When living in Arizona, you know all too well how important having a fully functioning AC is. Sitting in a home in the middle of summer without an AC unit is not only uncomfortable but often dangerous. That is why having all duct repair performed by a professional is important. Far too often homeowners try to repair issues on their own, which can reduce the functionality of the AC, force the air conditioner to go into overdrive (increasing energy bills) or even open up to the potential of electrical fires. That is why, if you are experiencing some sort of AC problem, you should bring in the professionals to identify if there is an issue with the unit or if duct work is required.
Did you know your home most likely loses 20 to 40 percent of all cool air through leaking ductwork? Maybe the ducts have a tear somewhere or are not tightened properly. Whatever the problem is, this results in a drastic increase in your energy bills.
Saving 40 percent off your AC usage can bring that price down, especially during the long summer months. Additionally, having your ducts sealed properly helps maintain a comfortable temperature inside of every room.
One of the most common problems when it comes to ductwork is when a home owner attempts to install ductwork on their own. Improperly designed ducts reduce efficiency of the AC (and even the heater). This results in a loss of energy and an increase in utility costs.
A duct repair specialist can come and inspect your duct system in order to see what might be causing the problem and what can be done to correct it.
The air your HVAC system generates is temperature controlled. However, far too many homes use non-insulated ducts. This leads to leaks, especially when the air around the ducts is hot. The metal of the ductwork expands and contracts, so when there are two different temperatures touching the inside and outside of the duct, it results in parts of the metal expanding and contracting. All of this leads to air leaks, a less than comfortable home and a rising energy bill. This is not something you should be forced to deal with, which is why duct repair can correct these situations.
