Air Ducts

Air duct service.

According to PG&E, leaky ducts in attics or crawlspaces can account for 30 percent of a home's heating and cooling energy losses. This results in higher utility bills for you and difficulty keeping your home comfortable.

If you have leaky ducts, here are a few signs you may notice:

  • High utility bills in summer and winter
  • Difficult-to-heat-and-cool rooms
  • Stuffy rooms that never seem to feel comfortable
  • Notice a lot of dust in the home and/or around the air grilles

What Can You Do About Leaky Ducts?

Run your system, and check all the ducts and joints you can access. If you suspect leaks, call us at 408.317.2950. Leaks can be sealed with mastic or foil-backed tape. Duct tape is actually not recommended for ductwork, and any fabric-backed tape will deteriorate over time. We prefer to use professional-grade sealing products such as hardcast duct sealant.

Air Duct Insulation

We recommend insulating your ducts. This ensures that the air maintains the correct temperature as it travels to the living spaces in your home.

Air Duct Replacement

When your ductwork can no longer be repaired of its leaks, it’s time for a replacement. Or if you are upgrading or retrofitting your HVAC system, you may need replacement ducts. They are such an important part of your heating and cooling system as well as your indoor air quality. Be sure you talk to our experts so you are ensured of a job well done.

Indoor Air Quality

Indoor Air Quality, or IAQ, is very important to the health and well-being of you and your family.
