What is hvac duct inspection ?
Heating, Ventilation and Air-Conditioning (HVAC) systems are critical in maintaining the quality or air and comfort in an indoor setting, thus it needs to be maintained. There are several issues that could contribute in the failure or inconvenience of a system such as AC condensate leaks and air leaks. With Elite Thermography Inspection, you can gain a whole new understanding of the heating and cooling issues. You’ll be able to see problems with the ducts and electrical faults and then you can make decisions from the information.

In the not so distant past, thermal imaging tools were extremely expensive and out of reach for most of us as a diagnostic tool. As technology advances and improves, these tools have become much more affordable, and are now an accessible option for the masses.
The Importance of an HVAC Inspection:
Heating and cooling systems:
Over time, furnaces, boilers, central air conditioners and heat pumps wear out. If they’re not properly maintained, they wear out much faster. An HVAC inspection should ensure all systems are operating safely and at optimal performance. An efficient system will save money on energy consumption, as well.
Ducts play an essential role in any forced-air heating and cooling system, as they carry the heated or cooled air throughout a home. In many homes, ducts have multiple air leaks, lack proper insulation and are inefficiently designed. Poor and leaking ductwork can lead to significant energy loss in a home.
Mold and other contaminants:
Mold, mildew and bacteria can often be the result of a poorly maintained air conditioning system. Mold can be very difficult to remove if it gets bad enough. If mold gets into ductwork or around the indoor A/C coil, it can contaminate the household air and lead to health problems for home residents.
Carbon monoxide (CO):
An HVAC inspection should make sure that all combustion appliances, including the furnace, water heater and gas stove, are safely vented to the outdoors. A good inspection will also ensure that there is enough space to dissipate carbon monoxide, if any leaks occur.
Without effective ventilation, dirty, stale, humid air will accumulate inside. Your HVAC inspector should check for adequate ventilation throughout the house, including the attic. Proper ventilation is needed for a healthy indoor environment.
