Signs You Need Ductwork Services
It’s important to closely monitor and regularly inspect your ductwork for signs of problems. Poor design, leaks, inadequate insulation, and age are common causes of ductwork failure.
Signs that you require ductwork services include:
- Strange noises from ducts
- Worsened allergy and respiratory symptoms
- Inconsistent temperatures throughout the home
- Increased dust in the air and on surfaces
- Mold or mildew odors
- Diminished airflow through registers
- Visible damage to ducts
At Albemarle Heating & Air, our technicians use the latest techniques and high-quality products to repair damaged ductwork.
The most common causes of ductwork failure include:
- Air leakage: This occurs when ducts separate and is usually caused by temperature fluctuations, high indoor humidity levels, vibration, corrosion, or poor installation.
- Underinsulation: When ducts are poorly insulated, the heated or cooled air passing through the duct will not reach the register at the desired temperature.
- Improper airflow: This can occur when ducts are improperly sized for your HVAC system or when there is a blockage within the ductwork.
Ductwork Installation & Replacement
Our technicians will carefully design and install ductwork that fits the home and HVAC system.
Depending on the size of your home, the process typically takes two to three days. We will secure all required permits and schedule the work at a time best suited to your schedule.
Our technicians adhere to strict safety and quality standards, and we guarantee we will work efficiently to complete the installation or replacement of your ductwork.
Should I Repair or Replace My Air Ducts?
Ideally, you should replace your ducts every 10 years. The older your ducts, the more likely they will suffer structural failure.
If the ducts are relatively new and the problem is minor, such as leaky ducts, loss of insulation, or similar issues, then repair is usually advisable.
However, replacement is often the better option if the ducts are older and beginning to exhibit increasingly frequent problems. Likewise, if the problems are caused by poor design or installation, replacing the ducts can significantly improve your comfort and the efficiency of your HVAC systems.
