Ductwork Installation in Katy, TX
At Eddie’s Heating and Air Conditioning, our team is highly experienced in ductwork installation. We know that poorly installed or damaged ductwork is nothing to take lightly. Because ductwork is the main aspect of your home’s ventilation system, issues with it can affect more than just how much air is coming out of your vents. When there are problems, you might have high energy bills, odd-smelling vents, poor airflow, and more.
Here’s what you need to know about ductwork installation and our services.
What Is Ductwork?
Ductwork is a ventilation system that is used in your home to distribute air. Your heating and air conditioning systems both run through your home’s ductwork. Ductwork functions by taking in the air from around your home, heating or cooling it by sending it, and then returning it through the vents as fresh air. Keeping the temperature regulated in your home relies heavily on having ductwork that is operating correctly. Both intake and outtake are crucial in ensuring that your air systems work to the best of their ability as well. Any blockages can result in issues leading to the inability to control temperature, problems with air pressure, and more.
What Is Ductwork Installation?
Ductwork installation is the process of installing a new ventilation system that includes ducts that transport the air throughout your home. When getting ductwork installed, it’s important to go to an HVAC business you can trust, like us here at Eddie’s Heating and Air Conditioning.
Temperature regulation and proper airflow throughout your home depend on proper ductwork installation that can properly take in and put back out air. With poor installation, ducts may not be sealed properly, which can quickly lead to leakages in the ducts, poor climate control, and high energy bills. Our team prides itself on high-quality, efficient ductwork installation that gets the job done.
How Often Should a Home’s Ductwork Be Replaced?
The typical life of the average ductwork system is anywhere from ten to twenty years, or more, depending on the kind of stress it goes through and how well it stands up over time. If it was poorly installed, it might not last as long due to poor seals and pulling apart. You should have your ductwork examined every few years, at the least, and replace it around every 15-20 years. If you move into a new home, it’s always a good idea to have the ductwork examined.
Signs You May Need Your Ductwork Replaced
It’s not always easy to tell when you may need ductwork repair or replacement, especially because you can’t see many of your ducts or vents in the first place. Here are some warning signs to look out for that mean it’s time to have new ductwork installed:
- Musty smells
- Excessive dust
- Moisture in the air, especially in warm weather
- Irregular ventilation (one room is much colder than another)
- Extremely dry air in chilly weather
- Allergies that don’t seem to go away or asthma flare-ups
- Unexplainable high energy bills
