Why is Ductwork Important? HVAC Ductwork Installation Contractors in Utah County & Salt Lake City

Why is proper ductwork so crucial in a home? To keep it simple: Ductwork circulates air around your home. Installation and adequate sizing for ductwork ensure that each part of your home is correctly heated and cooled. Additionally, proper ductwork can reduce the strain on your HVAC system. This not only prolongs the life of your HVAC and reduces the time between replacements, but an efficient system means you’ll save money on your energy bills.

When learning about ductwork, there are three important things to note:
  1. To pass an efficiency test, furnaces and air conditioners require a certain amount of airflow to pass through. This airflow is measured in CFM (cubic feet per minute).
  2. Every home is unique, and there is no “one size fits all” method of ductwork. Older homes, in particular, tend to pose challenges that require specialized knowledge to ensure proper airflow to every room.
  3. In addition to ensuring heated or cooled air flows properly to each room, it should flow back to the correct heating or cooling system.

Choosing the right professionals for your ductwork services is essential to keep your home running smoothly and your bills manageable. Contact the specially trained technicians from Ultimate Air today!

What Happens if Ductwork is Damaged?

When ductwork in your home isn’t installed correctly, is damaged or is malfunctioning, it can have expensive consequences. The heated or cooled air can leak into walls, a crawlspace or an attic through damaged ductwork.

The trouble with your air may seem to come from your heating and cooling system, but the ductwork in your home can also be a contributing factor or cause. When searching for reliable AC repairs, choose Ultimate Air to check out your entire system and find the root cause of the problem.

Since malfunctioning ductwork leaks air into your walls or crawlspaces, you may notice low airflow in certain rooms. If there is a substantial difference or drop in airflow, look into ductwork repair to patch any leaks.

Gaps or holes in ducts can create a whistling or rattling sound when the pressurized air from your heating or cooling system is pushed through them.

If your home seems excessively dusty after your air comes on, or you notice actual dust blowing out of your vents, you may have a leak, hole or crack in your ductwork. Properly functioning ductwork should reduce the amount of dust and debris circulating in your home.

Believe it or not, pests or mold may be a sign of damaged ductwork. Holes or cracks can allow pests to enter your ductwork and create nests. These nests can trigger allergies and disease, so ensuring your ductwork is in good condition is important.

Ultimate Air provides expert HVAC ductwork installation contractors services in Utah County & Salt Lake City.

Air Filters

One of the most important things you can do to keep your ductwork clean and working is to change your air filter. If you've seen your energy bills increase, the issue might not be with a faulty furnace or air conditioner—it might be a dirty filter. Dirty air filters can cause poor HVAC system operation, leading to higher bills as your furnace or air conditioner struggles to do its job.

Regularly replacing the air filter in your HVAC system will help make your home or business safer, cleaner and more comfortable for everyone. We recommend changing the filters monthly.

Don't hesitate to call if you have an old air filter and you think you might need your blower fan or ductwork cleaned. Our highly trained technicians are happy to answer any questions you may have.

Why Change Your Air Filters Regularly?

It's not just your budget that can take a hit due to a dirty air filter. Here are a few of the serious problems caused by dirty or old air filters.

The accumulation of excess dirt in a fan can cause dust and dirt to build–up inside your duct system, leading to mold or allergen problems in your home or business.

Dirty air filters make it so fans have to work harder to push air through. In extreme cases, this may cause a system to "freeze up."

If dirt and dust buildup inside a duct system gets bad enough, you may need to pay for a costly cleaning—or have to replace the system altogether.

We mentioned before that a dirty filter could lead to higher energy bills because it reduces system effectiveness. A dirty filter can cause the cooling coil on your system to be blocked with dirt or even have frost buildup. Both of these things will reduce and possibly block airflow in the system.

New Home Construction

An efficient duct system is essential for new home construction! Start strong with a smoothly functioning system that can save you money and headaches in the long run.

Choosing a skilled professional to install ductwork is essential to a new build. Not all homes are created equal, and each build has its own unique challenges. A trained technician from Ultimate Air can keep your brand-new home properly heated, cooled and efficient.

Benefits of an Efficient Duct System in a New Home:
  • Improved comfort. Properly sealed and installed ducts deliver air more efficiently and evenly to each room, ensuring a consistent temperature throughout the home.
  • Lower utility costs. Did you know that correctly installed and insulated ductwork can save homeowners $120 or more each year?
  • Improved air quality. Sealed ducts protect your home from excessive dust, debris, pest pollutants and allergens, keeping your home and family healthy.
  • Lower equipment costs. Duct sealing keeps your bills down because your heating and cooling systems don’t have to work as hard to heat or cool your home.

Basement Finishes

Ready to make the leap and finish your basement? Don’t neglect proper ductwork when making decisions on this important project! Efficient ductwork is essential in maintaining the temperature and comfort of your home. When finishing a basement, it’s important to plan for appropriate-sized ductwork that will match the capacity of your HVAC system. When adding several hundred feet to the finished area of living space, it’s vital to ensure your systems can keep up with the addition.

Current system not cutting it? Our trained specialist technicians can help you navigate the best option to keep you and your home well-ventilated. This usually means either upgrading your current HVAC system or adding a second HVAC system strictly for the new basement. To avoid potential issues, choose a respected and trained technician like those at Ultimate Air.

