When you live in a climate such as ours, chances are high that you think about your air conditioner a good amount. Naturally, you want it to function effectively and efficiently. What most homeowners don’t think about, however, is the “V” part of HVAC—the ventilation system that connects your AC system to the outside, making the distribution of cooled air possible. This makes sense—after all, this ventilation system is mostly out of sight, hidden behind walls, beneath floors, or in your attic and crawlspace.
Unfortunately, this ventilation system can accumulate damage, particularly if it was installed by an amateur or if it’s decades old. And if your ductwork is affected by leaks, poor connections, or bad construction, then you may be experiencing issues that lead to poor HVAC efficiency and repair needs. One of the most common problems that leads to ductwork damage is a ventilation system that wasn’t properly sized for the home in which it’s installed. This is why it’s so important to hire a professional HVAC contractor in Los Alamos, NM for any of your AC and ductwork needs.
