DUCT LEAKAGE TESTING
A duct leakage test In Delaware measures the airtightness of your ducts. This test is incredibly useful for improving your home’s energy consumption and saving you a lot of money on your energy bills. It might be the best thing you ever do for your home.
The purpose of the test is to ensure that the amount of air escaping from the unit or the ductwork outside the building envelope is minimal and working efficiently.
Special fans calibrated to measure the airflow in your ducts can tell you a lot about what’s behind your walls. Not only will air leakage in your ducts lead you to spend more on your energy bills, but it can also spread dust and harmful fumes throughout your home.
We help serve both residential customers and builders looking for a duct leadage test in order to close out building permints in the state of Delaware.
The states of Pennsylvania and New Jersey have now adopted the 2015 and 2018 International Energy Conservation Code which requires all newly constructed and renovated homes to have a mandatory blower door test. A duct leakage test is also a requirement if any part of the ductwork or the system itself sits outside of the buildings’ thermal envelope. We conduct these types of tests as well as air barrier and insulation audits. We provide builders with the necessary paperwork to submit to the building inspectors in order to close out there building permits.
