Duct Testing and Sealing in Anaheim, CA

Here’s a secret you need to know about your home’s ventilation system: it may have holes, gaps, and other spots where air is escaping. You probably haven’t noticed this before because ducts are built in attics and behind walls, kept out of sight. But duct leakage is a serious situation, costing you in energy bills, comfort, and even air quality.

Solving duct leakage takes experienced professionals. Smart Choice Heating and Air is proud to have a qualified team of duct specialists who’ll arrive at your house with the tools for duct testing and duct sealing. We’re on the cutting edge of technology and we’re always here for you with service in Anaheim, CA and throughout Los Angeles, Riverside, and San Bernardino counties.

Air Holes in Ductwork Create Major Problems

"So, what’s a bit of air getting through tiny holes?" you want to know. Plenty!

The ductwork in any building needs to remain airtight so it won’t lose air pressure. Even small gaps cause pressure to drop. In fact, your home might lose 30% of the air circulating through the ventilation system because of duct leakage. You’ve already paid to heat or cool that air, and it’s going to waste in the attic or between the walls. Those high utility bills may be the fault of leaky ducts.

Larger air leaks add new problems, such as hot and cold spots around your house. They can even let in stale and pollutant-filled air from closed-off sections of the house and channel it right into the living spaces.

When Should You Have the Ducts Tested?

Ducts are kept out of sight, so how will you know when to schedule duct testing to find air leaks?

One answer is, "every 3 to 5 years." We recommend duct testing on regular basis, even if nothing appears outwardly wrong. If you have just moved into a new house, that’s also an ideal time to have it checked. The previous owners may have never touched the ducts and left them in rotten condition.

The other answer is, "when signs point toward duct leaks." We’ve mentioned a few already: high utility bills, a drop in air quality, hot and cold spots. You may also hear a rattling sound when the HVAC system comes on, and this often means loose or damaged ducts.

Our Anaheim, CA, HVAC Pros Will Seal Your Ducts

We have trained and equipped technicians to test your ductwork and find if you have leaks and how widespread the leaks are. Once we’ve established this, we’ll use advanced duct sealing methods. Closing up ducts isn’t something for basic duct tapes—we’ll use mastic sealant, mechanical tapes, and other tools to ensure the ductwork is airtight once more.
