The ductwork is the transportation system for your heating and cooling installation, distributing conditioned air throughout your home. Comfort Time designs our installations to meet specific needs of you as well as protect against potential problems that could arise with this vital component in any structure’s make-up; we securely hang or strap each piece so it can perform at full capacity without worry about breaking down midstream!

Why Ductwork is Important?

Ductwork is an important component in your heating and cooling system. It transfers air from unit to vents, providing you with the perfect amount of cool relief or heat when needed.

Common Duct Problems?

Air leakage

Ducts must be properly sealed at the grills and registers to reduce air leakages. Aside from causing massive energy losses, these leaky ducts also pose another major problems; they can let in harmful gases into your home’s HVAC system which will cause uneven room temperatures as well as stuffy or hot environments with unusually high utility bills!

Dirty air ducts

With a HVAC system, filters in the air ducts help to keep your home clean and healthy by filtering out impurities. If you have gaps or holes between ceiling tiles where rainwater can leak into them while it’s raining outside then this is an indication that there might be same kind of problem with how well-sealed these sections are as far as moisture goes – which would explain why we’re seeing dead insects & cobwebs among other things inside our homes!

Restricted air flow

The efficiency of your HVAC system can be drastically reduced when air does not flow efficiently through the ducts. This will cause increased energy bills, frequent breakdowns and shorter lifespan for you’re appliances! Twisted/torn ducts often restrict airflow which makes them harder on both yourself as well as those who live in homes with this problem.


Insulation of air ducts can have a large impact on how much energy is lost during heating and cooling processes. In summer, when it’s hot in your home but cool outside – you may notice some whooshing sounds coming from inside the house as warm breath escapes through tiny gaps between doorways or around window frames; this occurs because there isn’t enough insulation to stop all that heat flow out into open spaces.

Poor Design

There are many different types of HVAC systems, but not all spaces require a high-capacity system. The right size depends on your needs and how big the room you’re trying to cool or heat is! A bad design could lead toward major inefficiencies with energy consumption so make sure that any new installation was designed by professionals who know what they’re doing before it gets installed into an already working environment!

The Benefits of a Duct System

Cost savings

Heating and cooling equipment runs at optimal performance while reducing the cost of energy in your home.

Increased comfort

Increased airflow and even temperatures throughout your home.

Improved health

The enhanced air quality will make it easier for those suffering from allergies or asthma.

Prolonged lifespan of HVAC equipment

Healthy ducts are important to the health of your home. They prevent dirt and other particles from circulating in them, which would cause unnecessary wear on system components due to dust or other particulates that get stuck during cleaning sessions.

R-6 Value

Duct insulation must conform to requirements for R-value. The R-value of insulation is a rating of effectiveness. It indicates how well the insulation resists the flow of heat from a warm area to a cooler area. The R-value will indicate how well the insulation will keep heat out of your home or commercial facility in the summer and inside during the winter.


R-value of R-6 is required for exterior ductwork or ducts installed in a ventilated attic or an unvented attic above a vented ceiling.
