HVAC Ductwork in Savannah GA, Hilton Head SC, and Surrounding Areas
At Old Coast Heating & Air Conditioning, we approach our work from a whole-home energy improvement point of view. A hidden aspect of that approach is your ductwork.
We Offer a Range of Duct Work Services
The ductwork in your home is the heart of your HVAC system because it provides the path for conditioned air to reach your living spaces. If your ductwork leaks, is incorrectly installed or not the right size, you might be wasting more energy than you realize. To help you ensure your duct system is doing its job, we offer a range of duct work services:
- Installation and repair
- Cleaning and sealing
The Importance of Properly Installed Ductwork
Properly installed ductwork is efficient and maintains your comfort year-round. If the installation is shoddy, you could end up with several problems:
- Hot and cold spots
- Stressed-out HVAC equipment
- Poor air quality
Our technicians have extensive experience designing and installing duct systems. We take into account your HVAC equipment and load requirements to make sure our ductwork isn’t undersized. We guard against long runs and sharp bends, make sure there are enough return air vents and ensure your duct joints are sealed to prevent air leaks.
Professional Duct Leakage Testing
One of the reasons we stand out among other HVAC contractors in Savannah, Hilton Head and the surrounding area is because we offer added value to our customers. Duct leakage testing is one way we give you peace of mind that you’re doing all you can to maximize the comfort of you and your loved ones.
The Department of Energy estimates that leaks can account for up to a 30 percent energy loss as conditioned air travels through your ductwork. Testing for leaks works well for new and existing duct systems:
- Testing after duct replacement or a new installation assures you that we installed the duct system correctly and that your furnace or air conditioner will operate at peak performance.
- Testing reduces the guesswork of pinpointing air leaks and provides more accuracy when determining duct repair costs. It also helps identify whether you would benefit from duct sealing or whether you would be better off with duct replacement.
Expert Duct Replacement, Cleaning and Sealing in Savannah GA and Hilton Head SC
Over time, ductwork can become damaged, torn or crushed. Joints and seals become loose, holes develop, and expanded living space or new HVAC capabilities make existing ductwork obsolete. Bacteria or other growth might live in your ductwork; leaks might allow outdoor pollutants to be sucked into your home. Sometimes the solution to these problems is duct cleaning and sealing; other times, it’s duct replacement. Our service technicians are highly trained in all three and can help you decide which solution will maximize your comfort the most.
High-quality ductwork plays a critical role in the efficiency of your Savannah, Jekyll Island, Brunswick, Ellabell, Pembroke and Richmond Hill, GA, Hilton Head Island, SC and the surrounding area HVAC system.
