Frequently Asked Questions

How much heat can ductwork handle?

Normally, hot air ducts can tolerate temperatures up to nearly 300° C (550° F). However, depending on the design of the duct, this range can go as high as 400° C (750° F).

What is a Heat Pump, and How Does it Work?

A heat pump is a machine that heats a home or building. The device moves thermal energy from outside, utilizing what is known as a refrigeration cycle. Also, numerous heat pump variations function in the opposing direction, cooling the facility by extracting heat from the encompassed space and expelling it outdoors. 

How does an Air-Source Heat Pump Work?

An air source heat pump absorbs heat from the outer confines of a home or building. It then releases it within the building; this process uses the same refrigeration procedure (and similar equipment) as ACs, but it’s utilized in the opposing direction. 

How long is ductwork good for?

Generally speaking, ductwork lasts between 20 to 25 years. However, by 15 years, you will usually notice deterioration in your duct’s functionality and effectiveness. When this occurs, you should not wait or hesitate to replace it. 

What happens if the duct is oversized?

Oversized ductwork means your HVAC system must work harder to push air through your ducts. As a result, your duct’s efficiency will become compromised, making winters colder and summers hotter. Moreover, you’ll have a higher risk of damaging your AC unit and heating network.

How often does ductwork need to be cleaned?

It is recommended that you clean your air ducts at least once every 2 to 3 years. This process will help you avoid many upkeep and health issues. However, if you have pets and children, it would be prudent to have your home duct’s cleaned more frequently than the recommended average.

How much does it cost to seal ducts?

This depends on the size of your duct and the scope of the job. For example, air duct sealing will typically be between $1,500 to $2,000 for a smaller to medium-sized residence or office job. The larger the house and the more ductwork that must be done, the higher the final price point. More considerable homes or buildings may cost as much as $4,000 for a proper seal.
