When installing a new HVAC system, careful evaluation of existing air ducts is especially important. Jewell technicians will assess the ducts and work with you to decide whether they stay, go or get repaired.
How Duct Work Can Get Damaged
Often, small animals tear holes in the duct work or sections become disconnected. Floor and wall insulation dislodges and lands atop ducts, pushing them down and creating gaps.
In older homes and remodeling projects, twisty duct paths may have served the prior contractor’s convenience but not the homeowner’s best interests. Those extra feet and turns force both warm and cool air to travel greater distances, creating more opportunities for loss.
In many Middle Tennessee homes, the primary duct work is in an exposed or partially exposed crawl space easily infiltrated by animals and the elements. Even then, insulating ducts that are in good shape plus reinforcing the connections may be all you need.
