Ductwork Solutions

Ductwork Solutions

Homes and buildings in Frederick MD that rely on a central air conditioning system or a forced air heating system use a network of ducts in order to distribute cool or warm air throughout your home. In order for your ductwork to do its job properly, it should be in perfect working conditions at all times. Poorly installed or improperly maintained ductwork can lead to serious problems including energy wastage, health hazards, and uneasiness in your own home.

Ductwork leak repair, insulation improvement, and balancing in Frederick MD

A faulty ductwork can cost you hundreds, if not thousands of dollars in wasted energy. The US Department of Energy estimates that home heating systems can lose as much as 20-30 percent of their heat because of leaks and insufficient insulation in the ductwork.

At TriState Home Services, we have skilled and experienced technicians who can assess your ductwork and perform the necessary tests and repairs in order to restore it to its good working condition. We can:

  • Inspect your ductwork and professionally test its efficiency
  • Recommend the best course of action for its rehabilitation
  • Repair and seal ductwork leaks
  • Install insulating elements to improve the ductwork’s energy efficiency
  • Perform duct flow balancing to even out warm and cool air circulation in all areas of the property

Although you can’t see ductwork in general, you may have ducts that have been improperly routed, crimped, crushed, excessively bent or disconnected. It is very important to get your duct system checked out by professionals for the health and efficiency of your home.

A duct system is used in air heating and in air cooling your home. These ducts are a collection of tubes that run in between floors and ceilings in your home distributing heated or cooled air to the various rooms. Poorly insulated duct systems can contribute to airflow problems. Signs of leaky ducts include dirt, dust or condensation around the air return grilles.

Insulation

Airflow problems usually stem from a lack of proper insulation. When ducts are poorly insulated, air leaks out, leading to increased energy output and poor air flow into the home, increasing the energy bills.

Leaks

Leaky duct systems occur when connections and joints are loose. Condensation around the air return grilles may occur if there is a duct leaking cold air in the attic near the boot that connects to the grille. As the air conditioner blows cool air through the ducts, these leaks cause a decrease in air flow pressure and air escapes, resulting in a hotter, uncomfortable room. In addition, the air conditioning has to work harder and takes longer to cool your home.

Ductwork Repair: When to Get It

Duct repairs become necessary when your heating and air conditioning system feels as if it’s slowing down, becoming less effective and resulting in the inability to cool or heat a space that it once did easily. These signs mean that there is a duct problem that needs to be addressed immediatey.

It’s definitely good to call in a professional to repair those duct systems. Common methods for sealing ducts involve commercial HVAC tape and mastic. But if the ducts are really old, leaky and lack adequate insulation, then the best option may be to upgrade to new, insulated flex ducts.

Our experienced technicians have the knowledge needed to repair your ductwork, making sure it’s properly sealed and insulated for optimal home energy efficiency. By repairing your ducts, you’ll likely save money on your cooling and heating bills. It will also improve the comfort of your home.
