Why Duct Repair Requires Professionals

You probably don’t give much thought to the ductwork in your home because it remains hidden from your sight behind walls, in ceilings, and disguised in little-used rooms. This makes it easy to forget how important the ducts are for your comfort and the efficiency of your home’s heating and air conditioning. If the ducts sustain damage leading to air leaks, the drop in pressure inside the HVAC system will lead to poor airflow, hot and cold spots through the rooms, and a drastic spike in heating and cooling costs.

When you notice signs that the integrity of the ventilation system is compromised, you must rely professional duct repair to fix the problem. Give Certified Air Systems, Inc. a call, and our specialists will get on the job of handling the duct repair in Casselberry, FL that will restore your ventilation system to ideal condition.

The reason professionals are necessary for this job

Duct repair is not a do-it-yourself job. You can’t use duct tape to seal up leaks, and that’s not just because duct tape isn’t actually useful for this job. (It’s a long story, but basically the name duct tape is a misnomer.) You also aren’t able to access your ducts easily without creating other damage, and it’s difficult to locate leaks in the first place. You may have multiple leaks in your ducts, of which only one or two are visually obvious.

Duct repair professionals bring advanced technology and specialized equipment to the job. They use special gauges to locate where air is escaping from the ducts so they can pinpoint all the places where the ductwork requires repairs. To seal up breaks, gaps, and holes, they use mastic sealant or metallic tape (the “true” duct tape) that will make sure the air leaks stay sealed and won’t create additional airflow resistance. If the ducts have sustained serious damage, duct repair specialists can take care of the more difficult task of replacing entire sections of the ductwork.

You simply do not want to take chances of creating an inefficient ductwork system through amateur repair attempts. Your entire HVAC system depends on ductwork that is in the best shape possible. Let the professionals handle the job from the start, and you should experience few issues with your home’s ducts in the future.
