One of the most important parts of any HVAC system installed is the ductwork. However, many people disregard the importance of this feature and, instead, are left with unmanaged or poor quality ducts that cause more problems than they should. At Comfort Star, we work on a regular basis with people to try and offer a competitive, simple solution to ductwork issues that they have.
A failure to manage ductwork properly is a hazard, as well as a hassle. It can leave households dealing with extensive energy loss, and higher energy bills than they should have to pay at present.
This is a major issue, and one that causes significant consternation for home owners in the Houston area in particular. On average, a ductwork system that is not at full operational capacity could be losing as much as 40% of the energy that it should be providing to the home as hot or cool air. It may sound like a small amount today – add it up over the year, though, and those expenses soon add up.
The central furnace, the heat pump and/or air conditioning system need quality ductwork as much as anything else to perform at their operational peak. This is why we offer a comprehensive ductwork repair service; to get in about the problem, find a solution and put it in place.
Simply moving the duct from the attic to the basement is not enough to stop the problems from forming in the first place, however. We’ll look to make that as clear as possible, developing a consistent and detailed approach to ductwork repair and maintenance that solves any typical issues you may have.
Really, the energy loss – and the financial hit – taken from damaged or poor quality ductwork can be an immense cost to you every year.
Ductwork Repair Experts
One of the main reasons to hire our Houston ductwork repair team is the range of corrections we can put in place. When you hire us, you can get help with solving major problems with ducts, including:
- A leaky duct connection that causes a limitation in the performance or persistence of the system.
- Returning leaks that won’t seem to stay fixed through DIY or minor repairs.
- Furniture’s blocking the register, hampering performance and limiting freedom in the ducts.
- Leaks at the furnace and filler slots, or duct taping failures allowing energy to escape without knowledge.
- Supply leaking and disk insulation issues.
- Kinks in the ductwork which restricts airflow.
Another major issue that we regularly come across when carrying out ductwork repair in Houston is excessive dampness. This can be caused by unconditioned air being sucked into the HVAC system against its knowledge, creating an increased workload and reducing performance massively. Naturally, this is a major issue and can deeply limit the enjoyment you get from using your cooling system.
This is a major design flaw in many ductwork systems, and we work to correct these problems as soon as possible with a reliable solution that corrects gaps.
