Duct Repair and Replacement in Columbia, MD
Forced-air heating and air conditioning systems are incredibly popular among homeowners (as well as in commercial properties). There is good reason for this. When you heat or cool air, and then distribute that air throughout a building via a system of ductwork, you are going to be able to adjust temperatures to provide a comfortable environment effectively and quickly.
That is only going to be the case, however, if you are using ductwork that is well-designed, expertly installed, and in good working condition. When you schedule your system installation with our team, the ductwork that that system needs will be well-designed and expertly installed. Over time, though, problems can develop. That’s when you may need to contact MBS Mechanical, Inc for duct repair and replacement in Columbia, MD.

Are My Air Ducts in Trouble?
If you are concerned about a car tire going flat, you can just take a walk around the car and look for one that is lower than the others. You cannot do much in the way of a visual inspection of your air ducts, though. These ducts are largely hidden from view—after all, they’re not exactly decorative! That means that you just have to take your chances, right? Thankfully, no.
While you may not be able to just glance over your air ducts, you can learn to spot some of the warning signs that the ductwork may be in trouble. In fact, they’ll probably even seem a bit obvious once you know what sorts of issues to be on the lookout for. Such issues may include the following:
- Uneven heating and/or cooling. If you have leaky ductwork, then chances are you are not going to have even, comfortable temperatures in all of the areas of your home.
- Unusually high heating and/or cooling costs. If you need duct repair or replacement in Columbia, MD, then you are not going to be heating or cooling your home with great efficiency.
- Reduced indoor air quality. If you air ducts are leaking, then they may also be pulling pollutants into the system. When that happens, the air quality throughout your home will suffer.
What Can I Do About It?
Have you noticed any of these problems in your residence? If so, your next step should be to call our number. We’ll be able to pinpoint the source of damages in your ductwork.

In many cases, repairing the ductwork by sealing leaks with an appropriate mastic that hardens as it dries will be an option. In some cases, however, a full duct replacement may be necessary.
