Your home's heating and cooling system is much like your body's circulatory system. Your A/C and heater act as a heart that pumps blood to its organs and tissues while your home's intricate framework of ductwork acts as the veins and arteries, carrying and circulating air flow throughout the entire home. When a person does not take care of their cardiovascular health, they are at risk of poor circulation, clogged arteries, and even heart attack. In your home, having too small of a return line, improperly sized supply lines, restricted ductwork and duct leakage can all overwork your HVAC unit, leading to early failure. However, just like your body, your home's heating and cooling system can heal if you take the proper steps to recovering. By correcting ductwork issues, you recapture the lost capacity of your heating and cooling system, dramatically impacting your home's comfort and energy efficiency.
Flex ductwork is common for Phoenix homes built in 1980 or later. This type of ductwork is super simple to install, however, this duct design is outdated and are often less efficient. Some flex ducts split and crumble over time and need to be replaced or spliced to remain at all functional.
Sheet Metal Ductwork
While sheet metal ductwork is better for airflow and durability than flex ductwork, homes built with sheet metal ductwork are plagued with undersized return lines and supply registers too close to the return.
It was so nice to find contractors who actually went that extra step for us. I have never had a more pleasant experience with any contractor than with David and your crew at Green ID.
