Duct Services in Orlando, FL
An HVAC system is more than an air conditioner or heater and, a fan. It’s also the extensive ventilation system that carries conditioned air to the rooms and then returns it to the air handler and the HVAC cabinet to create a cooling/heating cycle. Unless your house relies on a ductless mini split heat pump for year-round comfort, it will have a network of supply and return ducts to circulate air through the rooms.
These ducts must remain up to code and in excellent shape, otherwise they will harm comfort, system efficiency, and indoor air quality. Gary Munson Heating & Air Conditioning has worked on HVAC systems since 1978, and our licensed technicians are skilled with a complete range of duct services: duct testing, duct repair, even whole home duct replacement. You can trust us with your ductwork needs in Orlando, FL and throughout Central Florida.

The Problems With Duct Leakage
Air leaks in ducts are the most common trouble residential ventilation systems can encounter. Damage from humidity, inadequate construction or design, insects, or high air pressure can create duct leakage, allowing up to 30% of the air in the ventilation system to escape. Consider what that means—almost a third of the air you’ve already paid to cool or heat is leaving the ducts and going into the attic or spaces between walls. You don’t want to pay money to cool your attic—but that’s what you’ll be doing because of duct leakage.
These air leaks also lead to a drop in air pressure in the ventilation system and reduction in comfort. If air from the closed off spaces enters the ducts, it will also harm air quality and raise humidity.
Duct Testing and Duct Sealing
When you notice a loss of cooling power, higher energy bills, or musty odors from the vents, please call our technicians for help. We’ll provide a site visit to do duct testing and a visual inspection of the ventilation system. If we find duct leakage, we can usually fix the problem with duct sealing using mastic sealant and metallic tape. In more extreme cases, it may require a more extensive duct repair job, such as a duct replacement. Our experts will do what is necessary to see that your ductwork is fixed and up to code.
