Duct Testing Services in Orem
If you own a centralized heater or air conditioner, you likely have a system of ducts in your Orem, UT home that carries the conditioned air to every nook and cranny. Homeowners rarely pay attention to them since they’re often hidden in the crawlspaces or attic, and because they rarely contain any moving parts. But when breaches arise or other issues interfere with the ducts, you need a professional service to correct them, just as you would with the HVAC system itself.
The trouble becomes in detecting the problem to begin with, and in pinpointing the location of the problem without digging holes in your wall. And that’s where we can help. At Skylake Heating & Air, we’re devoted to providing first-rate duct testing services, not only to inform you of a specific problem, but also to let you know where you can make improvements to your household’s energy efficiency levels. Give us a call today and let us take care of the problem for you!
Trust duct testing services in Orem, UT to Skylake Heating & Air.
The Purpose of Duct Testing
Because the ducts are often hidden away behind the walls, you might not be able to tell when a problem has arisen. In many cases, it’s a breach, which pulls conditioned air out of the system or brings unconditioned air in. Either way, that impacts the bottom line as your system has to work harder (and cost you more money) to overcome the gap. A lack of insulation can also lead to problems, as can dust build–up and similar issues. Overall, leaky ducts can cost you up to 40% of your systems efficiency in some cases.