Additional Services

Return Air

Ductwork services in Utah County & Salt Lake City with Ultimate Air.

When considering ductwork, most of us likely just worry about the air getting to every room. However, the return air component is just as important. Return air ducting is necessary for most rooms to get air back to the furnace.

What makes return air so important? As part of an efficiently working heating and cooling system, this allows air to return to your HVAC and maintain temperature control. If enough return air is unavailable, your system cannot adequately heat or cool your home.

What Will a Heating or Cooling Technician Look For?

Utah County & Salt Lake City Ductwork and HVAC repair - Ultimate Air.

Choose an experienced professional when looking for return air services. There are many considerations only a properly trained technician can see. Here are a few things a specialized heating and cooling technician may look for when examining your return air.

  • Correctly sized air ducts. The size of air ducts is essential because they must be able to carry and return a sufficient amount of air to the system. Ducts that are too small risk restricting your HVAC system, so it won’t be able to keep up with temperature demands.
  • Balanced airflow. Air that is returned via your air return system is recycled, filtered and used again throughout the home. Your ducting should be balanced and able to vent and return the right amount of air to keep your home at a comfortable temperature.
  • Correctly placed and sealed ducts. Return ducts should be placed in hallways, under stairwells or in larger open areas of your home. These ducts should also be appropriately sealed to prevent leaks or other particulates from compromising the airflow. They should remain unobstructed by furniture to ensure they can pull enough air back into the system.

    My furnace stopped working on the coldest day of the year. I called in at 9:00 to see if I get get an appointment for same day service. The receptionist was very helpful and schedule me in for same day service. She was very professional. Within 2 hours of my call, I had a technician at my house. My technician was Frank. This guy was awesome! Within a short time he figured out the problem with my furnace. He was able to repair the problem and perform a maintenance within 2 hours. Frank was fantastic! Frank is a great representative for Ultimate Air. I really appreciate how through and knowledgeable he was. The pricing for the service was very fair. I will recommend this company to anyone having heating and air issues. Thanks Ultimate for the great response and for sending such a great technician! You guys rock!

    Submitted a service request and had Russ call me the very next day to schedule an appointment to fix my AC. He quickly found the issue, fixed it, and gave me some nice tips to keep things running and even threw in a free air filter. Very nice and professional, 100% will call again the next time I have an issue.

    Janelle at the front desk was so amazing and helpful! She listened to my AC story. She got me right in even though they are so busy. Russ came out and fixed the problem same day. Russ is super knowledgable and he did a great job. This is a honest company that gets the job done! We are very impressed. We highly recommend them and will continue to use them. Thank you so much Ultimate Air!! Zac & McKenzie Engle

    I hired Ultimate Air to fix multiple issues caused by First Choice. Ultimate was a great value and a pleasure to work with. The installers sealed my duct runs, fixed numerous problems (all detailed in my review of First Choice), and even installed my EcoBee for free. I fully intend to have Ultimate back out to my home to do one additional job for me. I would absolutely call these guys first for my next HVAC repair or installation.

    I called at about 10 o’clock on a Sunday night to try and get some help with an error code my furnace was giving me (Ultimate Air phone number is on my furnace to call for any service needs) and by 7:30 in the morning on Monday, I got a call walking me through a simple fix that I would have had no idea how to do myself. He easily could have charged me to come out and be at my house for two minutes, but he walked me through it and now things are finally warming up again at my house. I had called a dozen places before I noticed his number on my furnace and none of them even tried to help me, they all just wanted to charge me a $70+ service fee to even come out and talk to me. They’ve earned my business for a long time!

    We have used Ultimate on our new construction homes for a few years now. We are very impressed at the quality of their work, responsiveness and communication. Jason and Vern are some of the best in this trade. Grateful to have found such a good subcontractor to be on our team!

    Our old AC unit finally called it quits during the hottest week of the summer. Ultimate air came out the same day and got going on the fix. They were very knowledgeable and their prices beat other bids that we had gotten last year when we had issues. I am so glad we were sent their way after feeling like we got taken advantage of by the couple of larger companies we dealt with last summer and again in the winter with our furnace. They even fixed the bad duct work set up in our furnace room. Thank you for being one of the good and honest contractors that are hard to come by these days!

  • Ultimate Air - 5 Star Review By Lisy Fish

    Ultimate Air was fast, professional, prompt and very competent! They beat others in price and service. Very easy to work with. Amazing customer service!! We had a steam humidifier installed. I have heard good things about this humidifier but wasn’t sure how much of a difference it would make. The first morning we woke after turning on the humidifier, we were SO HAPPY!! It was obvious that the air was different, I have dry eye and it didn’t bother me like it usually does. Each winter our skin dries up and my kids get frequent bloody noses from the dryness, so my husband and I keep talking about taking the leap and getting this humidifier. We finally did it. And I know we’re going to say, “why did we wait so long to have this humidifier added to our furnace“! Utah winter air is harsh. I am so happy I have this! Even after a day I can tell a difference in my skin and eyes.

    We have called these guys several times over the past several years and have never been disappointed! We've had them come out for little things like recharging the A/C or just servicing our units, and we've called them out for bigger things, like replacing our air conditioner. I feel like their rates are very fair, and the service is exceptional! They are a very reliable, trustworthy company. We will continue to use them for all of our future HVAC issues for sure!
