Professional Duct Installation

It’s important that you have high-quality ducts installed when you’re either building a new home, adding a room to your current home or replacing old ductwork. Ten to fifteen years after installation, most ductwork begins to deteriorate so new ducts should be installed around that time.

Ducts help to circulate clean air throughout your home and a lot of things can go wrong if your ductwork isn’t installed properly. You should only have the installation completed by trained ductwork professionals. When you need quality duct installation service in the greater Hamilton, ON region, you can count on Lancaster Heating & Cooling to exceed your expectations.

Effective Duct Repair

When ducts break or become damaged, they fail to provide heating and ventilation to the rooms of your home. Ducts can leak and cost you a lot in energy bills so duct repairs and sealing should be performed as soon as the problem is found.

Signs your ducts may need attention include:

  • a rise in energy bills,
  • dust buildup in the house
  • rattling noises in the

By sealing any small leaks in your ducts, you prevent energy loss and improve your overall comfort while shielding your ductwork from infiltration by insects and vermin.

Duct Cleaning and Ductwork FAQs

How do I know if my ducts need to be cleaned?

When there is dust/dirt build up on and in your ducts, an unpleasant odour within your home, and/or noticeable changes in people’s breathing (ie coughing, sneezing, sniffling without illness) within your home.

What happens if I don’t clean my ducts?

Ducts can collect dust, mold, moisture, pests, and more when neglected. So you must clean your home’s ducts to avoid unnecessary sickness and costly repairs.

How often should your ducts be cleaned?

Depending on the climate where you live, in Ontario for example, it is recommended to get your ducts cleaned every 2 – 3 years. This becomes 1 – 2 years if you have allergies or live with numerous pets.

Is duct cleaning messy?

Not with Lancaster! Our technicians treat your home as their home. Protective measures our technicians take include shoe coverings and floor runners. We also ensure all mess is cleaned before we leave.

Why does my ductwork “pop” when my furnace starts or stops? 

If there’s a flaw or damage in your ductwork you’ll often hear “popping” sounds indicating there’s more airflow than your ductwork can manage. Trouble with your ductwork can lead to issues with ventilation and air quality, such as:

  • Energy waste
  • Equipment failure or overheating
  • Inconsistent heating and cooling
  • Damage to the AC’s compressor
  • Mold and mildew
