Ductwork Repair & Replacement Services
Why it is Important to Have Well-Sealed Ductwork
A well-functioning HVAC (Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning) system is essential for making your residential or commercial property comfortable through the chilly South Carolina winters and hot Charleston summers. If you have leaky ductwork, no matter how energy efficient your unit is, it will not work correctly.
Leaky ducts are a significant reason behind inefficient systems, resulting in poor air distribution and high energy costs due to improperly sealed systems. Up to 40% of cooled air can be lost in your attic. If your ducts have cracks, holes, or gaps, bacteria, mold, and other harmful pathogens can enter your home or business.
An HVAC system constantly turning on and off as it tries to regulate your home’s temperature can put a great deal of wear and tear on the system, necessitating early repairs or even replacement.
How Do I Know if My Air Duct is Leaking?
Several things will easily tell you if your ductwork is leaking. First, you might feel certain rooms in your home or business are rarely at the right temperature. You can put your hand or a tissue against a register and see if there is any airflow.
Too-cold or too-hot rooms might have little or no air coming through the registers. You might even notice there is always dust around your registers. And perhaps most apparent of all, your property’s heating and cooling bills are more expensive than usual.
Our team of experts at Smoak’s Comfort Control can help. Properly sealed and insulated ductwork will solve these inefficiencies while increasing the airflow within your home or business and improving air quality. It can also reduce safety hazards due to backdrafting, which is when combustion gases get released into the house instead of being vented to the outside.
The next thing to do is determine whether you should repair or replace your ductwork.
