Duct Sealing, Repair, And Replacement
Do you have rooms in your house that always feel too cold or too hot? Leaky air ducts could be to blame. Ductwork is the system of vents and air ducts that move air from your heating and cooling system to various rooms in your house.
Over time, the strain of transporting air throughout your home can take a toll on your ductwork, leading to issues like reduced comfort, uneven heating and cooling, and high energy bills. That’s why it’s so important to perform routine duct cleaning and duct repairing. When your ductwork is cleaned and properly maintained, it’s able to keep your home comfortable with maximum energy-efficiency and effectiveness.
However, even the best-maintained ductwork can run into issues over time. Ductwork that is old, damaged, or wasn’t installed correctly would benefit from services like air duct repair, replacement, and sealing.
Duct Repair & Replacement
If your ductwork isn’t performing as well as it used to, then it may need repair or replacement to restore its performance. When might you need ductwork repair?
Aging ductwork: As a rule of thumb, ductwork should last between 10 and 15 years before it starts really showing signs of its age. As the system gets older, it becomes susceptible to air leaks, which reduces your HVAC system’s energy-efficiency and its ability to keep your house consistently comfortable. Air duct sealing can usually solve this issue, but if your ducts are very old, we may recommend a full duct replacement instead.
Improperly installed air ducts: If your ductwork was not properly installed in the first place, you’ll most likely start noticing problems before it reaches the 10-year mark. It’s possible that the elbows weren’t sealed properly or that the ductwork itself wasn’t fastened to the joists for support. These issues can lead to air leaks, reduced performance, premature component failure, and an unnecessary strain on your heating and cooling system.
Damaged ductwork: In some cases, ductwork can become damaged beyond what’s considered normal wear-and-tear. Rust, rodents, and debris-build up can all take a toll on your air ducts. Home remodeling projects can also accidentally damage ducts, especially if they’ve been jostled, moved, or cracked. If you suspect your ductwork is damaged, our technicians can inspect your system, identify the source, and provide the best possible solution.
