Duct Repair and Replacement in Tampa, FL
If you have a central air conditioner or heater, then you have stretches of ductwork made of sheet metal and plastic running behind your walls, along your attic, through crawlspaces. Your air ducts carry conditioned air form the heater and air conditioner, and circulate it into the rooms, then back through another set of ducts.
Because your ductwork is mostly hidden from sight, you likely won’t notice right away when something is wrong with it, or that you need to call in a professional HVAC Technician such as a member of the The A/C Guy of Tampa Bay Inc. staff to either repair or replace your air ducts. For superior service throughout Tampa, FL and the surrounding areas, contact our team—“We Serve Our Tampa Bay Family with Integrity and Honor, by Providing Expert Service That Surpasses Their Expectations!”
Are You In Need of Duct Repair?
As we mentioned above, it can be hard to detect when something is wrong with your air ducts. Fortunately, there are a few telltale signs that something is, in fact, amiss. These include:
- Higher than Average Heating and Cooling Bills: If you have breached ductwork, or your air ducts are starting to fall apart, they begin losing a large amount of air moving through them—potentially up to 30%. This translates into wasted money that you’re spending on conditioned air that never even reaches the rooms it’s intended for. If you see your energy bills rising with no other explanation, your ductwork could certainly be to blame.
- Loud Noises Coming from the Ducts: This may be a rattling sound, or even a banging noise. You might notice it more when the heather or air conditioner first turns on—this is because changes in the air temperature cause the ducts to flex and expand, and the loose sections will make a significant amount of noise.
- Low Air Flow from Your Vents: Losing air through damaged ductwork will cause your air pressure to plunge. As a result, you’ll notice sluggish airflow form the vents. If you notice hot or cold spots in your home in Tampa, FL, check your vents to see if low airflow is the culprit.
How to Test Ducts
Chances are, you don’t know how to test your ducts, and that’s okay. That’s what the professionals are here for. Duct fixes aren’t for the average DIY enthusiast or inexperienced handyman. It’s actually a pretty complex process that requires high–end equipment and specialized training on how to use it and analyze its data.
The duct testing process involves sealing off your ventilation system by closing off all room vents and registers. Then our trained technicians attach a special power vacuum onto the ventilation system that creates high air pressure within the ductwork. A device measure the pressure levels inside the air ducts to see how much it drops and how fast. From there, we can determine what type of service you need—duct repair or duct replacement.
