Ellett Air Conditioning & Heating's Duct System Repairs Will Lower Energy Costs and Increase Comfort in Home or Office
November 16, 2016
The importance of breathing healthy air in your Texas home or office cannot be stressed enough. Air quality can and will affect the quality of your life at home, and on the job.
The intricate maze of air ducts, vents and heating and cooling systems are designed to make your home and office more comfortable and safe by keeping you from becoming ill. However, this system can host a variety of pollutants such as mold, mildew and dust mites (just to name a few). If you live in north Texas and your residence or business is at least one-year-old, these contaminants may be clinging to every square inch of the air duct system.
Your air duct system distributes conditioned air throughout the interior, particularly in forced-air systems. However, up to 20% of this air can be lost as a result of holes, leaks, and poor connectivity within the ducts. As a result, you pay more for utility bills, and encounter increased difficulty in trying to keep your interior comfortable no matter how low or high you set the thermostat. A properly-sealed and well-designed duct system will also make your home or office safer.
If you think your duct system is costing you money and/or comfort, please contact Ellett Air Conditioning & Heating, Inc. A highly-trained Ellett technician will inspect your entire duct system, including the attic, crawlspace, garage and basement to evaluate its supply and return air balance. They will repair all damaged and disconnected ducts, and will also straighten tangled or crushed flexible ducts.
The technician will be certain to seal all leaks and connections with mastic or metal tape, or with an aerosol-based sealant. All grills and registers will be tightly sealed to the ducts. Improvements to your duct system also will include a brand new filter, and your system’s air flow will be closely evaluated.
Finally, your technician will ensure that there is no back-drafting of gas or oil-burning appliances, and they will conduct a combustion safety test after each of the ducts have been sealed.
