Choosing the Right Ducts for your Heater

heating repairYou really shouldn’t take any chances with your heating system. I remember during the summer months in Arizona, before moving in here in Litchfield Park, it was a struggle to hire a trusted repairman for my cooling system. I found one before but they have moved in into another place near Phoenix and now I don’t know how to contact them since I need one for the heating system. I remember before, I was advice about my ductwork for my heater.

Have you considered the importance of your ductwork to your heater system? The ductwork is the one that connects the outlets to its heating unit, it is usually installed in the floor or ceiling. People may always forget or don’t even know about gas furnace or a heat pump because this part is usually out of sight, hidden through the walls, floors, or ceilings. If your ductwork have suffered from bad leaks, broken connections, poor construction it can affect your heater big time possible leading to replacement or hopefully will work on repair.

Most of the time, this ductwork affects the heater because it is not fit or didn’t get the correct size for it. Some installers will put your ducts and will accidentally or carelessly picked the wrong size..it may be too large or too small. So you have to be careful on checking on this with your repairman or else you and your heater will struggle.

One indicator that it is time to schedule heating repair is the sudden increase in the costs associated with heating your home. Unless the usage drastically changed or temperatures have taken a big droop or you have altered your home heating habits, heating costs should not fluctuate that much. A sudden spike in heating costs points towards a decline of efficiency, which in turn likely requires professional heating repair.

Here are some of the heating repairs that we often encounter because of poorly sized ductwork.

Remember that if your ducts are too large there will be a visible impact once you start using your heater. You may hear some noise from the airflow or hear some vibrating sound that is louder than the normal sound. The cause of this is airflow from the construction that is building up pressure inside the ductwork.

Not only with the pressure, it will also cause low airflow that will result to uneven heating inside your house since the air will not be able to reach all the vents in your home. Don’t settle of stop telling yourself that a problem is just minor and no need for repair. This is a not a simple wound in our body that will naturally heal. Rather, treat it as a disease that is just minor and will prevent it from getting worse. T Putting heating repair off until these more serious problems manifest themselves will only result in increased heating repair costs and we don’t like that, do we?

One more thing to consider is the design. Yes, design. Improper ductwork design can cause as much as a 60% loss in heating efficiency. This will not only harm your pocket and your family but will harm mostly your heater which will struggle to reach your target temperature and imagine how you and your family might suffer if your heating system will not work. This means more repairs to things such as motors, fan belts, and compressors that can also end up with a need for an early retirement for your heater and the expense of getting a new one.
