Air Duct Repair
Damaged or degraded air ducts negatively affect the energy consumed and the efficiency of an HVAC unit. Leaky seals or broken pipes prevent hot or cold air from distributing evenly across a property forcing the air duct system to work less efficiently to circulate air into the indoor environment. When this occurs, cold and heat spots may be felt in the home or business and, with more energy being consumed, monthly utility bills with spike. This may be a first indication of a problem. Other indicators that an air ducts system needs repairs are cracks, tears, or gaps in ventilation ducts; mold and other foreign substances seen around vents; poor air duct or pipe alignment; unusual indoor humidity; and older age ducts. The excess energy consumption of air ducts in need of repair is costly both monetarily and to the environment. If any of these problems are identified call our expert technicians so that these valuable repairs can be made to the air duct system.
Air Duct Restoration
In some instances, restoration may be a viable solution for your HVAC duct problems.

Older air ducts require a specific, comprehensive analysis from a trained and experienced professional. Our technicians at Quality Service 360 have the expertise and knowledge to appropriately recommend whether an air duct restoration is needed.

What is the difference between air duct repair and restoration?
Air duct restoration is involved in restoring and mending breaks and tears, applying sealant in and around your ducts and pipes, and improving the overall quality of an air duct system. Whereas, an air duct repair includes partial replacements of the air duct system, patching the ducts or re-adjusting loose components.
What is the process of air duct system restoration?
We start with the most essential element of a proper air duct restoration which is an expert assessment. This includes a detailed evaluation of your air duct system and discussion of restorative measures which should be taken. Removal of debris, grime, dust, mold, toxins, and pollutants from your supply, exhaust, and return ducts will be performed during the air duct restoration process. Then we will mend the breaks and damaged areas of an air duct system. These affected areas may include damaged connections or tears in metal pipes where leaks will be effectively sealed. The sealant products we use are eco-friendly and high quality ensuring that air ducts are sealed airtight.
What are some benefits of restoring my air ducts?
Air duct restoration improves the efficiency of HVAC systems which creates lower utility bills, reduces wear and tear on HVAC systems, improves indoor air quality, and raises property resale value. Cracked or leaky air duct pipes can add 20% or more to monthly utility bills. Having an air duct restoration helps to avoid potentially costly HVAC system repairs or replacement by creating an environment for the HVAC system to work more efficiently. Restoration will improve the indoor air quality so that toxins and irritants are no longer cycling through the ducts and out into immediate surroundings. Additionally, when selling your property, having restored air ducts added to a list of updates will positively impact resale value of a property.

Air Duct Replacement and New Installation
If air ducts are over 15 years old, replacement of current ducts may be needed. We thoroughly inspect the air ducts so that appropriate recommendations on needed work and pricing are given to our customers. Only a professional’s expertise should determine whether or not new air ducts are a viable solution. That is why it’s so important to choose a company such as Quality Service 360 that values high quality, honest, and reliable service. Overly damaged moldy ducts or pipes, water leaks from your air duct system, high utility bills or uneven air distribution are all signs that an air duct replacement is needed.
Installing new air ducts is important in delivering the highest air quality to various parts of a property. When a thermostat is adjusted for cold or heat, a certain amount of air should be received based on the rated capacity of the HVAC system. Often, we find that the full amount of air output capacity of the ducts is not met in spite of its ability. This usually means that the air ducts are too small, have a leak, are not fitted properly, or have been installed improperly by previous installers.
If an air duct system is leaky, faulty, or corroded, installing new ducts can instantly improve quality of life by alleviating high utility bills and environmental damage through energy retention, offsetting future energy costs, and improving health through improved indoor air quality. Our customers only deserve the highest quality of service and the professionals at Quality Service 360 are dedicated to delivering that much needed service.
