Ductwork Replacement Apex NC
The best HVAC system money can buy won’t work if the ductwork has problems. The ducts funnel warm or cool air to the vents in your home or office. If the ducts are not free and open, that air you are paying to warm or cool will not get where it needs to be. That’s wasted money, wasted energy, and depending on the kind business you are running, ruined products.
What can cause ductwork failure? The most common problems we see are physical damage and age. Physical damage can come from a lot places.
• Accidents. Someone just runs into exposed ductwork and pinches the pipe shut. Hidden ducts can also be affected if the wall, ceiling or floor concealing the lines is damaged.
• Age. This is especially common with the seals around the ductwork. Seals do not last forever. When they age and fall off, that’s a place for warm or cool air to escape. Replace the seals to stop this waste. Ductwork also ages and may need to be replaced.
• Environmental damage. Exposed ductwork can rust from rain or from chemicals in the work environment. Rust leads to holes and the eventual collapse of the ductwork.
• Pest damage. Rodents are a common source of ductwork damage, especially on the insulation on some ductwork. Feral cats are another major problem with ductwork. Other animals like raccoons, opossums and squirrels can create a lot of damage. The animals can tear holes in the ductwork or open the ducts where a seal failed and start living in the ducts. If you are hearing unusual sounds from the ductwork like scratching and small feet running, you’ve got a problem. Call us immediately. In addition to losing money, the animals are a real health hazard to any employees.
