Does My Ductwork Need Repairs?

Monday, July 23rd, 2018

ductsWindow unit air conditioners are still commonly used, but they really are not ideal for cooling an entire home. They are noisy, they leave your home unsecured, and you have to lug them around the house, install them for the summer, and take them out when the cooling season is over. They’re handy for single dorm rooms and studio apartments, but a central AC is much, much better for whole-house cooling needs. Unless the ductwork is in bad shape, that is.

Leaky or otherwise damaged air ducts can lead to a whole lot of problems for homeowners. Unfortunately, determining if your air ducts are damaged can be a problem in and of itself. After all, the ducts servicing your home are not really all that visible. It’s not as if you want to be looking at them all of the time, right? Of course not. That is why you need to work with trained professionals to pinpoint the source of any leaks and to resolve them completely. We’re the HVAC company in Fairfield, CT to repair your ducts.

Signs You Need Duct Repair in Shelton

Wednesday, August 27th, 2014

Your ductwork is an integral part of your air conditioning system, but it is also the most overlooked because it isn’t visible. Faulty ductwork can be highly inefficient, which is why it’s important for your ductwork to be in good shape. Duct repair in Shelton, CT can help keep your ductwork healthy and efficient, but to truly reap the benefits of ductwork repair, it should always be handled by a professional.

Is It Time for Duct Repair?

There are some common signs it may be time for duct repair in your home:

  • Consistent whistling noises – do you hear whistling noises coming through the vents every time your AC delivers air? This can indicate leaks in the ductwork through which air is seeping.
  • Uneven cooling – are there hot and cold areas in your home? Are there rooms that seem to receive less air than others? When certain ducts have cracks, holes and disconnections, the air flow is interrupted and can create uneven cooling in your home.
  • Unpleasant odors – musty smells coming from your ductwork can indicate the presence of mold and/or mildew growth in the ducts. Mold and mildew aren’t just stinky, they can be very unhealthy for the people in your home.
  • Excess humidity – have you noticed that the moisture level in your home has increased? Air from the outside can enter your air flow due to the cracks and holes in the vent work, and get delivered right into your living spaces.
  • High energy bills – air loss is one of the biggest problems with faulty ductwork. It is estimated that you can lose up to 30% of your air just from faulty ducts. This puts stress on your air conditioner as it has to make up for that loss, and does so by using more energy.

If you are seeing the signs of faulty ductwork in your home, it may be time to call Celco Heating and Air Conditioning for duct repair in Shelton, CT. Call us today and schedule an appointment.
