Professional technicians at Yates Heating and Cooling are able to properly install and maintain ductwork that provides high indoor air quality and comfort. When inevitable issues arise, our teams will perform custom duct work repair jobs to restore top performance within the entire HVAC system.

The purpose of an HVAC system is to transport air through a building and keep it warm or cool. HVAC units draw in old air, adjust the temperature using fans, coolant chemicals, and other materials, and then redistribute the air through a space. Ductwork is a key component of this process, as these systems allow the air to flow back and forth.

Custom Ductwork HVAC Repair or Replacement

Yates Heating and Cooling teams are highly experienced in custom ductwork installation, replacements, repairs, and maintenance. We are trained to spot issues even before they arise, and we guide customers through the repair process. We help you determine if a full replacement is necessary or if a repair will suffice.

Here are ways to know when it is time to get started with custom ductwork repair and evaluations:

  • Older HVAC systems: Ductwork typically lasts between 10 to 20 years, so a system in that age range might need to be repaired or replaced.
  • Dusty homes: The ductwork is designed to filter clean air through a home or building. When the system needs to be replaced or repaired, the home will likely gather more dust and occupants might experience allergies or other health issues.
  • Inconsistent temperatures: The temperature in a space should match the number on a thermostat. When the two do not align, there is likely an issue within the HVAC system.
  • Higher energy bills: When the cost to cool or heat a home rises unexpectedly, the ductwork might not be transferring air effectively.
  • Pest or rodent infestation: Critters can enter a home or business through leaks or damages within the ductwork.

Yates Heating and Cooling teams will help homeowners and businesses know when faulty functions can be repaired or if a full overhaul of the system is necessary.

How Hard Is It to Replace Custom Ductwork?

People often try tackling ductwork repairs and replacements on their own. While this can be done, it tends to be a daunting task that takes significant time and often costs about the same amount as hiring a professional.

Ductwork repairs need tools like hand seamers, a reciprocating saw, straight bent snips, sheet metal screws, and many other carpentry and electrical materials. Appropriate knowledge of ductwork systems is essential to DIY repairs. This can be tough, as many homes and businesses use different types of systems, and the technology and tools change often. What worked 10 years ago will likely no longer be useful. It also takes time to track the full system, especially if doing it without a team.

Ducts are often installed into the walls of a home, behind sheet rock and installation. When this is the case, wall material removal and replacement becomes a big part of the job. Those diving into a DIY repair or replacement job will also need to buy their own systems supplies instead of leaving the shopping to the experts. Overall, the job isn’t always easy for amateurs. We heavily recommend working with a professional team to ensure the job is done efficiently, correctly, and at a reasonable cost.

Ductwork Repair Cost

The cost to repair ductwork in a home or business varies by many factors, including the necessary materials, type of duct system, building size, and amount of labor required. Yates Heating and Cooling team members will work with each client to develop custom quotes and solutions for their unique needs.

Ducted Air Conditioning Maintenance

Regularly monitoring HVAC systems is key to keeping the system functioning fully in order to maintain the comfort of a home or business. Faulty home heating systems can also lead to dangerous health and air quality issues like carbon monoxide poisoning, allergies, and build-up of mold or bacteria. Poor maintenance will also lead to inefficiencies in heating costs and, eventually, broken systems. Leaky ducts can even be hard on the environment since HVAC systems will require more energy and generate more pollution. Planning regular maintenance with a team like Yates Heating and Cooling can save you money in the long run, as will speedy repairs when problems arise.
