One or more uncomfortable rooms could mean that duct replacement is necessary.
Most people are aware that their HVAC system won’t last forever, but many don’t realize that it isn’t just the air conditioner and furnace components that can wear out. At Evergreen Heating & Air LLC, we dive deep to find out exactly what condition the entire system is in so that we can best advise you about how to have a more energy efficient Mooresville, North Carolina home. Sometimes our examination shows that partial or complete duct replacement is needed rather than the units themselves. The air conditioner or furnace may be doing their job perfectly, but the cooled or heated air isn’t able to make it where it needs to go because of a breakdown in the ductwork.
Sometimes the ductwork just has some minor damage and leaks to be resolved so duct replacement needs only to resolve specific areas. In other situations, the ductwork has gotten so old that it simply can’t do the job anymore and full duct replacement is needed. Many situations fall somewhere in between where more than a little ductwork needs to be replaced, but not all of it. You can rest assured that we will accurately assess the situation and provide an honest recommendation about the amount of duct replacement that is needed.
Ductwork can be damaged inadvertently while accessing other items in the attic space or it can be damaged by wildlife that has found its way into your attic. This is why even newer homes should have the ductwork inspected every so often. If you notice that one or more rooms aren’t as comfortable as you would like, it could be the ductwork to blame. Call us today to schedule an inspection of your home’s ductwork and to get an estimate if duct replacement is needed.
