Ductwork & Cleaning in Calgary
When our furnace or air conditioners fail we usually notice quite quickly, but what about the ductwork. The ductwork in your home is like its circulatory system, moving cold or heated air throughout the entire house making you feel comfortable even during our extreme Calgary weather conditions. Ductwork that is always clean, well-insulated, and in a good condition should last as long as 10-15 years so long as quality materials were used and no shortcuts were taken during installation.
Old, poorly maintained, and worn out ductwork can cause several problems in your home including ineffective heating and cooling, and energy inefficiency. Air leakage can cause your HVAC system to work harder, increasing energy bills while some areas of your home may get more heated or cold compared to other areas. Leaky ducts suck in dust, pollen, and other pollutants from the environment and circulate them in the entire house contributing to poor indoor air quality and circulating allergens can cause several health problems.
Just in Time Furnace carries and installs vents, including a fresh air intake vent pre-filter system, and ductwork for residential homes. At Just in Time Furnace, we’re committed to providing a healthy, safe, and energy efficient environment for your home or business. If you’re considering replacing your furnace, air conditioning, or entire HVAC System don’t forget about upgrading your ductwork. There are a number of items to consider in making your decision.
Begin by considering age. Over the years materials have changed so while older ducts may be more solid, their construction may lead to leaking around seams and joints, especially with new high-efficiency forced-air furnaces. Newer flexible ductwork, especially in exposed areas such as crawl spaces and attics can be prone to holes or tears. You should also look out for disconnected joints or eroded duct tape.
You may also want to check the air flow in each room of your house when the HVAC system is running and see if the air flow is proper at all places. If you see any irregularities or temperature variations, it may be a sign of a clogged, leaking, or eroding ductwork. You can also schedule a duct blower test to tell how well your ductwork is working.
