Duct Repair and Replacement Services in Chicago, IL

When they reach a certain level of wear and tear, they will need to be repaired or replaced.

Do You Need Duct Repair?
Ducts will start to develop issues long before they fail completely. Though they may look sturdy, the vast majority of ductwork is actually really prone to problems. The most common of these problems is duct leaks, which can from from mistakes made during installation, animal activity, or even years of expansion and contraction due to temperature changes.
For the most part, these leaks can be treated on a case–by–case basis, using measures like duct sealing or insulation. Eventually, however, the problem will progress beyond simple here–and–there leaks. The ductwork will eventually become so worn out that sections of it will start separating, creating massive gaps that contribute to large losses of output for climate control systems in the home. When that happens, you’re going to need more drastic measures.
When Duct Replacement Is Necessary
Duct repair and replacement usually involves installing new sections of ductwork, even if the rest of the system is completely fine. Sometimes, one section of the ducts has been subject to more wear and tear for whatever reason and must be replaced a bit early. This is often the case with the aforementioned gaps, where one part of the ducts literally can’t keep it together anymore.
Duct replacement can also include the entire system, if the ductwork is simply too old and worn out for piecemeal measures to be effective. This is obviously much more labor intensive, but the effect of having entirely new ductwork on the efficiency and comfort of your home is quite noticeable.

Though ducts may seem simple in terms of their construction, they should only ever be handled by professional contractors. The size, shape, and position of your ducts are all specific to your home, and are meant to facilitate the flow of air as efficiently as possible.

If you start messing around in the ducts on your own, though, you will run the risk of somehow disrupting the careful balance that allows them to operate properly.
