When Should I Replace My Ductwork?

There are a number of different problems that you may encounter with your ductwork. In fact, leaking ductwork is one of the most common causes of inefficiency in homes throughout the country. In many cases, professional duct sealing can resolve the issue at hand. In others, though, sealing and repair is just not the best course of action. It may not even be possible. In such instances, you can count on our technicians to complete your duct replacement in Washington, D.C. with the quality service that the job demands. 

  • Extensive damage is one of the most obvious cases in which partial or full duct replacement may be necessary. Chances are, for instance, that if a large section of your ductwork is corroded, sealing those ducts is not really worth considering. In some instances, ductwork can be damaged manually, as a result of renovation work completed with too little care. Whatever the case, we can assess the condition of your air ducts, and we will only recommend duct replacement when the service is really necessary.
  • Improper installation or sizing of ductwork is another reason you may need a duct replacement. Not all air ducts are the same, and not every home is going to require the same size of air duct to service it. If your ductwork  is not matched properly to the HVAC system, and if the duct system is not well-designed, there is just no way in which you can hope to heat and cool your home successfully.
  • Basic deterioration is another reason to replace your air ducts. You don’t have to suffer cataclysmic damage to your ducts to justify their replacement. If you have been in your home for over 15 years, and have been using the same air ducts the whole time, replacement may help to prevent problems with air quality and inefficiency from developing.

If you suspect that you could use a duct replacement, give Polar Bear Air Conditioning & Heating Inc. a call.
