So Your Ductwork isn't Functioning. Don’t Panic — We’ve Got Ya.

It’s important to view your home as a living system. Like humans and animals, homes are made up of a variety of moving parts, all of which influence each other to some degree. Imagine the ductwork in your home served as its lungs, moving treated air throughout the environment and resulting in a comfortable living space for you and your family. So...what if the lungs of your home stop functioning?

At California Energy services, we know that a home is a complex unit to comprehend, and finding the source of problems is easier said than done. As a homeowner, however, you owe it to yourself to know if something isn’t working properly, especially considering that a problem could potentially have negative impacts on the health of you and your family. If your ducts aren’t functioning properly, you may also be losing precious energy, which also equates to lost money.

Symptoms of a Poorly-Functioning Duct System

For Greater Sacramento homeowners, it is helpful to know what to look for if you think your duct system may not be working properly. The first symptom to keep an eye on? Allergies. A stuffy nose or sore throat could come from a number of different factors, but poor indoor air quality is often the culprit here and can result from having a poor duct system. Another thing to look for is a lack of airflow, as this can also signify a duct system that isn’t working properly. Both of these issues can affect comfort in the home and should be remedied whenever possible.

  • Duct Sealing — For homeowners looking for a permanent solution, duct sealing is an excellent option. We’ll clean the ductwork if necessary and seal any cracks to prevent toxic air from entering the home.  This will decrease drafts and allow your HVAC system to run more efficiently. Duct sealing means less moisture and mold, which means cleaner air and no need for annual maintenance.
