Did you know that proper sizing and application of duct work is critical in the efficiency of you heating and cooling system?  Improperly sized ducting can create hot and cool zones as the efficiency of the conditioned air does not meet the needs of the space it is attempting to heat or cool. Throughout our many years of experience, undersized or poorly sealed duct work has been a contributing cause of premature equipment failure.   These premature failures, coupled with higher than normal utility bills can have a dramatic effect on your building maintenance fund or annual budget.
