DUCT CLEANING, REPLACEMENT & REPAIR
Investing in a new, efficient air conditioning and heating system is a great step toward becoming an energy-conscious home owner, but sometimes your home needs more.
That new AC unit may not be the answer to all your energy concerns – especially if the air ducts in your attic are a mess.
According to Energy Star, about 20% of all conditioned air in a typical home is lost through leaks and holes in the air duct system.
Poorly designed ducts in your attic cause a lot of problems. Keeping you & your family comfortable no matter which room they’re in is important to us.

Sign of a Poor or Damaged Duct System
Tangles, Kinked, or Damaged Ducts
Overtime ducts can get damaged or worn down. Large holes, sections hanging down, or ripped areas are some of the possibilities.
Airflow and Static Pressure
If you have an airflow problem in your house, we may need to modify the supply or return side of the system. Often, we discover that a new (or poorly installed) Heating & Cooling system doesn’t fit perfectly with the existing Ductwork system. Solutions include duct cleaning, adding vents, and other possible adjustments.
Shaking, rattling, whistling and other strange noises from your ducts are a sign of damaged or dirty ductwork. It could mean it’s loose and not well secured.
Hot and Cold Spots
Hot and cold spots, uneven temperatures, and airflow problems can indicate improper duct sizing. You may know how frustrating it can be for your living room to be uncomfortably warm while your bedroom is downright chilly.
Wait… What exactly is a Duct System?
Air ducts work with your heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) system and are a collection of tubes that are used as pathways for heated or cooled air to travel (deliver and remove air) throughout a home. Air ducts are like the circulatory system of your home, which is why a proper working duct system is so important!
