Can You Install Ductwork By Yourself?

Usually, homeowners overlook the ductwork component of an HVAC system. These are the tubes used to distribute air throughout your home. These duct systems can help you save money and improve the efficiency of your heating and cooling system over time. Installing faulty ductwork in your house can result in energy waste, air conditioner parts that are overworked or underworked, and unfavorable temperatures.

Do-It-Yourself or hire a professional? Are You Looking for Ductwork Help?

Some people believe that DIY is more economical than hiring an HVAC specialist to help with your air conditioning system. Although ductwork can be done by yourself to save you time, it is recommended that you hire professionals for HVAC work. Ductwork runs throughout your entire home, which can make DIY repairs more difficult than it seems.

Energy Star says that an average home loses around 20% to 30% of air-conditioned space due to duct holes, poor connections, and leaks. If your air conditioner loses 30%, your HVAC system will probably be in use longer than it was before. This can result in high electricity bills as well as constant repairs.

If not looked at, ductwork can begin to deteriorate and cracks will form that allow cool air from the attic to escape. This allows dirty air to get into your home. It is important to notice signs of deterioration of ductwork if you want to save money, protect your health, and improve your comfortability. The ductwork should be efficient and well-designed to distribute air effectively throughout your home.

Keep this in mind. While it may save you money, it will not be cheap. It is not your typical bake-your-own-cookies type of situation, and especially, it is not that easy. Ductwork installation, like other HVAC systems, is too technical for most homeowners. You need to have enough industry knowledge to be successful.

A lack of experience in ductwork installations can lead to serious problems. These complications can cause higher energy costs and inefficiency. You don't want another financial disaster. (Of course! Who does?)

HVAC professionals and experts should only be involved in duct installations. If you are looking to save money, there are many options. It can be found anywhere, other than in your ductwork.
