How’s Your Ductwork Doing?

Monday, August 22nd, 2022

Ductwork is an extremely important part of HVAC systems. While they’re never in the spotlight, that’s reserved for your air conditioning or heating unit, they probably deserve more attention than they usually get. You see, in order for your conditioned or heated air to reach you, it has to travel through your ductwork and ventilation system. If there are any problems with that, then your energy-efficient air conditioner isn’t going to seem so efficient as it leaks conditioned air into the basement or crawlspace of your home.

Think of this blog post as a bit of a PSA for your ductwork. If you’ve forgotten about your air ducts until now, that’s totally fine (let’s face it, it’s been a crazy year) but we’d argue that now is the time to shine the spotlight on them. Our team can provide custom services for ductwork in Fort Wayne, IN, from sealing to repairs. Just get in touch with us!
