Ventilation & Ductwork
Common VentIlation and Ductwork Problems
If you have an issue with airflow in your home, it’s possible that the issue is not with your HVAC system, but with your ductwork and venting. Supply ducts push the hot or cold air from your furnace or A/C throughout your home, and return ducts send airflow back to the unit. Without a well-maintained duct system, your HVAC system has to work longer and harder - affecting your comfort and causing your energy bills to rise. Additionally, having a poor duct system can negatively affect your health, causing irritation to those prone to allergies, asthma, sinus congestion, and respiratory infections. Here are some common problems that could be affecting your venting and ductwork system:
- Your Duct System is Poorly Designed
- The Ducts are Leaking
- They’re Not Properly Insulated or Not Insulated at All
- They’re Damaged
- The Registers are Loose are Improperly Sealed
- Ductwork Needs to be Cleaned

We Can Design and Install a New Venting & Ductwork System in Your Home!
A proper venting and ductwork system is imperative to good airflow in your home, and installing a new system all starts with heating and cooling load calculations. Before we can begin design, our technicians have to figure out how much heating and cooling each room needs. We calculate this in BTU/hr, which then translates to room-to-room air flow requirements in cubic feet per minute (cfm). Once we’ve found the correct numbers for each room in your home, we’ll select the equipment that will best meet the entire structure’s heating and cooling load requirements. After that, the process of designing and installing your solution begins.
