The Importance of Home Ductwork

ductwork installation

When homeowners think about their HVAC systems, they don’t often think of the ductwork that goes along with them. While your HVAC system is important for keeping your home warm in the winter and cool in the summer, it can’t do so efficiently without proper ductwork. Here, our ductwork installation experts explain the importance of ductwork:

Size

Just like it’s important to have an HVAC unit that’s sized to your home, it’s important to have ductwork that’s sized to your HVAC unit. Ductwork that’s too small can restrict the flow of your air and can in turn, damage your unit, while ductwork that’s too large can “leak” your air and reduce the efficiency of your system.

At Timothy Off, our ductwork installation experts can assess your current ductwork. We’ll determine whether it’s the proper size for your heating and cooling needs. If it’s not, we can install a new system to optimize your airflow.

Placement

In order for your ductwork to efficiently transport air, it needs to be placed in the right areas of your home. If your home has heating ducts, those heating ducts may be low to the floor. Therefore, they’re not in the most optimal spot for carrying cool air.

You may also not have enough ductwork throughout your home to take proper advantage of the HVAC system you have. No matter the case, we can determine whether your ductwork is in the best place. If not, we can perform a fast and easy ductwork installation to adjust it.

Sealing

Even if you have ductwork that’s properly sized and properly placed, it needs to be properly sealed. Leaky ductwork can not only reduce the comfort of your home, but it can also add up to extra costs and the need to run your heat or air conditioning longer.

Sealed ductwork works to keep warm or cool air inside of it. It also delivers the maximum amount of airflow to your vents. If it’s not, your heat or air conditioning will seep into your walls or floors and will never reach the right rooms. Talk to our experts today – we can make sure your ductwork is sealed well.
