According to PG&E, leaky ducts in attics or crawlspaces can account for 30 percent of a home's heating and cooling energy losses. This results in higher utility bills for you and difficulty keeping your home comfortable.
If you have leaky ducts, here are a few signs you may notice:
- High utility bills in summer and winter
- Difficult-to-heat-and-cool rooms
- Stuffy rooms that never seem to feel comfortable
- Notice a lot of dust in the home and/or around the air grilles
What Can You Do About Leaky Ducts?
Run your system, and check all the ducts and joints you can access. If you suspect leaks, call us at 408.317.2950. Leaks can be sealed with mastic or foil-backed tape. Duct tape is actually not recommended for ductwork, and any fabric-backed tape will deteriorate over time. We prefer to use professional-grade sealing products such as hardcast duct sealant.
Air Duct Insulation
We recommend insulating your ducts. This ensures that the air maintains the correct temperature as it travels to the living spaces in your home.
Air Duct Replacement
When your ductwork can no longer be repaired of its leaks, it’s time for a replacement. Or if you are upgrading or retrofitting your HVAC system, you may need replacement ducts. They are such an important part of your heating and cooling system as well as your indoor air quality. Be sure you talk to our experts so you are ensured of a job well done.
Indoor Air Quality
Indoor Air Quality, or IAQ, is very important to the health and well-being of you and your family.

“Our furnace was acting out and was not maintaining a consistent temperature esp. during colder months. Air Care techs came and analyzed the problem, diagnosed the problem and sent Bryan and Javier to fix the issue. The fix was very involved and requires changing the existing ducts and the related filters. Both Bryan and Javier did an excellent job in repairing and got the job done in reasonably good time. They were courteous and patiently walked us through the entire process and explained the changes being made. They even cleaned up the debris after the work was completed.
Overall very happy with the quality of their work.”

“I was attracted to AirCare because of their Diamond Certification and company values. Completely satisfied with the furnace and a/c routine maintenance. I asked Joey to check on our air ducts due to uneven airflow in the house that we noticed more when we were working from home during COVID. They were in terrible shape and we did a total replacement. Sergio was our lead technician and was always on time, calling to let us know when to expect his arrival, and carefully explaining the work he would be doing at the start of each day. We have dogs and the team was very respectful of our home and the confinement areas that we set up for the dogs while the work was being done. Very happy with the exceptional AirCare team!”

“This was a positive experience from the start. Joey came out to give me an estimate on replacing my forced air ducting. Along with an estimate he also gave us different options as to installation and furnace placement. The price quoted was reasonable and in line with other quotes. Joey co-ordinated with the asbestos removal company so I would be without heat for the minimum amount of time.
Anthony and Moses came out to do the installation. They worked very well as a team. My questions were answered and discussions were had regarding vent placement in each room. Before starting work in a room they would tape and tarp off the area to insure cleanliness.
I am very impressed with all contacts regarding Air Care Heating and Cooling. In this era when customer service doesn’t seem to be a priority, they go the extra mile to insure the customer is satisfied.”

“We had issues with no air flow in one of the bedrooms. We had 3 estimates to repair or replace the air ducts. I decided to go with Air Care because Joey was the most thorough with this estimates and his knowledge. I was going to just replace the air ducts but after talking it over with Joey I decided it would be good to replace my 20 year old heater, too.”
