Our Duct Repair Options

We offer a wide range of ductwork improvement services for your needs:

Duct Sealing: We perform airflow and leakage tests, seal air leaks and connections, and repair disconnected ducts to help improve the performance of your ductwork and heating and air conditioning system.

Duct Insulation: Adding insulation to your ducts in unconditioned spaces, like your attic or basement, can help improve your comfort and HVAC energy efficiency.

Duct Cleaning: If you have dust, dirt, or pet hair buildup inside your ducts, a thorough cleaning can remove debris and allergens to help improve your indoor air quality and HVAC system efficiency and reduce allergy and asthma symptoms.

Before performing work on ducts, we inspect the whole duct system, including the attic, basement and crawl space, and evaluate supply and return air balance. After making duct improvements, we test for leakage and airflow and perform a combustion safety test.

Causes of your poor ductwork performance

HVAC ducts in an unconditioned attic

Heating and cooling ducts in an unconditioned attic can cause uneven temperatures inside your living space.

Problems with your ductwork can make your energy costs higher and make it difficult to keep your whole home comfortable, no matter how much you adjust your thermostat. Here are some issues that could be behind your poorly performing ducts:

  • Leaky ducts: Oftentimes these temperature issues arise because the hot, or cold, the air is not actually reaching its intended destination. Duct leakage is letting the air escape before it has arrived in the correct room. This tends to force your HVAC system to stay on longer and longer in order to get the effected rooms to the right temperature.
  • Under-insulated ducts: A lack of proper insulation often causes the ducts themselves to be too hot or cool. Thus the HVAC system actually has to waste time heating or cooling the ducts before rooms can receive the correct temperature air. This leads to a higher heating/cooling bill and may even leave certain rooms still improperly heated/cooled.
  • Ducts with unbalanced airflow: Sometimes the register location can also cause problems. Certain rooms might end up receiving too much airflow from your HVAC system while others might end up largely ignored.
