If you've had the same ductwork in your household for decades, it may be time for a replacement. Just make sure you let a skilled AC contractor handle the replacement so that you can enjoy a couple of the benefits below.
Figure Out Which Sections Should be Replaced
Just because your duct system is old, doesn't mean you have to replace everything. There could be sections that are perfectly fine and should thus be kept where they are. When you hire an AC contractor, they'll perform a detailed assessment to check on the status of each duct section.
They'll look at the exterior of each duct section, as well as the interior with micro-cameras. A list will then be made of all sections of ductwork in your home that should be replaced. These assessments not only help you better plan the scale of said replacement, but they also give you a better idea of the costs involved.
Easily Remove Sections That Are Being Replaced
Once you figure out which AC duct sections to replace, now you're ready to remove them. Although you might think you can do this yourself, it actually can be quite difficult. Maybe your ducts are in a difficult area to reach or are secured firmly in place. An AC contractor is thus a good professional to hire for ductwork removal.
They'll methodically take down sections that must be replaced, ensuring they don't damage your property in the process. Sections taken down will then be removed from your property to set the stage for a clean and efficient duct replacement.
Carefully Test Out Performance After Installation
After new ducts are set up in your home, it's important to make sure they work like they're supposed to. An AC contractor will gladly perform tests at the end of their installation, fortunately, so that there's no question about how well the new duct sections work when your AC unit runs.
The contractor will make sure airflow is optimal and that your AC unit works as efficiently as it's supposed to. If not, the contractor can make a note of what's wrong and make adjustments until performance is where it should be.
If you have an older duct system that needs to be replaced in order for your AC unit to work great again, hire a pro for the replacement. You'll enjoy a simple and safe process the entire time because of the expertise an AC contractor has.
