Putting Comfort Where It Was Meant to Be
Houses were once built with only window AC units. Any ductwork was installed for forced heat. Imagine the dismay of owners with a new HVAC unit who couldn’t understand why they weren’t cool. They needed ductwork modifications because the ducts weren’t enough to carry both forced air conditioning and heat. Times have changed, and College Station, Brazos Valley, and the surrounding areas homeowners might not use window units like they use to. If you live in a brand new custom home, then that means the ductwork was designed and installed for you. Planning ducts around a tray ceiling, a cathedral ceiling, or perhaps ceiling beams is exceedingly difficult. It can be done, but the ductwork probably wasn’t properly designed; it might have been the only way it could fit. Here at Barker's Heating & Cooling, we are experts in modifying ductwork and have been since 1974.
What Does Duct Work Modification Involve?
Brazos Valley homeowners will call one of our fully trained and certified technicians to discover why they aren’t cool. If the homeowners don’t need a new geothermal system, brand name HVAC, or a solar HVAC unit, and the problem is in the ducts. Our technician will:
- Examine the ducts from beginning to end
- Check the air moving through the ducts to see if the ducts are the right size
- Connect disconnected ducts, repair what needs repairing, and straighten out tubing
- Seal everything
- Fabricate new ducts if needed
Duct Work Modification By The Numbers
Did you know 20 to 30 percent of air is lost while passing through ducts with holes, leaks, or disconnections? Barker's Heating & Cooling is there for Plantersville all the way to Somerville homeowners. Comfortable temperatures and lower power bills for you are why we work so hard.
