This is How Ductwork Should be Repaired

Ductwork is a key part of your heating and cooling system, carrying conditioned air from a centralized unit throughout the corners of your home. When a breach arises in the ductwork, it can severely crimp your HVAC system’s ability to function. Here in Park Ridge, IL, ductwork can be fixed by trained professionals, which is a good reason not to attempt to fix any of it yourself. This is how ductwork should be repaired.

In the first place, you can’t simply fix any breaches with duct tape or other over-the-counter components. It sounds like a natural fit until you consider the stressors the tape will be under. Ductwork must handle extremes in temperature – hot and cold alike – which break down duct tape very quickly. The same thing happens for other types of sealant. All of that assumes that the layman understands how to reach the damage portion of the ducts to begin with: a situation that usually requires professional training.

Contrast that with a visit from an expert. If repairing the breach is required, he or she can use materials specific to the kind of ductwork you have, meaning that it can stand up to the rigors of your HVAC system. Furthermore if replacement is necessary, an expert can pinpoint the exact type of component you need and size if properly. He or she can then install it with the confidence that comes with years of experience, leaving your ductwork in the same shape it was before the breach.
