You don’t want your attic cooled by your air conditioner; yet this is exactly what can happen when your ductwork is leaky, damaged, or poorly designed. In addition to wasting precious energy, ductwork problems can cause inconsistent indoor temperatures, high heating and cooling bills, poor indoor air quality, excessive amounts of dust, and more. If you’re experiencing any of these problems in your home, it’s important to consult a ductwork specialist as soon as possible.
Find the Right Solution: Testing & Repairs for Leaky Ductwork
Duct testing is your first line of defense against leaky ductwork. To assess the condition of your ductwork, we can perform a visual inspection along with a Duct Blaster Test and Air Balancing Test. If we find any leaks, punctures, or loose connections, we can perform repairs to optimize the efficiency of your ductwork. This may include sealing damaged ducts; sealing the furnace, plenum, registers, and air returns; and rejoining loose connections. When damaged ducts cannot be fixed by sealing, duct replacement is an excellent long-term solution.
Optimizing Ductwork Air Flow
Even if you have the highest efficiency heating and cooling equipment in your home, low air flow in your ductwork can keep your home uncomfortable. With air flow balancing, we can locate inefficiencies in your duct system and make improvements as needed to optimize it. In cases where your ductwork may also be undersized or improperly configured, redesigning your ducts and adding additional ducts or returns if needed can help you get the most from your HVAC systems.
