AC Duct Cleaning/Replacement in Pomona Valley
Duct work is isolated tubing, that is supposed to be flexible enough to fit anywhere and rigid enough to sustain its shape for years. Some spaces in the buildings are originally easier to access than others, that’s why some ductwork sections are easier to install, repair or replace than others. We would not recommend dealing with ductwork on your own because of all the hooks, clamps, elbows, crimping and other details involved. Also if some structural changes are to be performed in your building, the duct work will need to be rerouted or replaced completely. In this case DIY project would not be an option.
When your AC or heating system starts working, it is the ducts that are responsible for delivering that conditioned or heated air into your home. However, if your ducts have leaks, cracks, clogs or pinches, your home’s efficiency and comfort will suffer. Broken, dirty, or poorly-installed ducts significantly impact the quality of your indoor air, as well as the heating and cooling costs. It would be a smart move to choose an experienced team when your duct work needs to be replaced or improved.

Common Ductwork Problems
The most common duct problem is leaking. During the repairs some technicians might overlook the ductwork, so years will pass by and you won’t even suspect that your ducts have developed hidden leaks. So why would your ducts leak in the first place? Some of the most common ducting problems are listed below.
When ductwork is not installed by a professional technician, it could cause duct problems later. A “handyman” won’t have the necessary tools or know how to accurately seal the air ducts. Major gaps at the joints throughout the ductwork will be a reason why the ducts would leak air.
If the ductwork is poorly designed, it will neither improve airflow throughout the building, nor will it ensure the system efficient operation. That’s why it is important to initially install high-quality duct work at your home or business.
Leaks in your ducts don’t just cause air to seep – they also draw air in along with dirt, dust, and other air contaminants. As a result your home’s indoor air quality suffers and your heating or AC filter clogs faster, adding extra strain to your HVAC system.
If you have recently noticed that your heating or AC system does not operate as it used to, the problem could have to do with the system itself, or it may mean that the ducts are to blame. It would be best to call in an expert technician to determine whether your ducts have developed leaks.
The problematic ducts will have to be replaced to restore proper airflow in your HVAC systems. So if you ever encounter issues with the duct work and would require duct replacement, do not hesitate and call Pomona Valley Plumbing Heating & Air Conditioning specialists to accurately deal with your duct problem.
