Is Your Ductwork Compromised?
Is your ductwork leaking air into unoccupied areas of your home? Is the poor indoor air quality in your living space caused by damaged or dirty ductwork? If you don’t know the answers to these questions, it’s time to trust a pro. You’ll need duct testing services to see where areas of opportunities are, and this should be followed up with professional duct sealing, repair, or replacement—perhaps even duct cleaning.
Without duct testing, there are still signs you can watch out for that indicated your air ducts are compromised:
- Higher Than Average HVAC Bills: Are your heating and cooling bills considerably higher than what you paid at the same time the year before, or higher than what your neighbors are paying for similar use? This is a sign that your HVAC system is inefficient, and it could very well be duct leakage that is to blame.
- Musty Odors Coming from Your Vents: Duct leakage not only releases dust and debris into your home, but it can draw in moisture and particles from your attic and between walls. This eventually causes a detectable musty odor to waft through your vents.
- A Drop in Airflow: If the airflow coming through your room vents seems sluggish, it could be you have an HVAC system problem. However, a likely culprit is compromised ductwork, and you may need duct sealing or duct repair.
The Importance of Regular Duct Cleaning Services
Homeowners often are unaware of the dust and debris that are lurking in their network of ducts, making their family members ill and overall contributing to lower air quality. Over the years, air ducts accumulate a great deal of dust and other indoor allergens, but the problem goes beyond that. Ductwork also collects pollen, pet dander, mold spores, bacteria, and even viruses.
How do you combat this? With professional duct cleaning service. This isn’t something you’ll need each year, but having professional duct cleaning services done every few years will do your home and family a world of good. If you don’t remember the last time your ductwork was professionally cleaned, now is the time to call our Akron, OH team!
Reach Out for Professional Duct Repair and Duct Replacement
Duct repair, duct replacement, and duct sealing are all services that should be left to the pros. Ductwork is largely inaccessible to homeowners, and trying to fix it on your own could unintentionally do more harm than good.
Professional duct sealing requires a special, commercial grade mastic sealant that we apply to the impacted ductwork—store-bought duct tape will not do the trick! Despite its name, it actually turns brittle with temperature fluctuations, and fails rather quickly as result. Ask our Akron, OH comfort consultants about the Aeroseal method for thorough duct sealing and repair.
For more serious ductwork breaches, extensive duct repair or even duct replacement may be needed. If your air ducts have gaping holes or loose connections, that section may need replacing. The same goes for if your ductwork was improperly sized. The only way to tell for sure what your ductwork needs are, is to contact our highly trained and experience professionals.
