Duct Repair

Leaky Air Duct Repair

The efficiency of your air conditioning and heating system is dependent on the quality of your ductwork.  Over time, the integrity of your duct system can fail, causing leaks and condensation. Whether from age, accidental movement, or pest activity, these breaches are a waste of energy. 

If you've noticed a reduction of air flow, stains on the ceiling, or musty smell from air vents, you should have your central air conditioning systems’ ductwork checked.


Over time, the connections between the sections and segments of your duct system can fail. Whether from age, accidental movement, or pest activity, these breaches are a waste of energy. If your duct work has gaps or openings that let conditioned air escape, you may experience some rooms that are less comfortable than others. 


Another common duct work problem is restricted air-flow. If your ducts are collapsed or crushed, air flow is being restricted and prevented from getting the space you want heated or cooled.

All of these problems cause your heating or cooling system to work harder than it was designed, causing unnecessary power use and potential premature equipment failure.

What to look for?

  • Sudden Increase in Electric Bill
  • Rooms no longer getting cool
  • Air conditioner unit running more often
  • Reduced air flow
  • Stains on the ceiling
  • Musty smell from air vents

Acme’s staff of heating and cooling duct experts can make sure your duct system is working properly. If there’s a problem, we can advise you on your options for duct repair or duct replacement.

Cooling and Heating Efficiency

Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio (SEER)

Today's air conditioning and cooling systems are much more efficient than those of just a few years ago. Using new technology to run as economically as possible and use less energy. Often, the energy savings of replacing an old ac system will pay for the cost of the system in just a few years.

Below is a chart that shows the energy savings of air conditioning units based on SEER (Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio) ratings, a measure of the efficiency of air conditioners as defined by the Air Conditioning, Heating and Refrigeration Institute. 

The SEER rating of an air conditioning system is the cooling output measured in BTU (British thermal unit) during a typical cooling-season divided by the total electric energy input measured in watt-hours during the same period. A more-efficient system has a higher SEER rating, which translates into money savings.
