Ductwork is the system of pathways and vents that deliver warm or cool air from your HVAC units into your home. Insufficient ducts can cause leaks, resulting in systems to run less efficiently – especially if you have window AC’s set up! It’s important then not just about having enough air supply but also good quality material going all around our homes, so we’re comfortable no matter what season it may be outside.
Your HVAC system is the key to your home’s comfort, so it needs constant care. With thousands of dollars invested in ductwork alone, do you really want a company that will neglect their maintenance? We’re here for all those special considerations when designing your homes.
Common ductwork issues include:
- Sealing problems – If your ductwork isn’t sealed, it can leak a significant amount of air into the crawlspaces of your home. This can lead to increased energy bills and a significantly reduced amount of airflow in your home.
- Poor planning – Ductwork should be strategically placed. If it is too long, then your systems will need to work harder than they should. If ductwork is not sized correctly, it could also fail to properly handle the load produced by your HVAC units.
- Inadequate returns – HVAC systems use returns to suck air back into the system for temperature control. If ductwork doesn’t have enough returns, your HVAC units will run more than they should and cost you more money. Additionally, not having enough returns will make temperatures throughout your home inconsistent.
