What is duct blasting?
Duct blasting is the process by which a trained and certified technician pressure tests the ductwork of a building for air leaks. The duct blaster raises the pressure inside the ducts and measures and documents how airtight the ventilation system is. It is highly recommended to do a duct blasting test at rough-in to prevent problems during final construction and more easily address any identification leakage points.
Why Have a Duct Blasting Test Performed?
It takes only a few leakage points in a house’s ductwork to become taxing on its heating and cooling systems. As air leaks the conditioning systems work harder to maintain a consistent atmosphere in the home, thus they use more energy and make your home less efficient.
The duct blasting test is designed to tell the amount of energy loss in a house. By performing a duct blasting test, a technician can identify the leakage points in the ductwork. These duct leakage points can then be sealed and the energy efficiency of the building increases.
