Air Duct Cleaning & Repair in Hagerstown, MD
Your ductwork has a vital role in your home comfort system. Your air conditioning and heating ducts carry and distribute conditioned air (heated or cooled air, depending upon the season) to all the rooms in your home’s living area. Properly designed and sealed duct systems should keep your home comfortable, with excellent indoor air quality and plenty of fresh airflow throughout.
In fact, a clean, sealed and well designed duct system is so vital that even the best AC and heating systems in the world cannot perform up to their potential without it. As you can imagine, many home comfort problems in your home can be traced to poor duct design or duct damage. We solve your indoor air issues with expert duct cleaning & repair.
What Can Go Wrong with the Duct System?
Here are just some of the reasons why duct inspection, cleaning and repair are vital for your budget, your health, and your home comfort:
Airborne contaminants: Along the way and over time, ducts can accumulate airborne dust, carpet particles, insects, mold spores, bacteria, pet dander, pollen, other allergens and more. Some of this debris can re-circulate in your home’s air supply, leading to poor indoor air quality and physical symptoms, like headache fatigue and more. This recirculation can also led to more frequent house cleaning, since more airborne dust can settle on furniture, floors, etc. Solutions: duct cleaning and duct sealing.
Airduct leaks and energy waste: In addition, ducts may leak air, as sections become detached from one another or are damaged. This can lead to wasted energy, since the heated or cooled air doesn’t completely reach the home’s living area. This means your HVAC system works even harder, trying to heat up of cool down your home, leading to higher and higher energy bills. Up to a third of your home’s energy costs can be traced to this waste, if you have leaky ducts. Solutions: Duct repair and duct sealing.
Uneven heating/cooling: Duct problems lead to high utility bills and poor airflow in the home, with some rooms never being warmed or cooled as they should be. In some cases, ductwork was not installed correctly or poorly planned, and retrofitting may be needed to restore comfort to every area of the home. Solutions: Duct retrofitting, enlarging, extending or redesign.
Poor airflow: This leads to lingering odors, a “close, stuffy” feeling in the home, stale air and a generally unpleasant atmosphere in the home or some rooms in the home. Solutions: Duct cleaning, sealing and extending the duct system. Vents and grilles (for airflow in and out of the room) can be added to help better distribute air through the house.
Hazardous missing or blocked direct vents: Furnaces, boilers, water heaters and clothes dryers, powered by natural gas or propane, must be vented directly outdoors, not into an attic. This is for safety reasons, so that combustion gasses don’t build up in the home. Solutions: Add/install vent pipes or clean out vents.
