One of the most important services we offer our customers is duct testing in Mansfield, LA, and throughout the Shreveport area. During duct testing in a home, we seal off the ventilation system, pressurize the ductwork, and then use manometers to test how well the ducts maintain that air pressure. If the pressure begins to quickly drop, we’ll know the integrity of the ducts has fallen and the ductwork needs sealing to return to make it airtight again. (If it ever was. Poor duct installation is unfortunately common.)

But since you aren’t sitting around with a manometer to test the pressure of your ducts and you can’t visually see most of the ventilation system, how will you know it’s time to give us a shout for duct testing? We’ll give you some answers to this question and pointers for detecting when you’ve got ducts that need an inspection.

High humidity is a major problem for comfort in Louisiana. When relative humidity rises above 60%, as it often does during the summer days, the heat starts to seem much worse. This is not because the temperature rises, but because high humidity traps heat in our bodies and makes it harder for us to keep cool. We need our air conditioning systems more than ever on days with both high temperatures and high humidity.

Does your home’s air conditioning system work to dehumidify the air? Yes, it does. But is your air conditioner a dehumidifier? No, it’s not. We’ll explain more below and offer you a way to get real dehumidification power in your house when you need it.
