Frequently Asked Questions
Not finding what you are looking for?
What's causing my ductwork to pop when the furnace starts or stops?
Popping sounds are not unusual if there’s a flaw or damage in your ductwork. The actual sounds appear when there’s more airflow than your ductwork can manage. Trouble with your ductwork can lead to other ventilation and air quality concerns, such as:
- Constant or annoying noise
- Greater energy waste
- Early equipment failure
- Inconsistent heating and cooling
- Damage to the AC’s compressor
- Mold and mildew growth
Should I install a zoning system?
A whole-home zoning system helps you optimize where heating and cooling is concentrated. With extra thermostats and dampers installed in the ductwork, each zone’s temperature can be uniquely controlled.
How healthy is my indoor air?
The concentration of indoor pollutants average 3-5 times higher than outdoor air. In fact, EPA studies have found that exposure to contaminants can be 100 times higher indoors compared to outdoors. Allergens, microorganisms and even household cleaners can contribute to contamination and lower your indoor air quality.
