Performance Testing Tool
Have you tested your air duct leakage?
The Duct Blaster® is a calibrated air flow measurement system designed to test and document the airtightness of forced air duct systems in both houses and light commercial buildings. As of April 2016, the Michigan Energy Code now requires testing and sealing of new ductwork.
Energy savings can result from reduced air duct leakage, which can be significant. In addition to energy savings there are other benefits of reduced air duct leakage such as more even temperatures in all rooms, improved indoor air quality, and reduction of odors and fumes.
Certified Duct and Envelope Tightness Verifier
Safety King’s technicians are certified Duct and Envelope Tightness (DET) Verifiers. DET Verifiers are trained specifically to ensure that a home or building’s duct system has no significant leaks which could lead to insufficient air flow and wasted energy. This way, you know that our technicians testing your home meet the standards of the Midwest Home Performance Association and have the qualifications to determine if your system is sealed properly.
How it works
The Duct Blaster fan is connected directly to the duct system in a house, typically at a central return, or at the air handler cabinet. With the remaining registers and grilles temporarily taped off, duct airtightness is measured by either pressurizing or depressurizing the duct system and precisely measuring the fan flow and duct pressure. The Duct Blaster will record the airflow and display it for the technician and homeowner to see.
