Honolulu Duct Repair and Replacement
Your ductwork is just as important to the operation of your central air conditioning and heating system as any other component. A solid set of ductwork allows smooth airflow that reaches every corner in a home.
Some homes have some low level leaks out of these fixtures due either poor engineering, negligent installation or lack or proper maintenance and upkeep.
Leaky air ducts make you less comfortable and it costs you money. Running the AC when the ducts have holes or cracks in them is just not as efficient and it wears down your ac unit. Sealing ductwork becomes necessary when leakage levels are unacceptable.
Here are some common ductwork problems.
