The ducts in your home form a path so that the air conditioned by your HVAC system can travel into your home through an enclosed space. Your air conditioner will not stop running until your home reaches the proper temperature. But if there are holes and cracks in a duct, it will take a lot longer for your air conditioner to cool your home as desired.
It can be very difficult to detect whether your ductwork is in need of repair. Unless a duct has collapsed in a visible space, it will be very difficult to tell where—or whether—a duct is leaking without the proper professional services. When you call on the duct experts at Ultimate Air Conditioning, we’ll use special equipment to determine if the amount of leakage from your ducts in Lakewood Ranch is too high. After you schedule duct repair, you’ll notice that your air conditioner (and forced-air heater) runs far more efficiently than before.
If you have a collapsed duct or if there are minor cracks along the lining of the ducts, then you’re essentially paying to cool an unconditioned space. Your air conditioner must run for a very long time to cool down your home as the cool air cannot fill the room as quickly. You may also notice warm or cool spots around the home or even poor indoor air quality as your unit sucks in debris from the attic or crawlspace.
Most homeowners notice energy savings immediately after duct repair—but only if the service is performed by a professional. Amateur duct repair is difficult, to say the least. Furthermore, professionals have the tools to find even leaks that are well hidden, and to seal out-of-reach places. They also have the proper equipment for repair. We cannot stress this enough: standard home duct tape is not suitable for duct repair. While duct tape is ideal for many home improvement and crafting projects, it is not a good sealant and may even pose a fire hazard.
