It circulates cold or warm air in the whole house to make your family comfortable even during severe weather conditions.

Proper Duct Installation
There are many different materials used for HVAC duct installation, but some of them should only be used in certain environments and some should not. For example, metal duct and duct board are both available, but there are some locations when you have to use a duct board instead of metal. If the wrong materials are installed, it may cause many problems and your air duct installation can be just a waste of your money and time.
Properly Sizing the Ductwork Installation
Depending on the material you will use, the size of your HVAC unit, and the length of the trunk line, you will have different duct sizes. Our team knows how to properly determine the right size of your duct so that it can circulate the air all over your house.
New Air Ducts
Even though you cannot see the air ducts in your house as they are hidden in the ceilings and walls, there are some signs that you need to replace your ductwork.
- Ineffective cooling and heating – unbalanced ductwork can cause inconsistent temperatures and can increase your energy bill. When there is air leakage, your HVAC system may tend to work harder in order to balance the thermostat settings. Some areas of the house may be hotter or colder than other areas.
- Poor air quality – if the house is particularly dusty or stuffy or your allergies are acting up, it is possible that your ducts are improperly sealed or they have holes or gaps. When this happens, dust from outside the air ducts can get inside, travel through them, and end up inside the house. This does not just pose a threat to your family’s health, but it can also leak water, and damage furniture and other properties in your home.
- Noisy HVAC system – an HVAC unit must run pretty quietly. If it is extremely noisy, it is possible that your ducts are imbalanced or the ducts are too small for the HVAC system. The HVAC may have a hard time pushing air through a small opening, so it stresses the system and increases your energy bill.
- You smell mildew – if there is a different smell coming from the ducts, it is possible that there is mold inside. When warm, moist air sometimes passes through cold ductwork and forms condensation. This usually happens if the air ducts are not well-insulated or if the air circulating in the ducts is exceptionally humid. As time passes, condensation can promote the growth of mold within the ducts, which blows smelly and unhealthy air into the house. Moreover, air ducts can leak condensation than may cause mold to grow inside the ceiling.
