Air Duct Cleaning & Installation
Vancouver's Air Duct Experts
Your home or business’s overall HVAC system contains a series of metal, fiberglass, or plastic ducts or “passages” within the ceiling, floors, or walls. The ductwork is responsible for distributing air throughout the property. They pull air in through return ducts to your heating or cooling unit, which sends treated air back out to locations throughout your home or office. Ductwork is a vital part of your HVAC system, which can be easily overlooked since it is often not as visible as other components.
Aire Serv of Vancouver offers air duct cleaning, repairs, and replacement services to ensure your ducts function correctly and keep you healthy.
Air Duct Cleaning Experts
At Aire Serv of Vancouver, we provide cleaning and installation services for duct-based systems. If your home or business has a heating or AC system that utilizes ductwork, keeping these ducts dust-free and clear of debris is extremely important. Clean ducts keep your system running smoother and more efficiently and can help extend the HVAC unit’s lifespan. Scheduling a duct cleaning is especially important before a season of heavy air conditioner or heating usage, such as summer or winter.
Signs Your Ducts Need Cleaning:
- Layers of dust form on your vent cover.
- Fuzz begins to coat your return air register.
- Noticeably larger amounts of debris in air filters.
- Dust or debris building up in the AC coil housing.
- Small amounts of dust near the AC motor.
- The home system takes a long time to cool or heat a room.
Age is the factor most considered when analyzing system efficiency, but the cleanliness of your ductwork can have just as big of an impact on HVAC efficiency. A build-up of dust and debris makes your HVAC unit work harder to circulate air, resulting in serious wear and tear over time. If you notice your system slowing down over time, especially in conjunction with large amounts of dust on your unit’s air filters or duct registries, you may have clogged ductwork affecting your system.

Repairing Your Ductwork
Over time, ductwork material can develop cracks and leaks, especially around the joints, causing further loss of circulation efficiency. Scenarios like excess condensation, mold, clogged air filters, or pests can also lead to damage to the ductwork. Turning to the professionals at Aire Serv of Vancouver is the best way to identify and resolve ductwork problems. We use diagnostic tools to identify airflow leaks that usually indicate broken ducts. Once the problem areas are identified, we make duct repairs by sealing sections that have come loose. After repairing your ductwork, we run efficiency tests to ensure the entire system works efficiently.
Why Should You Schedule Duct Repairs?
Repairing your ductwork when it faces cracks or other problems can offer a variety of benefits, including:
Efficiency Improvements – Sealed ducts are better equipped to circulate air efficiently since no air is lost from the fractured duct material. Your HVAC unit will also not waste energy heating or cooling areas that are unneeded.
Better Indoor Air Quality – Repaired ductwork is less likely to move contaminants through your air, contributing to better overall air quality for your home or business. Indoor air quality is improved even more when ductwork has been kept clean.
Increased Comfort – When leaks are present in your ducts, escaping air may lead to uneven heating or cooling as well as loss of temperature. Scheduling a repair will mean the air is distributed evenly, exactly where you need it.
Heating and Cooling Savings – Better efficiency for your HVAC system, as well as more streamlined air distribution, means you won’t be spending high amounts on rising utility bills to get the same level of comfort.
Leaks and cracks are sometimes only the beginning of the problems with your ductwork. In some cases, full air duct replacement is the better choice over a series of repairs. Our experts will inspect your entire ductwork system and help you decide what is best for your home or business. We will also recommend changes to the material if needed. Likewise, replacing ductwork is an excellent opportunity to reconfigure your ductwork if it was installed in a less-than-ideal layout. Whether age, excessive use, or poor insulation is to blame for broken ducts lacking efficiency, new ducts will bring improved comfort, better indoor air quality, and greater efficiency.
