Most modern AC and heating systems require a set of ducts for air delivery. Air is conditioned at the indoor air handler, and a blower fan pushes this air into the ducts, which serve as a pathway to the different rooms in your home. But these ducts may potentially suffer from a number of different problems. Poor duct installation and care leads to problems such as uneven heating and cooling, poor energy efficiency, and broken HVAC equipment.
Only allow your new ductwork to be installed and serviced by a sheet metal ductwork specialist in Fairfield. Call Bartels Heating & Cooling for your ductwork installation, repair, and cleaning needs.
The Benefits of Sheet Metal
Sheet metal ductwork is the most common type of ductwork found in home. There are other options, however, including ductboard and flexible ducts. But sheet metal is proven to be effective, standing up to damages. Fiber ducts can be difficult to install, and the potential exists for fiberglass to move into your ducts. Sheet metal is tough and effective, plus it comes in many different shapes and sizes for ease of installation.
Why Choose Professionals
If you pick a professional for ductwork installation, you can feel assured that the ducts in your home are tightly sealed. When ducts are first installed in a new home, the job is not always completed by HVAC professionals. This is why so many homes suffer from leaky ducts—most homes, according to the Environmental Protection Agency. In fact, the EPA estimates that the typical home HVAC system loses about 20-30% of its heating and cooling power in the ducts.
HVAC professionals will make sure that the ducts are sized properly for your home and for your HVAC system. They will install the ducts in an efficient way, establishing the most direct route possible between the air handler and the vents in your home. After installation, they will test the ducts with an air pressure test and they may do a test run of your heating and AC system as well. Professionals have all the tools and expertise to ensure that all of the parts are just right.
