Our Air Leak Testing Methods
Aire Texas Residential Services, Inc uses a combination of methods to determine if air leakage is occurring in your Plano, TX area home, and where precisely the leakage is occurring from. These methods include:
- Infrared Thermal Imaging Cameras – These cameras can literally help our team see heat, or lack thereof, going through your air ducts.
- Static Pressure Testing – Static pressure is the resistance to airflow in an HVAC system’s components and ductwork.
- Smoke Pencils – Also referred to as smoke sticks, these are battery-powered machines strategically placed in areas that may experience air leakage.
Your Air Sealing Solutions
Air leaks, duct breaches, drafty doors and windows, or any gaps or cracks in your drywall can allow for air to flow in and out of your home. The potential consequences of this include:
- Reduced energy efficiency from your home’s HVAC and indoor air quality systems.
- Access for rodents and other critters to find their way into your home.
- Increased indoor pollution and allergen exposure.
- Decreased comfort.
At Aire Texas Residential Services, Inc, we’ve got the tools and experience needed to effectively resolve any air leakage problems a home in Plano, TX or throughout the North Central Texas area might have.
- Caulking – Your home has what’s called a thermal envelope—this prevents heat transfer from the interior of your home to the exterior—and caulking takes care of any holes or gaps interfering with this.
- Attic Air Sealing – By using the right combination of heat-resistant caulking with insulating materials, we can effectively seal your attic to ensure no heat is escaping during the winter and no conditioned air is getting out through gaps during the summer.
- Duct Sealing – Store bought duct tape—which is actually not appropriately named—is ineffective at providing a long-term solution to breached ductwork. Mastic sealing from our professionals will ensure any pinhole leaks, tears, or gaps will be properly closed up.
