Duct Replacement

Homeowners tend to ask if they really do need new ducts when we replace their air conditioning and heating system. The answer, though, is almost always a resounding yes.

How is this supposed to work?

Old Duct

The duct system is largely responsible for what you actually feel when you heat and air condition your home. It doesn’t matter what size A/C unit you have (3ton, 4 ton, etc.) or how efficient your furnace is if that air doesn’t get into your home. You are paying good money to have hot or cold air added to your home so that you can be comfortable.

I would even go so far as to say that you want your home the most comfortable it can be at the lowest possible cost. And that combination is largely a result of quality design and installation of your ducts.

If you have flexible ducts and are over 10 to 15 years old, they will most likely need replacing. Older, flexible ducts often have poor insulation and may have asbestos as insulation material, and likely to have rips and tears. In addition, many contractors fail to properly seal the duct connections when they’re installed, which leads to the air you’re paying to create being dissipated to the attic, basement and walls. This is not what you want.

Sealed Ductwork

Ductwork must be well-sealed, insulated, and balanced to ensure your home's heating and cooling systems work as efficiently as possible. Most homes have leaky ductwork and insufficient air flow, which can result in an uncomfortable living environment — regardless of the thermostat setting.

A duct system that is properly sealed can make your home more comfortable, energy efficient, and deliver cleaner air.

Replacing or making improvements to your duct system can:

  • Improve Comfort
    Sealing and insulating ducts can help with common comfort problems, such as rooms that are too hot in the summer or too cold in the winter.
  • Enhance Indoor Air Quality
    Fumes from household and garden chemicals, insulation particles, and dust can enter your duct system, aggravating asthma and allergy problems. Sealing ducts can help improve indoor air quality by reducing the risk of pollutants entering ducts and circulating through your home.
  • Promote Safety
    With normal use, gas appliances such as water heaters, dryers and furnaces release combustion gases (such as carbon monoxide) through the venting systems. Leaky ductwork in heating and cooling systems may cause back-drafting, a situation wherein these gases are drawn back into the living space rather than being expelled outdoors. Sealing leaks can reduce this particular risk.
