The Importance of Ductwork Maintenance

The Importance of Ductwork MaintenanceYou’ve installed an energy-efficient heat pump, timed thermostat, and double pane windows, but your heating and cooling costs are still out of control.  Don’t forget the ductwork.  Just like the hoses in your truck, over time, the ductwork in your home can suffer the ravages of the long Texas summers.  Texas Air Tech can protect your money and one of your biggest investments: your home.

Worn and cracked joints, pipes, and seals all equate to one thing. Leaks.  Up to 30% of the air that moves through your duct system is lost to duct integrity issues. Your hard-earned money starts to pay to cool your attic instead of your family.  Your ductwork should be checked periodically to ensure you aren’t actually “cooling the whole neighborhood”.

Our team of highly trained professionals will ensure that your home’s heating and cooling system is operating at peak efficiency.

  • We’ll make sure your ductwork is well insulated.  Insulation keeps hot air hot and cold air cold as it moves through your home.
  • We’ll look at the “trouble areas” that stay hot in summer and cold in the winter.  This can be a sign of leaking joints, disconnected pipes, or cracks.
  • We’ll test the airflow through your system.  If the air can’t move sufficiently, it can’t maintain your house’s set temperature.
  • Lastly, we’ll check the pipes themselves. Technological advancement in the materials available for your ductwork can provide lighter, stronger, and more energy-efficient solutions.
