Ductwork Services in Butler County, PA
When it comes to a central AC, furnace, or heat pump, the system can only run as well as the ductwork allows it to. The ducts are responsible for distributing cooled and warmed air throughout your home. This air comes through an air register, or a vent, and will gradually change the temperature of your Butler County home.
Ductwork systems remain the most convenient and cost-effective method to heating and cooling distribution throughout your home. However, after a few years of use, ducts can begin to deteriorate. That’s when you’ll need to have your ducts tested and resealed. There’s no one better to trust for the job than Kennihan Plumbing & Heating, Inc. We’ve been helping families in the Northern Allegheny & Butler Counties since 1969, and we’re happy to do the same for you.

Duct Testing and Sealing Services
The biggest enemy to your HVAC efficiency is duct leakage. This might come as a surprise since you often hear so much about how a properly maintained heater or AC is the key to efficiency. While that claim is no less true, the ducts are equally important, but typically forgotten.
If your HVAC energy bills are gradually increasing, it might be time for duct testing. We’ll be able to test the pressure in the ducts and determine if you need any duct repair. If the leaks are minor, duct sealing is the most cost-effective solution. If the ducts are especially old, however, then it might be time for a complete duct replacement.
Duct Cleaning in Butler County and Northern Allegheny
Along with duct leaks, another forgotten aspect of the ducts is the fact that they need to be cleaned. The average home collects about 40 pounds of dust annually. Of course, the average homeowner wipes that dust from the shelves and tables regularly. The same can’t be said of the ducts, however.
The dust that finds its way into your ductwork is going to stay there. When enough dust has built up, the loose dirt can mix with your air circulation and start entering the home. If you’ve noticed a drop in air quality or a need for more frequent dusting, it might be time for Butler County duct cleaning services.
Good Ductwork Maintains Efficiency
Whether it’s sealing or cleaning, a ductwork system in good condition is going to result in a healthy energy bill.
Several leaks in a duct system can result in the loss of nearly 30% of the air that flows through it. That’s a lot of energy to waste, especially when you’re blasting your heater or AC in the middle of the season.
As for the dust and dirt inside the ducts, large enough quantities of it can actually interfere with your HVAC system. The dust will find its way into the sensitive components of your machine, and that can cause problems which shorten the lifespan of your system.
Call HVAC Professionals Only
While anyone can certainly try to clean or seal their ducts, we can guarantee that only a professional can get the job done thoroughly and properly. To ensure that all possible duct leaks have been sealed, you need the tools that only a professional HVAC contractor can provide. Likewise, a duster brush and vacuum aren’t enough to do your own duct cleaning—it might even make the problem worse.
