Air duct repairs
There are several potential “weak links” in your A/C system that require professional help. The first one is the ductwork. Your air ducts are one of the most important systems in your home, and if the ducts are poorly sealed or insulated they are likely contributing to higher energy bills. Ducts that leak heated or cooled air into unheated spaces can add hundreds of dollars a year to your heating and cooling bills (Energy.gov).
Unfortunately, you can’t see the ducts behind your walls and ceiling. That’s where we come in. The average duct system in Southern California homes leaks up to 30% of its air, and Service Genius is here to check your system and stop the leaks.
Return air is critical to the function of your system. There are two factors affecting your home’s return air that might require repair or adjustment:
- Improperly sized return air ducts will result in low airflow. Low airflow severely affects both the efficiency and lifespan of your system.
- Leaking return air ducts or grilles will suck in dust and dirt from your attic. This dust and dirt will make its way into your home where you and your family will breathe it.
Regular service visits will help our team spot and repair problems as they occur.
Are some rooms in your home too hot or cold? If so, your duct system may not be delivering the required heating or cooling to those rooms. Supply air is the part of your air conditioning and heating system that “blows” the air into your rooms. It is a network of plenums, ducts and wyes. A properly sized and functioning supply air system is critical to your system’s efficient and safe operation. Poorly designed duct systems will cause low airflow in your system and may decrease its life.
Leaks in the supply-side of your system will cause your home to develop a suction effect, which will pull hot or cold air in from your attic or outside and counter all the money you spend to run your HVAC system!
