Air Duct Replacement and Sealing
Air ducts are typically the last thing a homeowner thinks about when it comes to caring for their HVAC system. Air ducts are an essential part of your home’s ventilation; without them, your HVAC unit wouldn’t be capable of carrying air from room to room throughout your home. Clean ducts will help to circulate fresh conditioned air throughout the home and help to provide a safe and healthy environment for your family.
In houses with forced-air heating and cooling systems, ducts are used to distribute conditioned air throughout the house. In a typical house, however, about 20 to 30 percent of the air that moves through the duct system is lost due to leaks, holes, and poorly connected ducts. The result is higher utility bills and difficulty keeping the house comfortable, no matter how the thermostat is set.
How do you know that your home has poorly performing ducts?
- you have high summer and winter utility bills;
- you have rooms that are difficult to heat and cool;
- you have stuffy rooms that never seem to feel comfortable;
- your ducts are located in an attic, crawlspace, or the garage;
- you find tangled or kinked flexible ducts in your system.
Instead of having to pay someone to clean your air ducts, you can have them sealed (or replaced) by a professional, which will improve air quality in your home and save you some money on your utility bill each month. This will also take care of the need to have them cleaned periodically. Thomas HVAC offers free assessments to determine if you need air duct sealing or replacing.
