Duct Leakage Testing is a diagnostic testing that is exclusively designed to measures the airtightness of HVAC ductwork. A duct leakage tester consists of a calibrated fan for determining an airflow rate along with a pressure sensing device to evaluate the pressure generated by the fan. With the combination of pressure and fan flow measurements which help in determining further the ductwork airtightness. This test is used in residential single-family and commercial buildings that have enforced air delivery systems for cooling and heating.
In California, there are still many existing homes that have improperly sized ducts and pieces of equipment. Most of the manufacturers of ducted A/C systems have efficiently manufactured. However, the key reason for conducting this test is to determine if there is sufficient airflow in the HVAC system.
Fan Efficacy is the CFM output of the system divided by wattage. This test is called out in codes and standards. The California Energy Commission requires that all blowers should run at or 0.58 fan efficacy. If the blower is running at 1000 CFM then it cannot use more than 580 watts of power.
RCV (Refrigerant Charge Verification) is performed on your A/C system to ensure that the system is operating at its peak efficiency. It also makes sure that you are not paying higher utility bills due to an improperly charged system. With the help of this test, our professionals determine if your AC has enough refrigerant in your system to efficiently cool the house or San Jose building. Since too much or lack of pressure of the refrigerant can cause severe challenges to the AC system. Accordingly, Our San Jose HERS Raters hook up gauges to your condenser and take subcooling and superheat measurements subsequently.
Blower Door Testing determines building-airtightness by combining specialized accessories. This test envisions if your building or house releases hot or cold air more than the permissible level. At NorCal, we offer Blower Door Testing in Santa Rose and other surrounding areas.
Considering three general parts of Title 24 which includes all the criteria of the standards which include Mandatory Requirements, Performance Standards, and Prescriptive Standards. While the building is required to comply with the mandatory requirements, performance standards vary by the building type and location.
