Using ductwork is a very common practice in heating and cooling a home. Central air conditioners, heat pumps, and furnaces all use ductwork in order to distribute heated and/or cooled air throughout properties. As effective as ductwork can be in distributing conditioned air throughout a home, though, there is no guarantee that your air ducts are always going to be in the great condition necessary for doing so successfully. In many instances, compromised air ducts can simply be repaired. In others, though, duct replacement in Fresno, CA may be the better option.
When Is Duct Replacement Necessary?
As we mentioned above, air ducts can often be sealed or repaired to resolve problems. However, this is not always the case. If, for instance, your air ducts are seriously corroded due to high moisture levels, a replacement may be necessary. It is also possible that problems with the sizing of your air ducts have been causing issues with heating or cooling your home, or that the ductwork was poorly planned and installed to begin with. In such cases, replacing that ductwork with a better-designed system, and using more appropriately sized ductwork, can benefit you greatly. Additionally, it is possible that your air ducts may have been damaged during a construction or remodeling project. In any event, you can trust our technicians to replace your ductwork successfully.
How Will I Know I Need Duct Replacement?
There is no way in which to know for certain if your ductwork will need to be replaced without enlisting the services of a professional to evaluate its condition. However, any problems heating and cooling your home effectively or evenly, or issues with your air ducts blowing pollutants throughout your home may indicate a replacement is a necessity. When in doubt, let the professionals on our staff inspect your ductwork and make informed suggestions.
