Indoor Air Quality
Commercial HVAC Services
- Maintenance Program
If your home is like most, it has a branching network of air ducts leading from the air conditioner and heater to each of the room vents. Made from metal, plastic, and ductboard, these air shafts are a critical part of the comfort and air quality of your home. Poor duct construction, or ducts that are developing gaps and holes, will have a negative impact on how well your HVAC system operates, leading to a drop in comfort and a rise in your utility bills. Bad ductwork can even cause damage to the AC and heater.
In order to find out if your ducts need to have repairs and sealing, you can schedule a duct inspection with HVAC professionals.

We not only inspect ducts to find out where they’re losing air and require repair work, but we can do the repair work as well.

Why Duct Inspections Are Worthwhile
Because you can’t see most of the ductwork in your home, it’s not a part of the building that you give much consideration. But faults in ducts can cost you a lot in terms of comfort, budget, and air quality.
The U.S. Department of Energy has found through tests that up to 30% of the air moving through a ventilation system can be lost to gaps and holes in the ducts. That is a great deal of air that you pay to heat and cool that doesn’t even end up reaching the rooms. Inspections will find if your ducts are bleeding away money and fix it so your bills are under control. Those air leaks are also places where stale air and dust and other debris can get inside the ductwork, leading to a decline in indoor air quality.
When Should I Call for Duct Inspections?
We pointed out that ducts stay primarily disguised from sight, so how will you know you need inspections done to check for damage? You’ll have to watch out for a number of warning signs. The most obvious is a rise in heating and cooling bills that you can’t account for in other ways. This often indicates that air is escaping through leaks. Also pay attention to musty and moldy smells emanating from the vents, or rattling noises from the ducts that indicate sections are coming loose.
You should also call for regular duct inspections every few years, even if you don’t notice anything out of the ordinary. These routine inspections will see that your ventilation system remains as airtight as possible.
