Duct Sealing & Repair
Duct Sealing & Repairing
Ductwork – What it is and why do we need them in a perfect condition?
Think of your body’s circulatory system; it is mainly comprised of brain, heart, and blood vessels (veins and arteries) who carry blood to and away from the heart. Similarly, ductwork is responsible for circulating the air from the heating and cooling unit to inside the home and back to the unit. Without fully functional ductwork your heating or cooling system will resist working optimally.
The ductwork of the HVAC system is just as important as the equipment. If not installed properly or sized incorrectly the whole heating or cooling system of the house or business will suffer with insufficient air flow and unnecessary strain on the unit. Not only that, leaky ductwork can also cause toxic air to breathe in and harmful allergens like mold to grow in the house.
How do I know if my ductwork needs to be sealed or repaired?
Are you noticing one or more of the following signs around the house?
- Water leaking through the ceiling or in the walls
- Hot or Cold spots
- Poor air flow
- High allergies or asthma issues
- Mold growth at one or more spots
Then you must call an HVAC expert to get your ductwork checked. A skilled technician will let you know if your ducts are torn or leaking. In such cases, you will need to get your ductwork repaired or replaced as soon as possible.
