Why is Duct Leakage Testing Important?

Duct leakage has been associated with  increasing air conditioning and heating bills, potentially dangerous indoor air quality problems, and comfort complaints experienced by homeowners and commercial occupants.

The experts at GreenStamp can conduct a duct leakage test to identify if your construction project has any of these potential problems. The test involves pressurizing the duct system with a calibrated fan. Simultaneously, we measure the air flow through the fan and its effect on the pressure within the duct system. The tighter the duct system, the less air is needed from the fan to create a change in duct system pressure.  Duct leakage measurements and results are used to diagnose and identify leakage problems, estimate efficiency losses from duct leakage, and certify the quality of duct system installation.

Let GreenStamp help you ensure your construction project meets MA state codes. We can give you the certification as required, based on the results and recommendations.
