When Is Duct Repair or Replacement Necessary?
Though they may not look like it, ducts are actually extremely fragile. The smallest mistakes made during installation can lead to gaps opening up between duct sections, large enough to cause massive output losses in heating or air conditioning systems. Even years of normal use can result in the same problems, as the ducts expand and contract with the warm and cool air flowing through them. This may not seem like a big deal to you, but it does have serious consequences. The U.S. Department of Energy has estimated that the average forced–air system loses up to 30% of its total output to duct leaks. That’s a massive amount of energy, nearly a third of your total output, going to waste with damaged ducts.
Why You Need Professional Duct Repair and Replacement Services
Repairing and replacing ducts is not as simple as bolting new sections into the problematic areas. The ducts must be engineered to be the right size, and of the right type. Too large, and there won’t be enough air pressure to properly condition the home. Too small, and the system will bottleneck and cause even further efficiency issues. It takes a lot of engineering knowhow to properly repair and replace ductwork, which is why you will need a professional to handle it for you. Attempting to repair or replace your ducts by yourself is a surefire way to exacerbate your problems without really solving anything. Let us handle all of your duct repair and replacement services instead.
