Do you use a forced air heating system to keep your home warm, such as a furnace or a heat pump? If so, then you know that you also use ductwork in order to distribute heated air throughout your living space. If that ductwork is damaged, then you are going to run into problems in doing so effectively.
Damaged ductwork can disrupt the heating of your home in a number of ways. It doesn’t matter if your air ducts have corroded due to condensation during the hot summer months — the result of “sweaty” ductwork — or if it was damaged during a renovation without your knowledge. It need to be repaired promptly. That is why you should schedule your duct repair in Maryville, WA with us as soon as possible.
Reduced Efficiency, Declining Indoor Air Quality, and Subpar Comfort
You don’t want to run into any of these problems in your home, right? Well, if you are trying to heat your home with leaky ductwork, these are the types of situations that you may encounter. When your air ducts leak, heat is going to be pulled right out of them. Heat always moves to cooler areas, remember. The result is that you may wind up heating the area surrounding the damaged duct, even if that is within a wall, rather than the bedroom that is too cold for comfort.
Your system will then work overtime trying to balance temperatures, and you’ll see your bills rise as a result, even as your comfort suffers. If you’re think that you can just access the ducts and slap some duct tape on them, think again. The likelihood of you pinpointing the source of the problem is minimal, and duct tape is not actually used for this purpose — not by anyone that knows what they’re doing, anyway.
Not only can we seal your air ducts if possible, but we also fabricate fittings in our fabrication shop. This is not something that most HVAC companies can offer. When we repair your air ducts, a strong, reliable fit is guaranteed. Give us a call if you have any concerns.
