What is Ductwork?
Ductwork is alike a straw; it transports air from one point to another (for example, from the AC blower to the inside of your home). Ductwork is usually made of pre-insulated fiberglass hard duct board or malleable plastic, but could also be made of metal sheet ductwork (a pipe made out of sheet metal) that is insulated once it is already installed.

Common ductwork problems
- Aging ductwork may possibly begin to fall apart. Depending on the type of ductwork in your home, over time generally 10 or more years, the outer liner starts or begin to break down and the insulation falls off. If this occurs in an over 100-degree attic, the air temperature could be 10-15 degrees hotter by the time it enters the home, causing an increased home cooling cost of 40-60%. To solve this issue, all broken and damaged ductwork must be replaced.
- Air duct leaks, which take place when old duct sealant begin to break down or if the installing contractor did not properly seal the ductwork.
- Rodents, such as rats and squirrels, will as well damage ductwork in the hunt for a cool nest in the Texas heat. You might want to check your attic if you’ve had a previous rodent problem.
Some of the main causes of duct problems
Ducted heating and cooling systems are installed in such a way that they are hidden and are out of our sight, so when they require repairs, we hardly notice up until the air conditioning is very poor.
A lot of ducted heating systems and air conditioning have problems and generate issues over the years. Most of these problems are produced by rats, possums, cats, and other beings. They chew their way into the ductwork in search of a secure and cozy home, leaving the AC ducts damaged. You can’t see them, but then you can hear or smell them.
The damage left behind by possums is widespread and extensive, and usually, all AC ducts will require replacement. Allen Air Conditioning Repair & Heating Solutions LLC duct fixer team specializes in finding these problems and give them solutions to fix them.
Other animals like cats, dogs, and as well wombats settle on the ducts to keep themselves warm, leaving the AC ducts destroyed and restricting the amount of airflow.
Some ductwork is damaged because of floods. When the water gets within your AC ducts, it stays for a lengthy period of time causing the ducts to shrink and get damaged. At times people go into the ductwork, crush and damage them. Other times due to poor installation or because of the air conditioning vents being far away from the heating unit there is less airflow in some parts of the house.
Allen Air Conditioning Repair & Heating Solutions LLC will complete an in-depth inspection of the ductwork in your home, to determine the level of repairs needed. Ductwork inspection is 90% visual on the other hand, in some circumstances, an infrared camera is used to fully inspect difficult to see areas of ductwork.
Allen Air Conditioning Repair & Heating Solutions LLC will as well complete an air balance check. The majority of customer calls we receive are because a certain area of the home is either too cool or warm, which suggests a need to properly balance the airflow all over your home. This is achieved by setting up dampers, making adjustments, and using advanced equipment (such as a bolometer or airflow meter) to measure airflow velocity in the affected area.
