Duct Inspection & Maintenance Services

If you have forced-air heating, central air conditioning, or both, your house contains a system of ductwork that sends conditioned air (heated or cooled) throughout the home. They generally work through two types of duct systems:

Supply Ducts-- Designed to blow conditioned air to your various rooms
Return Ducts-- Sends air back to the furnace or air conditioning unit so this air can be heated or cooled.

Between both types of ducts, the air is cycled continually until your thermostat tells the furnace or AC that the right temperature has been achieved. If you're ductwork isn't up to par, this will cause your HVAC system to run longer, wasting energy and causing utility bills to rise.

Halco offers duct repair and sealing to fix any leaks or gaps that might be leading to the inefficiency of your ductwork system.

Healthy Ductwork Makes a Difference!

Making sure your ductwork is the proper size and installed properly is key to having an efficient heating and air conditioning system. We specialize in energy-saving improvements, including ductwork repair and HVAC service in NY.

Unfortunately, ductwork is commonly overlooked during home energy performance evaluations, despite the following:

  • Comfort: When air ducts leak, they let air you just paid to heat or cool out of your home. Instead, the air in your home leaks into your attic, basement, or crawlspace. And the air that does reach you, won't be as warm or cool as it was intended to be causing you to have a less comfortable home.
  • Energy Efficiency: If hot air from your attic or cold air from your basement is being allowed into your system, it will take more energy and money to cool or heat it so that it's the right temperature for your home.
  • Indoor Air Quality: If you have leaks in your return ducts, you may be sending "bad air" directly into your living space, where the system runs. You wouldn't want to breath air from your crawl space all day long, but if you have an uncontrolled leak, you may be doing just that. Leaky ducts may also create "pressure imbalances" that keep some rooms under positive pressure and others in a slight vacuum. If this happens, you may have unhealthy air (laden with dirt, dust, pollen, allergens, and other contaminants) sucked into your home. Our duct cleaning services can help get rid of unwanted pollutants in your ductwork.
  • Safety: Pressure imbalances caused by leaky ducts can lead to back-drafting in combustion appliances such as furnaces, wood stoves and gas ranges. When this happens, you risk exposure to carbon monoxide.

Don't waste money and sacrifice comfort thanks to leaky ducts

    Customer Testimonial

              Hi Todd. I think everything turned out great. The guys must have had the system running for a while because when I came home the house was nice and cool. No musty smells and everything in the basement was very tidy. I'm glad I chose Halco and very glad I had new ductwork installed. The guys told me the old duct work was lined with fiber glass and we have been breathing that in for over 20 years. Put the mice running through there and it was really foul. You would be surprised how many contractors DID NOT want to install new duct work. I already caught one mouse in a catch-and -release trap and let it go outside. Now they have no way to get back in. Almost forgot; thrilled with the masonry work. I'll mail in the questions you left for me and thanks again.. Halco rules! Thanks, Dan.

    Customer Testimonial

              This was a VERY difficult and dirty job. Eric arrived on time, prepared the work area quite well to minimize debris, dirt, etc. His attitude throughout the job was pleasant, positive and professional; this in spite of the fact he had NO help till afternoon. He could have given up on one or two parts of the job that looked impossible; but he was determined and found a way to get it done. Quality of the work was excellent as far as I could see. He took no "short cuts" and did it right .... actually rectifying an air-flow deficiency created by the original Halco installation. We would be very pleased to have Eric return on any future service calls. He is a good ambassador for Halco.
