Duct Tightness Testing | Northern NJ
WHAT IS DUCT TIGHTNESS TESTING?
Duct tightness testing, often referenced as duct blaster testing, is the pressurization or depressurization of a HVAC duct system to determine the tightness of the system. Often, two elements are measured: total duct leakage and duct leakage of a duct system with components in an unconditioned space in reference to the outside (exterior).
As a general rule, a properly sized tight duct system is a more efficient duct system. In recent years energy codes have become more stringent with their requirements requiring testing for energy code compliance.
