The ductwork is one of the most underrated, yet crucial, components of the heating and air system. Because it is usually installed behind concealed spaces most homeowners don’t pay it much mind.
Unfortunately, that can be a huge mistake, as the ductwork of any home or building is a crucially complex intertwined system, responsible for the proper delivery of cold air and heat throughout the building.
This complex system needs upkeep just like the HVAC system itself. And that’s where our Long Island duct repair and replacement services come in handy. We’ve been in the business long enough to see every scenario possible.
From improperly designed systems to undermaintained ducts and animal infestations, we’ve seen it all. Not only have our techs seen it all, but they’ve tackled it all. Like the heating and air system itself, once that ductwork reaches 10 years of age or more, you can start expecting to see big problems.
Faulty Air Ducts
Malfunctioning ductwork can have a variety of effects on the home. Starting with inefficiency. Faulty malfunctioning ducts can cause your system to lose as much as 25% of its produced air. Just imagine how much more comfortable or effective your system would be if it was pumping out 25% more cold or hot air during operation.
Damaged ductwork not only affects the quality of life and overall efficiency of the unit but can create hazardous environments as well. Part of your system uses negative pressure to circulate air.
If part of this negative pressure side runs through the attic or crawl space and develops even the slightest of leaks, it could be sucking in that air and circulating it throughout the home. There is also the potential for mold development when the supply side (positive pressure side) leaks out cold air in warmer environments.
The best defense to prevent these situations is the same approach you would take with your system. Bring in a specialist regularly to inspect and maintain your system. We are more than well enough equipped to handle this.
