Ductwork Solutions

The duct system in your home distributes the air you pay to heat or cool throughout the house. When working correctly, the duct system should distribute air evenly and your home should reach the desired temperature as quickly as possible. Supply ducts bring the conditioned (heated or cooled) air to rooms, while return ducts bring air back to the furnace or air conditioner. If you have problems with an inefficient HVAC system, uncomfortable rooms, or high heating and cooling costs there could be an issue with your ductwork. Unfortunately, many homeowners have leaky, inefficient ducts, which force your HVAC system to work longer and harder to get your home to the right temperature. According to the US Department of Energy, the average HVAC duct system is only about 60-75 percent efficient because of insufficient air flow. That means air is not flowing through your space and your HVAC system as it should be, which leads to all kinds of undesirable consequences. Some of the consequences of having a bad duct system are:

  • Hot and cold spots, drafts and stuffy air in your space due to impeded air flow.
  • Extra wear and tear on your air conditioner, since it needs to run longer and work harder to compensate for flaws in the ductwork design, leading to more breakdowns and shorter equipment life.
  • Poor air quality that exposes the occupants of your space to increased levels of dust, pollutants, fumes, and even mold growth from too much humidity.
  • Unbalanced air pressure that causes odors to linger, doors to slam by themselves and distracting levels of noise in your space.

Ductwork Inspections and Repairs

There are many factors to take into consideration when talking about your duct system, and a defect in your duct system can waste hundreds to thousands of dollars a year by forcing your HVAC system to run longer than necessary. Duct systems lose energy in two ways: by conduction of heat from the warm surface, and air leakage through small cracks and seams. When your duct system has a problem then it can not only cost you money but can make your home very uncomfortable to live in as well.
