If you have an older home, you’re probably realizing that the upkeep takes a bit more work (and money) than just cleaning out the eaves troughs or patching a roof. While older homes tend to have much more character than their newer counterparts, they can leave your pocketbook a bit emptier. No matter how old your home is, though, most people don’t consider their air ducts as part of their maintenance. This can be a big mistake, however, because they are an integral part of your home and if you don’t take care of them, you could be in for big trouble in the future. Luckily, there are air duct restoration methods that can save you money and get your ducts back in good working order quickly. This is a much better option than having to have them completely replaced.
The process starts with a video/visual inspection of your ducts. There are many different types of materials and systems that your home could be equipped with, including galvanized steel, sonotube or Transite. Most home in the U.S. are made of galvanized steel.
Once the technician has inspected your ducts, he will be able to identify what they are made of, and what type of problem you have; that is, if there is mold present, rust, or pest infestation. These underlying problems must be fixed before the restoration process can continue.
The technician will then be ready to apply the spray on restoration material to bring your air ducts back to their original condition. They will not only look like new, but they will operate like new as well. You’ll also be backed by a 15-year warranty for all work completed. You’ll also enjoy a more energy efficient home.
Air duct restoration can give your home healthier indoor air for you and your family.
