Duct Repair & Duct Replacement…Austin Style
Did You Know You Maybe Heating or Cooling your Attic?
When was the last time you checked your attic’s ductwork? Were the ducts grey? Were they falling apart? If you haven’t checked lately, and your home was built in the 70s, 80s, or early 90s, there’s a high probability your ducts are in poor condition
A-Plus is a master in the art of duct sealing and duct repair. Duct sealing includes duct replacement and solving airflow issues to make sure there’s no air leaking from the ducts into the attic from your HVAC system or that you are not sucking hot, unclean air from the attic into your home. We’ll make sure you’re not paying to heat or cool your attic. Replacement of faulty, older ducts, or deteriorated duct boards also enhances airflow throughout your home or business, making your home more comfortable.
The Benefits of a ‘Tight’, Insulated Duct System in Your Austin Home
Our top priority is making sure the conditioned air generated by your AC remains a constant temperature as it travels through the ductwork and blows out at the register and grille. Keeping your ductwork system “tightly” insulated provides other benefits to your home and family.
A Sealed, Insulated Duct System Throughout Your System’s Ductwork Helps:
- Reduce the time your air conditioner runs
- Reduces energy usage and operational costs
- Reduce the concentration and amounts of pollutants & allergens drawn into your home from outside
- Improves overall indoor air quality
These benefits will help make the temperature and environment inside your home not only more consistent, but also significantly healthier.
A-Plus Does Austin Air Balancing & Zoning
Sealing the ductwork throughout your home is the first step to improving overall performance. Many utility companies in the Austin and surrounding areas offer rebates for getting this kind of work done. Additionally, if there are rooms in your home or office heating and cooling unevenly, you should consider balancing the airflow so all the rooms heat and cool evenly. If you have a two story home with one HVAC system, you might also consider having your AC system zoned. This includes installing separate thermostats to regulate different areas or “zones” within your home or business.
Your HVAC System Has Two Parts:
The Mechanical System & The Ductwork
The cooling and heating system in your home or business is comprised of two main parts: The mechanical system that produces the cold and hot air, and the duct system that distributes the air. At A-Plus Air Conditioning & Home Solutions, when there is an air flow issue, we generally find the culprit to be a poorly-designed duct system, with either undersized ducts, improperly installed “splitters,” and/or ducts without dampers, which the amount of airflow cannot be increased or decreased. The problem might rear its ugly head during the home’s construction or after a home addition. We can determine the balancing issue and solution through a visual audit, use duct blaster or flow hood test.
We Know The Science of
HVAC Service, Repair, & Balancing
Proper sizing of the heating and cooling system, as well as proper duct sizing, is a science. At A-Plus Air Conditioning & Home Solutions, we are trained, certified and extensively experienced in heating and cooling, as well as proper ductwork sizing. Most homes with air flow problems can be improved by adjusting, resizing, and/or balancing the duct work to provide proper, balanced air flow to each room.
