Duct Blaster

If your ducts leak and most do, both energy and money are wasted.  Leaky supply ducts can send expensive conditioned air into unconditioned spaces such as your attic, and leaky return ducts can draw unconditioned air into your duct system. 

We use what is called a Duct Blaster to measure the percentage of conditioned air that reaches your living space vs your attic.  A Duct Blaster is an accurate diagnostic tool which consists of a calibrated fan capable of blowing up to 1500 cubic feet per minute (CFM) of air.  An ATS auditor will connect the Duct Blaster to your central return grille and temporarily seal all other return grilles and supply registers.  Our auditor then measures leakage rate using an airflow and pressure gauge and will recommend any improvements if they are needed.
