Duct Cleaning, Repair, Sealing & Replacement

Even though your HVAC system air ducts are hidden away from sight, they play a vital role in the comfort and the safety of your home. Because of how vital they are to the airflow in your Lowcountry or Coastal Empire home and HVAC system performance, it’s important that your ductwork is clean and functioning properly.

Ductwork FAQs

What are the common signs that your ductwork needs repair?

Common signs indicating ductwork issues include inconsistent heating or cooling, uneven room temperatures, increased energy bills, excessive dust buildup around vents, musty odors from vents, and whistling or rattling noises during system operation. Visible signs like visible tears, holes, or disconnected sections also signal problems. Additionally, if your HVAC system runs constantly without adequately heating or cooling your home, it may indicate ductwork issues. Prompt inspection and repair of these signs ensure optimal HVAC performance and energy efficiency.

How much does ductwork repair cost?

Minor repairs, such as sealing leaks, may range from $100 to $400, while extensive repairs or replacements can cost $1,000 to $5,000 or more. Factors like duct accessibility and materials impact pricing. Additionally, addressing underlying issues like insulation or air quality may incur extra expenses. Consulting HVAC professionals for assessments and quotes ensures accurate estimates tailored to your ductwork repair needs.

How many types of ductwork are there?

Several types of ductwork are available for HVAC systems, including:

  1. Sheet Metal Ducts: Made of galvanized steel, durable and common in residential and commercial buildings.
  2. Flexible Ducts: Constructed from plastic or metal wire coil, offering versatility and ease of installation.
  3. Fiberglass Duct Board: Insulated ductwork composed of fiberglass insulation sandwiched between layers of sheet material.
  4. PVC Ducts: Made from polyvinyl chloride, resistant to corrosion and often used in industrial settings.
Can ductwork be relocated or modified to improve airflow?

Yes, ductwork can be relocated or modified to improve airflow in HVAC systems. This process involves assessing the existing duct layout, identifying areas of poor airflow or restriction, and redesigning the ductwork to optimize airflow distribution. Techniques such as resizing ducts, adding or relocating vents, and adjusting duct angles can help improve airflow and balance temperature distribution throughout the space. Professional HVAC technicians can evaluate the system and recommend appropriate modifications to enhance airflow and overall system performance.

HVAC System Ductwork Issues You May Experience

Because your ducts are not readily visible, you may not even know that you have a problem. However, if you notice uneven heating and cooling or a rise in your utility bill, it could mean you have air duct problems such as:

  • Damaged or Broken Ducts: If your ducts are damaged or broken, they can leak air and use more energy to compensate, raising your utility bills.
  • Dirty Ducts: If there is dirt or mold inside of your ducts, it can be spread throughout your house, which can be hazardous to your health.
