Your home comfort equipment may heat and cool your home, but the system never performs at its full potential with faulty ductwork. The fact is that many forced air duct systems can reduce your system’s efficiency by up to 20%.

The EPA recommends that you have your duct system checked – either during an equipment replacement or a service call. Ask us about this when you call to set up your next appointment. 

Do you have a clunker of a duct system?

  • Do your filters get dirty quickly? Are there dirt streaks showing at the corners and seams of duct connections?
  • Do you have rooms that just do not get much air flow and never seem to feel comfortable?
  • Do you have ducts in your attic or crawl space?

Any or all of these conditions may be attributable to poorly performing ducts.

When contractors are fixing your ductwork, here are a few of the recommendations the EPA offers:

  • Inspect the whole distribution system, including attic and crawl spaces.
  • Seal leaks and connections with mastic or metal tape. Don’t use duct tape!
  • Determine if additional air return dampers or new zones are needed.

All spaces aren’t created equal. Sometimes, there’s just no room for cumbersome ductwork.

Ductless mini-split systems are more efficient than window units and offer efficient heating and cooling options for single rooms or whole homes. 

We’re happy to walk you through the best option for your home and your budget.
