Out of plain sight it quietly performs one of the most critical tasks in the proper operation of your home’s cooling and heating system. Ductwork. Hidden behind walls, in attics and crawl spaces, it moves large volumes of warmed and cooled air between your central heating and cooling system and the peripheral registers situated throughout your home. If your ductwork is compromised, even by a small crack or seam leak anywhere along the way, efficiency can drop markedly and you would never even be aware of it… until you compare your utility bills with someone else’s whose system is running properly. Without even knowing it, you may in fact have the best air-conditioned and heated crawl spaces on your block, which translates into diminished performance and significantly higher energy bills.

But sometimes the problems with ducting start when brand new. Unbeknownst to most homeowners, nearly 70% of the duct systems installed in the United States are undersized for the cooling and heating equipment they service. This is a well-known means of cutting costs during construction. Proper ductwork is a crucial component of any HVAC system. For this reason, one of the most important services in the heating and cooling space is the actual design of your air distribution system.

Each living space has unique architectural features that require a one-of-a-kind custom ductwork design to effectively and efficiently distribute conditioned air throughout a home.

A common problem with ductwork is that it is often poorly engineered from inception. Too many hard turns, too many non-aerodynamic bends and actual dead ends cause subpar air distribution, forcing your HVAC to work much harder than it should. This can cause your entire system to not only operate less efficiently, but actually cost you more to operate. To stop wasting money on your utilities and paying for old design mistakes, made often before you moved into your home, call Around the Clock Heating and Air Conditioning to learn more about our custom engineered duct replacement program.
If air is coming out of your registers, you may not think much about your air ducts or their operational integrity. Since they’re generally out of sight, they are not usually something that is top-of-mind. The truth is ductwork is just as susceptible to degradation or wear and tear as any other part of your home comfort system. In fact it’s important to have your ductwork inspected and maintained along with the rest of your heating and cooling system.

There are a several recognizable signs that your home may need duct repair services. The most common one is that your heating and air conditioning is running more often to produce the same volume of air. Because there is a leak somewhere in your ductwork, your HVAC system works harder to compensate for the air loss, meaning they it stays on longer and pumps out more air. At first, this will be the only sign, but when you receive your next energy bill, you will likely see a spike in consumption due to all that extra hours of operation. This will likely continue and may even get worse if the problem is not fixed as your HVAC system is forced to work that much harder.

Another common sign of a leak is that certain rooms of your home don’t get enough heating or cooling. Air loss may be too much for your HVAC system to compensate for and the result is a loss of general comfort control in your home. This will be noticed more quickly, but is usually only apparent if there is a big leak or if the problem has persisted for many months.
If your heating or cooling costs rise without explanation, hot or cold spots develop, Around the Clock Heating and Air Conditioning has the knowhow to resolve the problem efficiently and cost-effectively.
