Ignoring Your Ductwork Could Be Your Biggest Problem

ductwork los angeles caWhen it comes to home heating and cooling, few people give their ductwork much thought. It's out of sight, out of mind and whoever heard of any serious problems starting in the ducts anyway, right? While the ducts may not be responsible for serious issues like electrical failure or potential fire hazards, they perform an essential function and should not be ignored.

It's common for Los Angeles homeowners to be preoccupied with other aspects of their home, especially when it comes to home improvement. It is much easier, and more personally rewarding, to focus on tasks like kitchen remodeling or new interior paint. However, what you don't know about your ductwork in Los Angeles, could end up hurting your home.

Common Problems With Ductwork in Los Angeles

The ductwork is something almost every homeowner takes for granted even though they do one of the most important jobs, as part of your heating and cooling system.

Leaks in ductwork are a big deal, partly because it is not something that you can see or even hear. Water leaks are visible in plumbing. Even if the leak is in the wall or underground, you can hear running water and have an indication something is wrong. Leaks in ducts don't usually make themselves known, aside from elevated energy bills.

If your duct system was improperly designed or installed in the first place, you are going to end up with ongoing problems. According to studies, the average duct system is only approximately 50-60% efficient. This is due to fault layout plans and / or installation. This includes using the wrong size equipment.

Insulation is vital for keeping your home temperature controlled and more energy efficient. This includes making sure that your ducts are insulated, or the damaging results are similar to the air loss with a duct leak.

Believe it or not, even dirty air ducts cause problems but not with your energy efficiency. Dirty ducts lead to poor indoor air quality. The longer your neglect to have them cleaned, the longer your air recirculates through that same filthy duct system.

Fabulous! John’s estimate was great, detailed, and the work went smoothly. John really looked at our house thoroughly before giving us the estimate and doing the work, so there were no “surprises”.

We had gotten many estimates from the likes of home Sears, Lowes, and quite a few others. Then a friend of ours recommended Home Comfort. Home Comfort was priced about in the middle but came highly recommended so we decided to go with them. The installation went exactly as planned. We had the heater/AC and duct work installed in the attic and it was done in the estimated time and with the utmost care and cleanliness (and it was during one of our heat waves). John was awesome, a professional and a total pleasure to deal with. He had great ideas for efficiency and esthetic appeal. John was also very honest, selling us only what was most efficient and needed for the size of our home. We would definitely hire John and Home Comfort again and would absolutely recommend there services. I would give John and Company a 5 star rating!

We first reached out to John at Home Comfort in 2013 and had to wait on a new HVAC install, but when we were finally ready to pull the trigger this spring, he was ready and eager to go. He was responsive, his turnaround was great, and our system + Nest work like a charm. Highly recommend for quality, accountability, and price (based on other estimates from companies that took a week or more to respond to questions); and last but not least, friendliness.
