Why must air ducts be insulated?

When air ducts are insulated, people enjoy better temperatures in the house. Air ducts are installed in places which are not heated (basement or attic). Air passing through the ducts will be affected by the temperatures of the duct walls. If they are insulated, air is kept at the right temperatures and you will not experience energy loss. This is one good reason why old air duct replacement is crucial.

What causes inefficient operation of the HVAC system?

The two most common problems are the accumulation of dust and dirt inside the system, and dust and leakage in the ducts. In both cases, timely action is required. The contaminants must be removed. Our technicians explain that protective coating can be applied for reducing the risk of future contamination. Leaks must be sealed with a strong and durable material.

How often should I have my air ducts cleaned?

Their most serious drawback is that they are potentially dangerous. There are two reasons for this. Firstly, they are more likely to trap lint compared to their metal counterparts. This means that they can get clogged more quickly and this naturally increases the risk of fire. What’s worse is that these ducts can burn and therefore spread the fire which occurs inside them.
