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.
