Airflow a Problem? Let Us Test Your Ductwork

Posted by Paul Wadsworth on Fri, Jan 14, 2011 @ 12:23 PM

We put the air conditioning and heating systems in our homes through a lot of work each year and it is not only the actual units that can suffer. Sometimes the ductwork used to carry fresh air to the entire house can suffer damage during the year. Keeping your ductwork clean and in good condition is paramount, not only to save energy, but also to keep the indoor air quality acceptable.

Airflow is a big deal when it comes to ductwork and we want to make sure that each home has ductwork that is working to its maximum potential. If you notice that the flow of air around your home, be it hot or cold, does not seem even, then it is more than likely time to call in a professional to take a look at your ductwork.

Why is having your ductwork professionally inspected important? We use specialized equipment that helps us determine whether the airflow at a certain point in your house is too high, too low or just right. From there, we can discuss adding additional returns or changes to the ductwork itself.

When our professionals come to your home to test your ductwork, we bring all the necessary equipment with us. The procedure is not dangerous and you can stay in your home the entire time we are inspecting the ductwork. We will have to turn off your heating or air conditioning during the time it takes us to run the diagnostic tests.

Once we have performed the needed tests on your home’s ductwork, we will let you know what areas of your home are problematic the changes we recommend. Sometimes none of these steps are needed and cleaning will suffice. Whatever the outcome, the professionals at P.K. Wadsworth are happy to help.
