You can probably learn how to install ductwork by watching a tutorial video online. However, it’s a lot harder to install ductwork than the professionals in the video make it look. Let’s take a deeper dive into why a trained technician should complete this task for you.

The Perils of Not Installing Ductwork Properly

The ducts that carry hot and cold air throughout your home need to be installed properly to work at peak efficiency. Minor gaps between ducts can reduce efficiency by up to 30% even if they are clean and otherwise free of damage. Improper installation can also increase the risk that a duct suffers minor or moderate damage that can further erode its effectiveness.

Therefore, it’s in your best interest to hire someone from High Country HVAC in Centerville, UT to install them for you. We can also repair and inspect existing ducts to ensure that your home is comfortable throughout the year.

Accessing Ductwork Can Be Difficult

Installing new ducts will be nearly impossible if you can’t get access to where they need to go. It’s not uncommon for ducts to be tucked into tight corners or covered in drywall. Even if you think that you could get to them, it will take a significant amount of time and effort to do so assuming that you have the tools and experience to get the job done.

Calling a professional ensures that the job is done properly the first time, and it also ensures that the job is done safely. Having a technician do the job may also provide you with a warranty to fall back on if issues arise in the future.
