Are you building a house? Or a house that is already built that you want to have a duct leakage test? This is an important test to have done to the home to make sure nothing is leaking out of the air ducts. If there is a leak it could make your electric bill run high.

If there happens to be a problem with the air ducts they are trained to be able to find the problem and give you a solution to fix it. Here is a list of a few reasons why it is so important to have this testing done on your ductwork.

What Problems Can A Leak In Duct Work Cause

Anytime you are referring to work being done on your home, it can be a daunting task. One reason is that a lot of times it is an expense that we sometimes fear the cost of. The thing to remember is that, if left unattended to it costs you a whole lot more down the road. 

Some things that a leak in the ductwork can cause are:

  • Very high utility bills
  • Your house not being evenly heated/cooled
  • A very dusty home (that will drive you crazy)

1. To Know If There Is A Leak

Having a leak in the air duct is something that can cause a lot of problems for you. You do not want to leave something like that and not fix the problem. It can run up the electricity bill for one and make the prices run sky high. 

They will perform a test on the ductwork by forcing air through and measuring the pressure and air that is coming through. If there are any alerts, then you will have to talk about the next step in fixing it. You do not want to not fix this type of problem. 

2. To Avoid a Large Utility Bill

When you have a leak that is happening in your ductwork it can cause a few different problems for you. For one you are going to notice that your utility bill is a lot higher than normal, not to mention that your house isn’t going to be heating/cooling right. The back of your home may feel a completely different temperature than the front. This makes it difficult to set the temperature to a comfortable setting. 

3. To Keep From Having a Dusty Home

Have you noticed an absurd amount of dust around your home lately? Maybe it is time to check on the ductwork. When there is a hole in yours this can be a problem that people have, that will drive them crazy. The air that is blowing through is stirring up the dust on the outside and it gets pulled into the home.
