- Rooms that feel stuffy and uncomfortable
- Rising utility bills in the summer and winter
- Damage to ductwork in the attic, garage, or crawl space
- Flexible ducts that are kinked or tangled
Inspecting Your Ductwork
You can check for leaks by running your system and inspecting the ducts and joints that are visible to you. Any leaky spots can be sealed with either mastic or foil-backed tape. Be sure to pay attention to the areas where the ducts meet the walls. Using the right kind of tape is very important. Although duct tape would seem to imply that it can be used on ducts, it actually isn’t ideal.
Any kind of fabric-backed tape will deteriorate over time. If you have questions about your ductwork or how to care for it, feel free to contact our experts. Small issues with ductwork are something that many homeowners can take care of themselves. However, larger or more complicated problems often require the help of a professional.
Over time, dust, pollen, pet dander, mites, bacteria, and other debris make their way into your ducts and build up. When you turn on your HVAC system these contaminants are then released into your home. Our duct cleaning services include removing dirt, debris, and other pollutants from your ductwork to restore airflow and improve indoor air quality If you are concerned about bacteria, viruses, or other forms of organic growth, a UV light air purifier can be installed in your ductwork as an additional means of cleaning your home’s air.
The U.S. Department of Energy’s Energy Star program reports that leaky ducts in crawlspaces and attics are responsible for at least 20% of heating and cooling energy loss issues in homes. This energy loss translates to decreased home comfort and higher monthly utility bills. Addressing leaky ductwork is essential for maintaining optimal comfort and energy-efficiency. Doing so also reduces the strain on your heating and cooling equipment, helping your HVAC systems to last longer.
