Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) - Your Guide to Vent Cap Systems!

What is Duct Leakage Testing?

Duct leakage testing measures the air that escapes from a building's HVAC system through its ducts. Energy loss, reduced indoor air quality, and higher utility bills can result from duct leakage. By pressurizing the duct system and measuring air escape, we identify and repair leaks, enhancing energy efficiency and indoor air quality. Duct leakage testing is crucial for building codes, energy efficiency programs, and voluntary use by homeowners and managers.

What is Envelope Tightness Testing?

Envelope Tightness Testing evaluates HVAC system performance by measuring air leakage from ductwork. We identify leaks or gaps that cause energy loss, poor indoor air quality, and discomfort for occupants. The test pressurizes the duct system with air, measuring the escaping air percentage. Lower percentages indicate tighter ducts and reduced energy loss. This test is essential for energy efficiency and sustainability goals in new constructions and retrofits.
