Air Duct Testing in Paramus, NJ
If you use a forced air heating or air conditioning system to regulate temperatures in your home, like a central AC or a furnace, then you use ductwork to distribute air heated and/or cooled by these systems throughout the house. That is an important job, and one that you want to be doing as effectively and efficiently as possible. That is why problems with your air ducts are so serious.
Now, recognizing problems with your air ducts is itself a bit problematic. Why? Well, when is the last time you really saw much of your ductwork? Probably never, and this is by design. Homeowners don’t typically want a bunch of exposed ductwork running throughout their homes. This is precisely why you may want to schedule professional duct testing in Paramus, NJ with Advanced Mechanical Services. Contact us today to do just that!

When Is Duct Testing Necessary?
Duct testing is not really something that you need to schedule on an annual basis as you do heating and air conditioning maintenance services. However, you also need to keep in mind that leaky ductwork is both very common and very disruptive to your HVAC systems and their heating and cooling output. So when should you schedule professional duct testing in Paramus, NJ?
There are a few different scenarios in which duct testing is recommended. The first is simply if you have never had your air ducts tested. It may seem unnecessary, but getting out ahead of problems with your ductwork is definitely in your best interest. Other, more specific scenarios should raise red flags too, though. Look out for any of the following problems in your home.
- Decreased indoor air quality. If the ductwork that you use to distribute heated and cooled air throughout your home is not in good shape, it can pull pollutants into the system and distribute them throughout your home.
- Increased energy bills. If your air ducts are leaking, then you are not going to be heating and/or cooling your home as efficiently as possible. This will be reflected in your heating and cooling costs.
- Uneven heating and cooling. If you air ducts are leaking, then you are most likely not going to be able to heat and cool your home evenly throughout. Don’t ignore hot or cold spots in your home.
How Does Duct Testing Work?
We are not going to be tearing apart your home to check for leaks in your air ducts physically, so don’t worry. The duct testing process is actually much more sophisticated than this. It also requires the expertise and equipment that only trained, experienced professionals have to offer.
We will seal up your air ducts to prevent air loss and gain through the registers at terminal points throughout the house. We will hook a fan up to your air duct system, and we’ll use this fan to pressurize the ductwork. We then monitor the fan’s output and the actual pressure in the air ducts.
This will let us determine if there are leaks in the system, and it will also tell us how severe those leaks are. If further action is warranted based on these findings, we’ll then go about pinpointing the source of the leaks in order to determine how best to put a stop to the problem!
