Is your blower working properly? Are your ducts leaking?
LiveGreen can provide you with duct leakage testing. If we detect leaking, we seal and repair. We can explain to you how the issue is causing you to waste energy. Your air conditioning and heating bills may be on the rise because of leaky ductwork. The leaking is also the culprit of reducing equipment capacity and performance. Not to mention, you could have your home’s air quality suffer and it might even be dangerous. As a homeowner, you want to take care of the blower door and ductwork.
Leaks in forced air duct systems happen in older homes and also in newer constructions. Keeping the home’s energy loss at a minimum is our goal. The other priority is keeping pollutants and irritants from pulling directly into your house. Our tests show if the conditioned air is routing to the garage or crawlspace. The air in your crawlspace can draw in spores, insulation pieces, dust, and more into your ductwork.
Blower Door Test
The blower door gives us an estimate of duct leakage to the outside of your home. The blower door test runs and we pinpoint the duct leakage. This test quantifies the amount of air leakage through its enclosure. Blower door testing makes it easy for us to see where these leaks are and address them properly. When we test, we determine if you are consuming too much energy because of air leakage. You definitely do not want moisture condensation problems to occur because your home is not airtight. Give us a call if you experience drafts of cold air coming through these leaks in the winter or hot air in the summer. Energy code testing is very important and should be completed by an energy auditor as soon as you notice signs that your home is not sealed so airtight.
We can perform the blower door test on various properties, from residential and multifamily to commercial, new construction, or restoration projects. Ready to get started? Give us a call today at (919) 453-6411 or contact us online for an estimate.
