, it could be due to leaks in your ductwork. Because it could also be an issue of insulation and leaks in your thermal envelope, though, duct testing is really the only way in which to know for sure.
