The Results of Leaking Ductwork

From your Air Conditioning Repair Contractor serving McKinney TX & the Surrounding Area

Air Conditioning Replacment McKinney TX

With most duct systems being installed in attics or basements and therefore “out of sight, out of mind”, it’s often easy to neglect checking the ductwork. But the truth is leaking ductwork can result in 10% to 30% of your units output just wasted and the fact that up to 44% of your utility costs go for heating and cooling you are just throwing that money away. Properly sealing your ductwork can cut this waste to less than 5% if done correctly.:

In addition to leaking ductwork being a huge waste of energy, it also allows for unconditioned and dirty air to be pulled in to the system creating issues you may not consider. The most important issue would be the huge strain your putting on your existing heating and air conditioning system to try heat or cool your home. Other items that may result in leaking ductwork would be the introduction of dust, pollens, molds, and microbes being introduced in to the ac system and your home..

Homeowner’s Policy does not Cover Unlicensed Contractors

Don’t be fooled in thinking your homeowners policy will cover an unlicensed contractor. Most policies will not cover damages caused to your home or property by an unlicensed contractor. Most homeowner policies require that the work be done by licensed contractors; coverage is often specifically excluded for damages caused by contractors working on the side.

Noncompliance of Local Building Codes

Unlicensed contractors are not capable of pulling any necessary permits required in each municipality and unlicensed contractors are often unfamiliar with the applicable building codes. If your new AC system doesn’t comply with building and zoning codes, you may have to correct any non-compliant issues when you try to sell your house.

Poor Quality of Work.

Not all poor quality work is done by unlicensed contractors; however, if there’s shoddy work to be done, your chances are much greater that it will be done by an unlicensed contractor. Sloppy work can have serious ramifications.

Limited Recourse for Uncompleted AC Repairs or Replacment

If you have a dispute with a licensed contractor, you can call the Texas Department of Licensing and Regulations. While this doesn’t necessarily ensure a contractor will play fair, it does provide a substantial incentive to do so. They cannot take action against an unlicensed contractor. Therefore your only recourse is a civil lawsuit. And because an unlicensed contractor can go in and out of business so readily, such a lawsuit is frequently a waste of time. Typically a contract with an unlicensed contractor is not legally enforceable.
