Ductwork is a critical part of your heating, ventilation and cooling system. This specially designed flexible piping channels warm or cool air from your unit into your home. Without it, even the best systems are completely useless.
Unfortunately, homeowners often overlook ductwork when it comes to home maintenance and repairs. Many people go by the adage “out of sight, out of mind” and may not think about having it checked. Unfortunately, neglecting your ductwork can cost you big.
Why Your Ductwork Needs Maintenance
Damaged ductwork poses a big problem for your HVAC units. If the piping is crushed, kinked, or routed poorly, it forces the heater and air conditioner to work harder to deliver air. This strain runs up your power bill by tacking on costs for power you probably don’t even realize you’re wasting. This is especially true if your ductwork has holes or other damage and is dumping the conditioned air back into attics or crawlspaces.
Higher pressure and other failures in your ductwork can even shorten the lifespan of your equipment. The additional strain can seriously harm internal parts, because the units aren’t supposed to function under such conditions. Over time, this damage adds up and can force you to replace the entire unit years earlier.
Freedom Air and Heat Cleanings and Maintenance
At Freedom Air and Heat, our experts know how to properly clean and repair the delicate ductwork material without damage. We can help you pinpoint problems and fix them before they become more serious and costly, helping to protect your investment in your HVAC system.
Ductwork cleanings can also help improve indoor air quality for you and your family. Allergens and dust can build up within the ridges of the ducts and circulate irritants within your home. Filters are, of course, designed to prevent this, but not changing them frequently or using filters that are the wrong size can lead to further issues. With our cleaning services, you’ll get added peace of mind.
