Certified Duct Repair in Canoga Park
Air ducts are a vital component of the heating and cooling system yet often overlooked. Many times, complaints with unpleasant smells, rising utility bills, inconsistent comfort and excessive dust can be blamed on the ductwork. In Canoga Park, California, where temperature control is a concern nearly year round, it’s especially important to be conscientious about duct services. Get in touch with the EPA- and NATE-certified professionals from SoCal Climate Control for proper maintenance and repairs.
Here are six common duct problems SoCal Climate Control is happy to address and resolve:
- Poor design – The minimum amount of distance and obstructions is the best way to transfer air from one location to another. Ductwork with extra bends and convoluted patterns diminish heating and cooling efficiency, resulting in higher costs and inferior comfort.
- Lack of insulation – If the ducts aren’t properly insulated or not insulated at all, a great deal of heated or cooled air is definitely escaping. This forces the HVAC system to run more often, carry a bigger workload and use more energy.
- Dirt buildup – As dust, grime, pollen, dander, mold growth and all sorts of contaminants accumulate within the pipes, airflow diminishes. Plus these pollutants can become airborne, distributed throughout the home and negatively impact indoor air quality.
- Leaks – The average home wastes 20 to 40% of conditioned air to holes, cracks and loose or disconnected ductwork. When the maximum amount of heated/cooled air fails to reach the desired location, efficiency and reliability of equipment suffers right along with your comfort.
- Insufficient airflow – Any kinks, twists or obstructions that impede airflow are a problem. Flexible ductwork can even become crushed, resulting in major concerns with air circulation.
- Improperly sealed grills and registers – Everywhere ducts connect to registers, there’s the potential for air to escape. There’s also the worry over contaminants, insects and critters infiltrating the duct system. Sealing not only elevates energy efficiency but works to increase the reliability and lifespan of the system.
