Common Ductwork Repairs
Duct Leaks: Air leaks in the ductwork can lead to energy wastage, reduced system efficiency, and uneven airflow. Repairing duct leaks involves identifying the source of the leaks and sealing them using appropriate materials such as mastic or metal tape.
Damaged Duct Sections: Over time, duct sections can become damaged due to wear and tear, improper installation, or external factors. Common issues include cracks, holes, or disconnected joints. Repairing damaged duct sections involves replacing or repairing the affected portions to restore proper airflow.
Insulation Issues: Damaged or insufficient insulation leads to heat gain or loss within the ductwork, affecting the efficiency of the HVAC system. Repairing insulation issues involves replacing damaged insulation or adding insulation where it is inadequate.
Obstructions and Blockages: Ductwork can become clogged or obstructed by debris, dust, or even pests. These obstructions restrict airflow and can lead to poor indoor air quality. Repairing obstructions involves removing the blockages and thoroughly cleaning the ducts.
Improper Duct Sizing: Incorrectly sized ductwork can result in inadequate airflow or excessive pressure within the system. This can cause discomfort, reduced energy efficiency, and potential damage to the HVAC components. Repairing improper duct sizing may involve resizing or reconfiguring the ductwork to ensure proper airflow.
How Hard is it to Replace Ductwork?
Commercial ductwork replacement may be necessary due to age, deterioration, inadequate performance, system upgrades or renovations, or indoor air quality concerns. The difficulty depends on the size of the commercial space, the accessibility of the ductwork, and the complexity of the system's layout.
