Homes and buildings in Pueblo & Colorado Springs that rely on a central air conditioning system or forced air heating system use a network of ducts in order to distribute cool or warm air throughout your home.

Duct Leakage Testing
A duct leakage tester is designed to measure the airtightness of forced air heating, ventilating and air-conditioning (HVAC) ductwork. A duct leakage tester consists of a calibrated fan for measuring an airflow rate and a pressure sensing device to measure the pressure created by the fan flow. Then it calculates the amount of pressure passing through an orifice plate. Based on the results it determines how much leakage there is.
These are the various methods for conducting a duct leakage test:
Two Kinds of Leaks
There are two kinds of leaks, benign and malignant. The malignant leaks should be taken care of immediately. They’re the ones that send conditioned air into unconditioned spaces. Benign leaks are the ones leaking inside the conditioned space. Leakage inside the building enclosure isn’t as bad because it’s still within the conditioned space.
These two kinds of duct leakages require two different types of tests. The malignant leaks occur in ducts that are outside the conditioned space and you would need an “outside leakage test.” The other test is called the “total leakage test.”
The Benefits of Duct Sealing
Duct sealing in Colorado Springs has a few benefits. When you put these together, they can change your life for the better.
The Aeroseal Process
The Aeroseal process is straightforward. We’ll come out and test your ducts for leaks, then explain what we’ve found and how Aeroseal could help. Installing the Aeroseal is easy. We’ll close off your duct system, then attach it to the Aeroseal machine. This pumps in a polymer that will bind first to the edges of your holes and cracks and then to itself. Eventually, it seals them up and makes the system airtight. When the process is done, we’ll test the system again and show you how much less air you’re losing from your ducts. Then we’ll leave you to enjoy your comfortable home!
Duct Repair in Colorado Springs
Duct repair become necessary when your heating and air conditioning system feels as if it’s slowing down, becoming less effective and resulting in the inability to cool or heat a space that it once did easily. These signs mean that there is a duct problem that needs to be addressed immediately.
It’s definitely good to call in a professional for your Colorado Springs duct repair. Common methods for sealing ducts involve commercial HVAC tape and mastic. But if the ducts are really old, leaky and lack adequate insulation, then the best option may be to upgrade to new, insulated flex ducts.
