New Retrotec-certified service will help homeowners identify and locate household duct leakage that can inflate energy bills by 30% or more, Enviro Air reports
Garner, NC -- (SBWIRE) -- 09/21/2015 -- Enviro Air, one of the Raleigh area's top HVAC companies, now offers Retrotec-certified residential duct leakage testing. With the average home's ducts leaking more than 20% of the air they transfer and many being far worse, testing for and locating sources of leakage is an important way of improving energy efficiency and lowering utility bills. Enviro Air technicians will now be able to deploy state-of-the-art Retrotec 341 DucTester equipment to identify and pinpoint duct leakage problems, allowing for money-saving repairs to be made.
"Many homeowners today are aware of the importance of things like ENERGY STAR-certified HVAC equipment," Enviro Air owner Ryan Profitt said, "Far fewer realize just what an expensive and troubling issue duct leakage can be. With our new testing service, we'll be helping families throughout the Raleigh area root out and solve this common problem, saving them money in the process."
According to the Environmental Protection Agency, the ductwork in the average American home leaks anywhere from 20% to 30% of the air that is meant to flow through it. Even the most straightforward of such problems can result in similar wastage of energy and unnecessary excesses on utility bills, but the problem is often even worse than these statistics imply. Depending upon where the leakage happens, whether on the supply or return side of the system, it can result in positive pressure buildup within homes that multiplies the bottom-line inefficiency, running up bills even more.
Fortunately, there are good ways of identifying duct leakage issues. The most effective of all is to make use of equipment that sends precisely calibrated surges of air into sealed-off ductwork while specialized measuring tools check pressure levels within. Designed to make it as easy and effective as possible to do so for residences, the Retrotec 341 DucTester is widely recognized as one of the most capable systems of this kind.
In becoming one of the first companies in the region to offer Retrotec-certified residential duct leakage testing with the 341 DucTester, Enviro Air will provide home and multifamily dwelling owners throughout the area with an important new option. The company's trained, diligent HVAC specialists will now be able to quickly assess and locate duct leakage issues, information that will allow potentially rewarding repairs to be made.
