Air ducts in your attic direct the flow of air throughout your home and help with energy efficiency. You probably have seen the ducts if you have ever been in your attic, giant, foil-covered tubes, that run throughout the attic. Air ducts are an essential part of keeping your HVAC running properly. Like any part of your house, air ducts will require cleaning from time to time and may also need to be replaced or repaired. Only professionals should service air ducts. The air ducts can be very complex and only a trained professional can truly know the best way to clean, repair and replace them.
