HERS Services


Duct Testing

So-Cal HERS Rating offers duct testing, which is now mandatory for all new construction as well as when HVAC equipment is changed and the ducts are altered; this applies to both commercial and residential applications.

Duct testing must also be performed by an independent or state certified HERS rater. Furthermore, there must be a specific limit in which the pressuring of the duct system is at a specified level to verify that the ducts leak at a rate that is no greater than 6% of the overall airflow. A much greater amount of duct leakage is allowed for retrofit HVAC work.
