Heating and Furnace
Furnace Air Ducts
Your heating system is complex machinery and a significant investment in your comfort. But if your air ducts are in need of repair or maintenance—or should be redesigned entirely—there's a good chance you're losing heat and spending more than you should on utility bills.
Ductwork makes a difference to your comfort
The design and condition of your furnace air ducts may depend on the age of your home. More new homes are being built with ductwork that travels through the conditioned living space. So by constructing an insulated zone between ceiling joists and a dropped ceiling—or between the walls in the corners of a room—ducts can now be placed where any leaks or lost air will actually contribute to the overall heating or cooling effect. But in other situations, air loss is not a desirable thing:
- Ducts that are poorly planned or installed may have loosely sealed joints that allow precious heated or cooled air to escape.
- Time can have the same effect on old ductwork, which may be unlikely to meet current standards.
- Even brand new ducts can become less efficient when placed in areas of extreme temperature highs and lows, such as attics.

We'll inspect your duct setup and let you know your options. It could be cleaning, some light repairs, or maybe a redesign.
