    What factors affect the cost of a duct repair?

    • State of the ductwork: When Golden Rule arrives at a home for a duct repair, the first thing we do is perform a thorough diagnostic of the entire system. The goal is to understand the extent of the damage as well as the type of damage. If the damage is significant, there may be areas where we suggest replacing the ductwork instead. This can add to cost, but it will dramatically improve your home’s energy bills and air quality in the long run.
    • Accessibility of the ductwork: Most of the ductwork we come across is in a crawlspace or confined behind a wall or ceiling. Both can pose challenges to accessibility, which in turn can increase the cost. At Golden Rule, we’re always upfront with you about the challenges as we see them, and we’ll make sure you’re aware of them before we get to work.
    • Contractor experience: Experienced contractors tend to have higher costs. But that higher cost comes with lots of great benefits such as better protections (longer-lasting warranties, licensed techs, etc.), a higher quality finished product, and faster response times.

    Duct Repair FAQ

    A few signs may tip you off to issues involving your ductwork. Some of the most common signs include:

    • Whistling or hissing sound: If you find that your ducts make a hissing or whistling sound during the operation of your heating and cooling system, then you may have a small tear or hole in the ductwork.
    • Lack of adequate heating and cooling: Inadequate heating and cooling may be linked to a duct work problem that needs to be fixed.
    • Uneven heating and cooling: If one section of your ductwork is damaged, then you may first notice it by the lack of heating or cooling in that area.

    Air duct repairs are essential for the optimal functioning of your HVAC systems, as well as for ensuring that you are living in a healthy home environment. A ventilation system that’s in disrepair can greatly diminish your overall living environment and air quality, and may even hurt your sleep. Poor indoor air quality can also be detrimental to your health and can cause you or your family to suffer from allergies. In addition, damaged ductwork can force your HVAC system to work overtime to heat/cool your home, leading to higher energy bills and a reduced system lifespan.
