Homeowners know to get their heating system, and AC maintained and repaired, but how many of them remember the ductwork? Of course, a good HVAC maintenance plan may include a quick inspection of the air ducts, but this sometimes won’t cut it. Two problems can arise with ductwork: clogs and leaks. Then, after 10 to 15 years, the ducts may become so inefficient that they need replacing. There’s a company that can provide ductwork services to address any of these problems, and it’s Alaskan Air Conditioning and Heating. Here’s a breakdown of those services.
Air Duct Cleaning
You get a lot of different opinions as to how often the air ducts should be cleaned; the National Air Duct Cleaners Association, for example, say every three to five years. But everyone agrees that it should be done. According to the EPA, your indoor air can carry two to five times more pollutants than the outdoor air. As that air circulates with AC and furnace use, it will bypass the filters and collect in the ducts, causing:
- A reduction in airflow
- Inefficient heating and cooling
- The HVAC system to wear out sooner
- Asthma and allergy symptoms worsen
You may think that this is one of those ductwork services you can do on your own. You could, but the chances are that you’ll cause the dust, dirt, and other particles to seep back into your home. With their special brushes and vacuums, have our professionals take care of this.
Air Duct Sealing
Every year, homeowners lose an average of 25% of energy through air ducts, all on leaks. Our company can minimize this loss by applying a highly trusted and highly effective sealant called Aeroseal® to the ridges and gaps from inside the ducts. Don’t worry; our ductwork services are environmentally friendly, and Aeroseal® technology, in particular, has the EPA’s approval. The product even comes with a 10-year manufacturer’s warranty.
Air Duct Installation
Air ducts can deteriorate to the point that you need new ones. If that’s the case with you, or rather, if one of our keen-eyed technicians sees that it’s the case, have us over for this most challenging of ductwork services. We also install new air ducts for those who have built a room addition and need heating and cooling extended to it. Our company has certification from the Building Performance Institute, so we’re qualified.
