Ductwork is a hidden element that is crucial to your home comfort. Ductwork is the system by which warm or cool air circulates throughout your home. It is essential to have well maintained and cared for ductwork in your Tigard, Oregon home.

Most of it is hidden behind walls or in places that are not as frequently used as other areas of your home. Often it is in the attic, and for most of us ductwork can fall into the “out of sight, out of mind” category. This can cost you money, compromise your indoor comfort and even effect your health.

Why do I need to maintain my ductwork?

The team at Climate Control consistently sees these problems in homes with leaky ducts:

  • Increased heating and cooling bills.
  • Spotty and overall uncomfortable air ventilation.
  • In some cases, negative health effects.

Leaks in your ducts can occur where the ducts are joined together. Leaked air is wasted air. Your furnace or air conditioner has used energy, that you pay for, to heat or cool the air. When that air doesn’t make it to the desired locations in your home, your HVAC unit has to work twice as hard to make up for the temperature lost, it is essentially like throwing money away.

Leaky ducts, leak money.

Leaks can also cause undesired things from the air to leak INTO your duct system. This means contaminants like exhaust, fumes, carbon monoxide or many other pollutants, can enter your duct system and circulate around your home without you knowing it. This can cause a myriad of problems including causing respiratory problems or exacerbating problems that you may already have, such as asthma or allergies.

To diagnose and correct your leaky duct problem is a simple process that will greatly improve the comfort and health of your home. Climate Control technicians are experts at correcting leaky duct systems. If you need your ductwork restored, call us today at 503-453-4822 or request service online.
