September 11th, 2017

sealing-ductWhen you live in Georgia, you depend upon your air conditioner to keep you cool during the hottest time of the year. Maybe you use a heat pump, which can also help you to warm your home during our relatively mild winters.

Unfortunately, this is not the case in many homes.

We understand why the ductwork may be overlooked, of course. Damaged or leaky air ducts are not going to cause your system to break down immediately, and it is not as though you can simply give your air ducts a quick visual inspection. That doesn’t mean that there is no way in which to recognize trouble with your air ducts in Canton, GA, though. In fact, there are plenty of warning signs that you may notice, provided that you know what it is that you are looking for.

June 19th, 2017
