Air Ducts

air ducts

According to the U.S. Department of Energy’s Energy Star program, leaky ducts in attics or crawlspaces can account for 20 percent or more of a home's heating and cooling energy losses. This results in higher utility bills for you and difficulty keeping your house comfortable.

A few signs you may have leaky ducts are if you have:

  • High utility bills in summer and winter
  • Difficult-to-heat-and-cool rooms
  • Stuffy rooms that never seem to feel comfortable
  • Attic, crawlspace, or garage ducts
  • Tangled or kinked flexible ducts in your system

What Can You Do About Leaky Ducts?

Run your system, and check all the ducts and joints you can access. You can seal these yourself with mastic or foil-backed tape. You should also seal around where the duct meets the wall. Duct tape is actually not recommended for ductwork, and any fabric-backed tape will deteriorate over time. If you have questions about appropriate tape call us at 541-387-3311 or talk to a representative at your local hardware store.

The following maintenance will require an HVAC professional:

Air Duct Insulation

We recommend insulating your ducts. This ensures that the air maintains the correct temperature as it travels to the living spaces in your home.

Air Duct Testing

You can have your ducts tested. One of our certified technicians will take a reading of the air pressure in your ducts and can analyze how much air you lose. From there we can make suggestions about how to improve efficiency.

Indoor Air Quality

Indoor Air Quality, or IAQ, is very important to the health and well-being of you and your family.

“Rene and Cruz came out to clean the duct and Aeroseal and remove the old furnace. They were very professional, friendly and knowledgeable. They explained all that they were doing and went the extra mile and taped off gaps in the vents I didn’t know I had. I have the installation coming tomorrow and if Rene and Cruz, and of course Karin are an example of great service they have, then I made the right choice to go with A&E Heating. I am looking forward to tomorrow with the install.” – Jerome L.

“Always great service with A &E . Steve and Cruz the technicians who cleaned the air ducts demonstrated the equipment and answered all my questions. They were fast and efficient and took great care as they moved through the rooms and moved furniture to access the air vents.

“A&E’s professionalism sets the standard for other service companies. The scheduler, Manny, listened to a thorough description of my need, and set the appointment for within a week of my call. The day before the call A&E sent an email reminding me of the appointment. The morning of the appointment an email arrived saying that the techs were on their way to my house; included was a photograph of the tech and his name! That gave me much assurance. Once there, Skyler and Cruz were super professional. They were respectful of me and the house, they explained the upcoming procedure, and they worked well as a team. When they discovered a problem in the duct work that needed repair, A&E sent the parts immediately so that there was no delay and no second appointment. Skyler and Cruz were friendly and encouraging throughout, and were fastidious about cleanup. Followup by the home office after the service was also quick, professional, and respectful.”
