Understanding & Assessing Duct Performance

In large buildings, where HVAC systems are more complex, ducts act as essential pathways to deliver conditioned air throughout the many floors and rooms. Our certified technicians employ advanced techniques to meticulously examine your ductwork, aiming to identify and address potential issues that could affect efficiency and indoor air quality.

During our air duct testing, we focus on measuring various factors, including air leaks, pressure imbalances, and overall system efficiency. This allows us to pinpoint any areas of concern within the duct system, ensuring that conditioned air is distributed effectively throughout your space. Our proactive approach helps building owners reduce operational costs while creating a healthier and more comfortable indoor environment for all occupants.

Duct Leakage Testing

When it comes to duct leakage testing, we specialize in two types of tests – LTO (Leakage to Outside) and TDL (Total Duct Leakage). LTO testing allows us to measure the amount of leakage directed into unconditioned spaces, such as roofs or uninsulated attics, preventing the unnecessary loss of conditioned air. On the other hand, TDL testing provides a thorough evaluation by measuring the total amount of leakage into both conditioned and unconditioned spaces within the entire duct system.

Our certified technicians utilize state-of-the-art duct leakage testers, equipped with calibrated fans and pressure sensing devices. This diagnostic tool enables us to precisely measure airflow rates and pressure levels, offering a detailed assessment of the airtightness of your ductwork. The testing process involves sealing off return air grills or supply registers and leaving one register unsealed for connection to the calibrated fan. By pressurizing the ductwork system in this state, we can monitor pressure changes and detect potential leaks.

Duct Testing Questions

What role does duct testing play in improving indoor air quality?

Duct testing is instrumental in maintaining indoor air quality by preventing contaminants from entering the air circulation. Identifying and rectifying issues in the ductwork ensures that occupants enjoy clean and healthy air without disruption.

How does duct testing contribute to energy efficiency?

Efficient ductwork reduces energy waste by ensuring that conditioned air reaches its intended destination without leaks or obstructions. By optimizing the performance of HVAC systems through duct testing, we help clients save on operational costs by decreasing the amount of wasted energy pushing through duct openings.

How long does the duct testing process typically take, and will it disrupt my daily operations?

The duration of duct testing depends on the size and complexity of the building and air handling systems. Our team members strive to minimize disruptions by scheduling a time that works best with your operation. While there may be temporary adjustments, our goal is to ensure a smooth process with minimal impact on your daily operations.

What documentation or insights will I receive after duct testing is completed?

After duct testing, you’ll receive comprehensive documentation detailing the results and any recommended actions. This information includes measurements of airflow rates, pressure levels, and insights into the airtightness of your ductwork. Our goal is to provide you with valuable data for ongoing maintenance and system optimization.

How often should I consider duct testing for my building?

The frequency of duct testing depends on various factors, including the age of your HVAC system, requirements, and any recent modifications. As a general guideline, it’s advisable to conduct duct testing after construction and during significant renovations to ensure ongoing efficiency and indoor air quality. AET can provide tailored recommendations based on your specific circumstances.
