Air Duct Repair and Replacement Services
If you use a central air conditioner or a forced-air heating system, such as a gas or electric furnace, in your home, then you use a system of ductwork to distribute that heated and cooled air throughout the living space. Doing so is a great way in which to keep one’s home comfortable, as forced air distribution allows you to either heat or cool your home in a prompt and effective manner. If you have problems with your ductwork, though, you’ll learn before long just how detrimental a situation this truly is.

Signs That You Need Duct Repair in Delaware County & The Main Line
While your air ducts are largely hidden from view, it’s possible to determine if they need professional repair services. You just cannot depend upon a visual inspection to tell you there’s trouble. There are quite a few warning signs that can indicate that your ducts are in need of repair, and the ability to recognize them is hugely beneficial. We’ll discuss a few of the more common red flags below.
First of all, always keep an eye on your heating and cooling costs. This is one of the best places to look if you suspect that there is a problem with your ductwork. While heated and cooled air that escapes your ductwork is not going to be a total loss, as it will wind up somewhere in your home, it is not going to make it to its intended destination. This means that your system will have to work harder in order to warm or cool your home evenly. For the same reason, uneven heating and cooling itself can also indicate the need for duct repair. Also, pay attention to your indoor air quality. If it is on the decline, it could be due to pollutants making their way into your air ducts, and then being distributed throughout your home via those ducts.
When to Repair, and When to Replace
In many instances, it will be possible to repair your ductwork. This is more complex a procedure than you may think, and trust us when we tell you that slapping some duct tape onto your air ducts is not the way to do the job. We may apply mastic that will harden to create a lasting seal, or fittings and other components may need to be swapped out.
In some instances, your ductwork may simply not be worth salvaging. It could be due to extensive damages or corrosion, or simply because your ductwork is not well designed and installed to begin with. Only a ductwork professional can determine what the right course of action is for your home. Contact us today, and we’ll complete any necessary duct repair or replacement services in your living space.
