Problems that Might Exist in Your Ductwork
Before you call for duct repair, it’s important to know what issues you might be facing. Ductwork, by its nature is very resilient. Usually made with a heavy material like sheet metal, ductwork is designed to last and to withstand high temperatures and heavy airflow.
So, it doesn’t just fall apart. However, it is also put under a lot of stress for years at a time and is often neglected during routine inspections and maintenance visits. So, with enough time, small problems can develop such as cracks in joints, tears in insulation or build ups of dirt and debris that slow air flow.
Dents or cracks from pests or structural movement can also be major issues that will both impede air flow and result in air flow escape. In some cases, if you have exhaust ductwork that has been compromised, fumes and gasses might be escaping into your home, significantly reducing air quality and making your home unsafe for family members and pets alike.
How Duct Repair Works
Our duct repair services start by identifying the problem. This is done by performing full duct testing. During these tests, we pressurize your ductwork and check for places where air flow is interrupted by a crack or leak.
Once we find the source of the problem, we can work toward repairing it, either by accessing the ductwork directly or by inserting a new liner into the ductwork that will patch the leak. The exact nature of the repair will depend on the severity of the problem. In some cases, we may even recommend replacement if the damage is severe enough.
